“Protect our children”

“Stop the Killing’

Today women in Lagos took to the streets of Lagos to mourn the tragic loss and kidnapping of children in Yobe recently. The match tagged “Nigerian Women Mourn – Walk” also took place in Abuja and Port Harcourt.

The walk kicked off at Oregun and the women matched to the Lagos State Government Secretariat in Alausa, Ikeja.

They submitted a letter of protest to be transferred to the Federal Government with a request that drastic actions be taken against child killers.

    Seriously? I support the demonstration, but I believe it will have more impact in Yobe, Borno or one those BH havens. What is the use when upper middle income Nigerian women are protesting in Lagos? If they really want to show us how serious they are, they should take to the streets in one
    of these states and march together with the mothers of the desceased children.

      If I believed for one moment that these women putting themselves in mortal danger to protest in Yobe would change anything I would drive the bus to take us there. But a government that remains unfazed by the senseless murder of children is hardly going to be moved by a few more unnecessary deaths. Until we collectively start making this country uncomfortable for our leaders, they will continue to devalue our lives. Hopefully those who profit from the turmoil and violence in our country will meet a similar fate to those children.

      It’s better than nothing Wale. If women in all states of this country will follow suit, the politicians will do more than issue useless press releases. I support these ladies.

      Wale, they’re taking a stand and sometimes that’s enough of a catalyst for more. In any case, I would object seriously to any attempt to place these women in mortal danger by sending them to protest in Yobe. Have you been to Yobe? I have and Yobe is not somewhere you want to marching in the streets and holding protests. The masses are very easily incited.

    I’m glad people are stil making noise about this. What happened in Yobe was so disgusting, it makes it hard for me to muster up any enthusiasm for the future of our nation. The govt mustn’t rest till these murderers are brought to justice.

    This is so sad! May God have mercy on our Land. There must be a price to pay for all these innocent blood shed for nothing they know nothing about!

    Tear drops…..What disgusts me the most is that people think life can just go on because their kids are safe…No!!!!! This is how it starts until your child or close relative is affected then maximum empathy is expected… We need to something about it and quickly. “Nip it at the bud”. Anyway I pray God gives us guidance on how to carry on. We honestly need a revolution.

      Boko Haram has been targeting innocent children in schools. Recently, there was an attack on a Federal Government College in Yobe. The boys were slaughtered while the girls were told to go and marry.

    I am in 100% support of these women and killing of those innocent children God will judge them all. Federal Govt has to do something .How did 20 Hilux enter the state without armed men noticing and they operated for three hours. There is problem in Nigeria.
