I RECENTLY FOUND OUT IT IS CALLED "RAFFIA HOOKERI SEED".

Hello everyone,trust we all are enjoying the holidays? So recently I saw mum eating this seed and it dawned on me that I had seen it before,guess my childhood days but surprisingly I never knew the English name,not even in my local dialect. Mum was lost too but she mentioned it in our local dialect which I can't remember now. I decided to do my research both online and offline and I arrived at it's name "Raffia Hookeri Seed". Also known as Raffia palm seed or Ivory Coast raffia palm.

Raffia Hookeri seed has a wide range of uses and it is important to Africans. You know the particular palm tree that palm wine is tapped from? Yeah right that is where this seed is gotten from. It is the same seed planted for the palm wine tree to germinate. Palm wine can be tapped from the tree and it's seed serves as food and medicine.

Mum explained that it is boiled before consumption because the raw fruit is poisonous. It has a very bitter taste. I could not even eat it but had a taste of it though. Mum ate it like she was eating something sweet. She stressed that the raw fruit of it is poisonous,and it can be crushed and used as fish poison. Amazing right?

Raffia Hookeri seed has high concentrations of vitamins ,iron and calcium. The elderly ones in my hometown like to take it like they do kolanuts.

Whoever is directly controlling the V2K told me to kill myself.
They told me if I killed myself now it would save the lives of countless others.
Saying the longer I wait to kill myself the more people will suffer.


They are reckless and should have shown the proper media what they had before taking me hostage for 5 years. I know there are many in prison that dont deserve to be there because of this. Your stay in prison will not be fun @battleaxe and friends. People are going to want you dead when they find out what you did. I hope you die a slow painful death. You sick mother fuckers.

Its a terrorist act on American soil while some say its not real or Im a mental case. Many know its real. This is an ignored detrimental to humanity domestic and foreign threat. Ask informed soldiers in the American military what their oath is and tell them about the day you asked me why. Nobody has I guess. Maybe someone told ill informed soldiers they cant protect America from military leaders in control with ill intent. How do we protect locked up soldiers from telling the truth?
