It’s safe (ironic, right?) to say Nigeria is in a total state of unrest.
It has been 15 days since 200+ schools girls were abducted in Chibok region of Borno, by the Boko Haram sect.
The parents of the children as well as activists have staged protests around the country asking the government to help find these young souls.
The latest update was shocking and totally disappointing. It is being alleged that they have been married off for N 2,000 each to members of the group in Chad and Cameroon.
With the #BringBackOurGirls, social media has been buzzing about the situation. Celebs are also speaking out on the issue.
One of the many is Nollywood actress Stella Damasus. In a series of posts via her Instagram page @stelladamasus, she speaks on the trending topic.
How safe are we? As 2015 elections are approaching so are the dangers that come with politics. Too much hypocrisy going on with this abduction. The people who can really put a stop to this are busy with plans for 2015.
How come we don’t have a “secret extraction unit” who are properly trained. What about the jobless graduates roaming the streets looking for work. The money to be used for creating work and agencies to help the citizens of the country, is being used for parties, unnecessary political psA, giving huge sums of money to heads of industries and departments to increase votes, buying mansions all over the world, private jets, ghost contracts and their grand children’s trust funds.
If they are telling me that this is not political, then why did they not abduct boys in school? How come they are against western education but they are using western video equipment to send their message? How come they are using western ammunition to commit these crimes? How come they know how to make bombs? Trust me these people are more intelligent than most of our graduates. They have been properly trained. So what is the real deal?
Bring back our girls please. #bringbackourgirls”
