14th April 2014, the beginning of any parents nightmare. Chibok in Borneo State Nigeria. 214 school girls were kidnapped by Boko Haram, the extremist terrorist group based in north eastern Nigeria. 11th December 2020. Kankara, North Western Katsina State, Nigeria, approximately 333 school boys were kidnapped when gunmen attacked their secondary school. Guess who has claimed responsibility once again? Boko Haram the Islamic group who’s name means “Western education is forbidden”
The sick twisted mindsets of these disgusting bastards, using innocent children to play with, like porn’s in their, so called fantasy games of ‘Religion, Love, Power, War and Propaganda’. You have to ask yourself how and why is this happening? Tens of thousands of people have been killed in attacks by this group as they increasingly target civilians, then retreat like dogs back to the mountainous areas from which they began.
How? in a region where this apparently goes on way to often, can criminal gangs continuously get away with robbing and kidnapping innocent people for ransom. A ransom that all to often, is never paid or traded for with other agendas in play. Does the Nigerian Government not give a dam or do they just not see their citizens as a valuable asset to the future of their country, to make more of an effort for them? Is the Government really at all interested in their fate?
Nigeria is blessed with rich natural resources, such as, Diamonds, Gold, Crude Oil, Coal and yet with all these money making resources, the government has still in this century, an inability to supply ongoing adequate clean drinking supplies for its citizens, has mass poverty and scarce availability to basic resources, so its a little understandable that ensuring the safety of its citizens comes second best against these brutal militant thugs. The basic human rights of these people are stripped and laid bare for the taking. Although Nigerian soldiers and intelligence officers are combing the forests in search of the missing school children, more needs to be done.
Its been 6 years since the girls were taken from their school. Although almost half have escaped, been rescued by Nigerian Military forces or freed, there are still at least 100 girls missing. Some who had escaped claimed their teachers on that fateful day, just left them and didn’t try to help.
What is the fate for these innocent boys and girls? Will they be rescued? Will they escape? or will they just never return? The families are worried that their children will be brainwashed and held for years, raped, beaten and killed and all the Nigerian president can do is make statements that blame parents for not supplying enough information about their children as to one of the reason for why they cannot be rescued. Villages are frightened, afraid to leave their homes, a sanctuary that should be a safe place, but instead is a target for murder, pillage and abuse.
The full forces of the law, security and military should be standing up for these citizens, forced into jungle camps, used in propaganda videos, assaulted into sex slavery, forced to marry their kidnappers and beaten into joining this elite group of terrorists, all in the name of Islam, using terrorist plots to uphold its practices.
Education Minister Obiageli Ezekwesili claims that their soldiers are either underpaid or not paid for weeks, untrained, have poor discipline, low moral and hold dilapidated equipment. Some Generals have even come under investigation into selling arms to Boko Haram. The minister has quoted “They are incapable of eliminating these criminals. On the contrary, corrupt officers are even collaborating with them.”
When will the United Nations uphold its own laws on freedom and rights, if this government fails to do so?
This war on humanity needs to stop. Please, bring back our children !!
