It's a very old writing system here in Nigeria. It's so old only a few people know about it. Read about it yourself here;

Well it doesn't to me. Did you mean the one for love? Like I said, this is really old and I don't know much about it myself. There are not much materials to go on but there's a possibility the writing must have been mixed up somewhere. Not by natives of course, but by those materials that are available.
