In our heydays in ABU Zaria, ‘Toilet Journalism’ was the best way of passing messages and expressing grievances! All public toilets in Kashim Ibrahim Library, Mosques, Churches and departments were used by students to throw banters and jibes.
Lecturers are usually the worst hit as the students hurl worded missiles at them endlessly.
This platform also served as a screen box for religious intolerance as both faithful take out time to remind us about the supremacy of their religions.
Student leaders also take their share of the barrage as they come under the hammers of these ‘Toilet Journalists’.
