    Aisha Buhari cooks a pot of beans and suddenly 21 girls are released. Are these not the same girls that the whole world was told had been married off to men in Chad, Niger, Sudan etc?

      What are you even saying? Are you another hollow Nigerian who believes in retarded conspiracy theories?
      Over 200 girls were abducted, isn’t it possible that some of them could actually have been married off? Or does 21=200+? Some of these girls have been sold off as sex slaves while some are still in captivity, so what is so surprising or impossible about rescuing 21 girls that you’re unable to grasp with your micro brain?
      Don’t tell me you’re another Jonathan sympathiser who is yet to recover from the disgraceful and damaging defeat.

      Madam, sit down somewhere and rest. No girls were abducted. You do not have to be so smart to realize that APC has finally decided to deal this hand using the ‘Chibok Girls’. Even a total dolt can tell that the girls pictured here are probably paid actresses. But Nigerians do not like to face the truth, we love well fabricated and false realities. Nothing this government will do can surprise me anymore.

      Please don’t play politics with every thing ehn, you only need to look at these pictures and see the truth in this. This is so sad and pathetic. This is about the girl child, could be your sister, cousin, niece, friend etc. And this could even be you if you are female. You don’t want to imagine what damage has been done to the souls of these girl. Let everything not turn to a Buhari/Jonathan debate. Even if I don’t agree to most things Buhari does but I will have to thank him for this one. No HUMAN BEING should go through this.

      @A real Nigerian, I see you have decided to crawl out of the cess pit you went into. It is amazing that with all ur so called knowledge you fail to see that anytime there is a controversy, this Govt comes up with some stunt. Shit head maggot like you. Did you forget to take your meds again? You will be fine hopefully.

      Which girls are these? Are they from the school or are these some random girls kidnapped? A lot of people were kidnapped/abducted. Which one are these. APC stop pulling wool over our eyes.

    No, “na only waka come” cook the beans with the $2.1billion they shared. May the blood of innocent children killed, soldiers that the same corrupt judges, and your heroes like GEJ and badeh blamed for mutiny be on you and your supporters, Amen! As for your Mummy Gee on BN, I pray Thiefnubu , Amaechi, obasanjo, Fashola’s, Atiku and all first ladies as she earlier said pay for their sins. I will never support evil. Or say one thief caught should be allowed to go cos they haven’t caught others. Do mother’s a party to hypocrisy. Let your children unborn pray for you someday with the decisions you make today and what you stand for. But someof una are sold out to the devil himself. What a shame? Nigerians trultdeserve the leaders they have.

      And you had to turn it to christian/whatever. Whether mostly christian or not, lets just be happy some of them are back and pray for the release of the rest. No one, christian or otherwise should go through this horrifying experience.
      I pray God heals them, cos no amount of therapy can erase what they went through.

      If you don’t see my point that these are girls whose religion does not question western education, and who most likely, were coerced to denounce their faith, then I can’t help you.

      You think it doesn’t matter? Mcheew, Southerners always forming overly objective. You don’t know where you are yet.
      What prevents you from being happy and still questioning? Are they mutually exclusive?

      Not that it is important at this time but the majority of the girls kidnapped are christians.. Chibok community has a large percentage of christians.

    How do some of you live with yourself when you say no girls were abducted? You live in your own comfortable corner of the world and yet you trivialize the pains of others. Have you sold your conscience on the alter of politics? So what will it take for you to believe oh ye doubting Thomases with no heart? Until you see them face to face and interview them yourselves, abi? I just can’t with the ignorance you people spew in the name of intelligence. That is how you didn’t believe there were herdsmen attacks until it happened in the south. If it does not happen at your door step, it is not true. So you think the minority Christians who live in these places already marginalized and under a lot of persecution will also go along with the “scam” by pretending that their daughters were kidnapped? Common to travel to Abuja, many of you will not, because you are afraid of the north yet you say this is a scam, because how can a whole you be wrong? How can, the armchair journalist and conspiracy theorist that you are?

    I have asked you people before, what is the worst thing that Boko haram can do? Kill and mutilate people in their hundreds, thousand? Have they not been doing that even right in the capital city Abuja with all of the security measures? So what is so mysterious about kidnapping two hundred unarmed and innocent young girls in a remote village; in a school that probably has no fence not to talk of security man. Is it the vehicles to cart them away that they lack, or the ammunition or the will power or motive? What exactly is you peoples argument? Is boko haram so innocent and nice that you cannot imagine them kidnapping girls? Even when they release videos and say themselves that they kidnapped the girls, you people say its is a lie. They release the girls and you can see them in pictures, you still say it is a lie. Na wa oh…sometimes I wonder if there is a trace of human empathy left in some of you, really!

    Please ehn, allow those of us who believe that they were kidnapped to rejoice in the Lord. Whether it was orchestrated or coincidental we don’t know. All we know is, girls were lost and some have been found and we pray for the release of the rest along with the release of your conscience. Don’t come here with your useless theory you hear!

      Sometimes, its hard to believe that we have allowed politicians to blind us into thinking that everything is politics .. we are talking about people here. Children that went to school and never saw their parents again, parents that dropped their daughters in school and didn’t see them again.
      Put yourself in the shoes of this parents….I can’t imagine this happening to my child and I bet a lot is cannot imagine it.
      Let’s be happy for the parents that got their daughters back and pray that more will come back

    I strongly believe that this has been stage managed by this desperate party called APC in collaboration with the government of Borno state. Yes from all indications, which was confirmed by the then minister for Education Nyesom wike. He loudly said that the government of Borno state was warned to merge the students with another school because of insecurity considering that the school has no electricity, no security but the state government insisted that they would not be relocated saying that they would make plans for their security which they never did until the girls were abducted obviously because they had planned to kidnap this girls just to spite Jonathans administration. Of course the minister had a limit to what he could have done considering that the school is a state owned school . Yes, it’s only in Nigeria that that governor would be allowed to have been moving about freely till today without serious interrogations and detain. So what are saying….. Until we begin to act accordingly in Nigeria irrespective of region, ethnic and geographical sentiments our country will never get better and move forward. Thank God the girls have finally surfaced. That’s all I can say!
