Fans have however criticized the actress for ignoring the killings in Benue and Nigeria in general and praying for a foreign country.
“I like u a lot and I honestly don’t want to be mad at you.. How many times have u posted anything about the Fulani herdsmen killing? Niger delta bombing ,Boko haram, ghastly accident even the starvation killing people in Nigeria? Now pray for France, I sympathize with France and have them and the entire world in my prayers, u celebrities should stop being selective in your post about incidents, the fact that most of u are privileged to travel does not make u their spokesmen, Honestly enough of all this, the other day Tiwa salvage said BLACK LIVES( all life deserve to live) let’s filter our words b4 we say them..I love u genny and at ur stage I should expect u know the right from wrong. Safe,” one Instagram user wrote.
The attack, comes eight months and a day after Islamic State gunmen and suicide bombers killed 130 people in Paris.
