    Clearly an inside job. All money related or some kind of beef.
    Hope she’s safe.

    Good for her, it’s because of all the money they are stealing. People are angry and will continue to lash out.

    Nigerians online cried out when NOI’s mother was kidnapped. When the girls were gone, crickets, lies, and threats from the fed govt. Now they have taken another important family member. Sorry, my concern are with the girls who have yet to return after 6 months.

    @bruno….The poor girl does not deserve to be kidnapped. Stop justifying evil.Nothing justifies kidnapping.

      @nnenne. 22 love this for a stupid comment like urs, how is that possible, na juju u dey use. I dont support violence in any way but sometimes u have to fight back ur opressors. I hope they dont harm the girl tho. when they start attacking politicians and their families, I think they wilk sit up and stop stealing all our money and start improving this country’s security.

    Christmas is near, I guess. People are starting to prepare.
    It will shock these kidnappers the day serious action starts being taken against their crimes. For now, they should enjoy the bonanza.

    Kidnapping and militancy in Nigeria is basically the “chicken coming home to roost”. Am in agreement with Bruno on this one. If assassins, kidnappers and suicide bombers start targeting the thieves in government, their families and their cronies, there will be a reduction in corruption.

    How can you people be so heartless and keep on saying the girl deserves to be kidnapped for her sister’s sins? Havent you heard what Jesus said about weeping with those that weep and rejoicing with those that rejoice? I know politicians are very corrupt but for goodness sake my people let us leave God to deal with them in the only way he knows best. But if something unfortunate happens to anybody no matter who they are or what they have done, please it is evil to be rejoicing immediately in someone’s predicament. It is not a healthy or good behaviour to try to play God! Let us think of her life in danger and put ourselves in her shoes, then you will feel the need to have pity on her, We are all human beings please and anything can happen to anybody. I read the same thing to when Alamaisehye’s son was killed in Dubai. Please let us be merciful and leave judgement ONLY TO GOD! You dont know what will happen to you or members of your family tomorrow

      @Mohammad what has Jesus got to do with this? Why not use the prophet Mohammed to relate to this piece, enough is enough you are so vain. Haba

      There are many ways to make your point without bringing Jesus into it. I wish a lot politicians loved Jesus the way you seem to. If they did we wouldn’t be where we are today. I go to church too but please give Jesus a resting break today. It is enough to simply say “It is bad to rejoice over someone else’s evil.”

    Muhammad , are you sure you are not one of them.one thing withleaving this kind of thing to keep going on is , what happen after the purge of eliminating the so -called bad guys, they will turn to the good guys cos evil is evil , it does not matter what name you give.why all of this—-simple, nigeria is a nation without rule of law, where gangs, terrorists, foundamentalists theives , killers , kidnappers, totally ignorant and uneducated are the law ,there is no justification for this type of behaviour cos today it is them and tomorrow it is you

      Am I sure I am not one of them? See question! In the words of Yemi Alade, Ayakata!

      By the way I have no problem with what you’re saying. Like you say, evil is evil is evil. I don’t expect the government to only show concern when one of their own becomes a victim. That’s what the “chicken coming home to roost” means in this instance.

      @Mohammad its your brothers that came for the 300 girls you stating about? So what are you gonna do???

      Aisha your comprehension skills leave a lot to be desired. If you had read the entire strand of my conversation with Tenya which I referred to, you would have understood that it was her who brought Jesus into the matter first and not have embarassed yourself with that comment.
      And to your other comment about it being my “brothers” who took the 300 girls; not only am I not Moslem nor from anywhere near Northern Nigeria, you show yourself to be deeply ignorant and hopelessly tribalistic. What if I was Moslem and/or northern? Can I not demand action from a government that is meant to protect all of its citizens? Ode!

    • Mohammad

      October 26, 2014 at 10:25 pm

      Two points on which you reveal embarrassing ignorance:
      1. I am neither Moslem nor from Northern Nigeria- if that’s what you mean about my brothers being the ones that abducted the girls. We are all Nigerians and have a right to demand action from our government to facilitate the release of the girls. Let’s not get into some ridiculous tribalistic/religious argument.
      2. If you’d bothered to read the entire conversation between Tenya and me, you’d have realised that it wasn’t me who brought Jesus into this. I have no reason to invoke Mohammed, Amadioha, or any other number of religious spokespeople to address her original comment.
      We Nigerians need to learn to address issues without any resort to religious sentiments. My points are not invalidated by my ethnicity, or my religion (or my lack of one).

    We cannot feel safe amercing wealth for ourselves and keep building high walls, and leaving our environment poor. We must adopt this mindset of making the life of the least of us better before we can feel truly safe. It might just be some family member or some aggrieved house help.
