‘Ab­ducted girls moved abroad’

Daily Trust - - VIEWS -

Fly­ing flags over some lo­cal gov­ern­mentsinNige­ri­aand­mar­ry­ing ab­ducted girls with­out the par­ents’ con­sents seem to be the new ide­ol­ogy that some­one wants to in­tro­duce. Theyre­al­ly­wan­ta­piece­ofmy­coun­try! God save us.


id­ingba2002@ya­hoo.com ************************** Nigeria, my only coun­try, is in a sorry state. Imag­ine the ac­tion of our mil­i­tary for­ma­tion in Bama as stated (in the story) who al­lowed these in­no­cent girls to be carted away. There is need for the de­cen­tral­iza­tion of our chain of com­mand to en­able the States’ Chief Se­cu­rity Of­fi­cers have lit­tle power re­gard­ing se­cu­rity mat­ters. De­spite the fact that we were told our borders were closed and that mon­i­tor­ing will be in­ten­si­fied, look at what had just hap­pened. My heart bleeds for these in­no­cent girls.


jun­glesly3494@ovi.com ************************** Some­one should help me hold back tears over this kid­nap in­ci­dent of our beloved daugh­ters. Some­times I imag­ine if any of them had been my bi­o­log­i­cal off­spring, how would I feel? In fact, no na­tional is­sue has ever touched me like this. Even the bomb­ings have not touched me like this. My ques­tion now is, what are our se­cu­rity men re­ally up to. Must these an­gels be al­lowed to fil­ter into the world of evil men per­pet­u­ally? Oh, God, where are you? Sadly, from this ac­count, it means Boko Haram al­ready has a ter­ri­tory within and around Nigeria firmly un­der their con­trol; and with­out the pres­ence of Nigeria se­cu­rity out­fits to chal­lenge them while mov­ing about with their now ‘slave’ wives.


sobeko54@ya­hoo.com ************************** The Ser­vice Chiefs are also part of this movie. They are ei­ther tac­itly sup­port­ing the Boko Haram or ne­glect­ing their re­spon­si­bil­ity so that the cri­sis will linger on, and they will keep en­joy­ing the mas­sive unac­counted money from this cor­rup­tion-rid­dled govern­ment. Any­time their spokesper­son Chris Oluko­lade speaks, Nige­ri­ans be­come less con­fi­dent. Is it a strat­egy that the Army could not en­cir­cle the Sam­bisa for­est and block any pos­si­ble exit? Don’t we have enough man­power to man Sam­bisa and all routes con­nect­ing to Cameroon and Chad ? Only time will tell.

Com­rade Bishir Dauda Katsina

un­shak­able­com­rade@ya­hoo.com ************************** Nigeria is in­deed in a “sorry state”. Imag­ine with all the out­cries, the in­sur­gents were able to carry those girls across to other coun­tries. That means there is no col­lab­o­ra­tive ef­fort to save the girls with the neigh­bour­ing coun­tries. Also, imag­ine the in­sen­si­tiv­ity of the se­cu­rity agents on get­ting the hints on move­ment of the girls! I will say it again and again, that Nige­rian au­thor­i­ties have failed us.

sir­i­mayeh@ya­hoo.com ************************** Gen­eral Chris Oluko­lade nei­ther con­firmed nor dis­puted the in­for­ma­tion that some­one re­ported to the mil­i­tary.

naal­lahlabaran@ya­hoo.com ************************** How do you marry off a woman with­out the con­sent of her par­ents or guardians? This is ridicu­lous and to­tally stupid. They have slaugh­tered stu­dents, burnt down schools, killed teach­ers and are now steal­ing girls; this is ab­surd. The first word that was re­vealed to the prophet was “read”, in an in­def­i­nite man­ner; that is, read any­thing, what­ever it is, though, with pref­er­ence of learn­ing the ba­sis of the re­li­gion be­fore any other thing. In any way, our se­cu­rity agents need to do bet­ter in pro­tect­ing our schools; it is their re­spon­si­bil­ity, es­pe­cially at vul­ner­a­ble places.


u.a.dan­baba@gmail.com ************************** What a painful ex­pe­ri­ence. It is bet­ter for one’s child to die a nor­mal death than to be ab­ducted by Boko Haram. I re­ally sym­pa­thize with the par­ents of these in­no­cent girls. This is­sue is sup­posed to be a na­tional prob­lem, and not Chi­bok com­mu­nity’s alone.


al­haslim@out­look.com ************************** I am be­com­ing sick with this pa­thet­ic­coun­try.IfNige­ri­ahad­wished to ar­rest the Cha­dian pres­i­dent, I am sure it would have done that in 24 hours. Why should these in­no­cent girls suf­fer for no rea­son? There are lots of Mus­lims and lots of Chris­tians among those girls. Why can’t we for on­ce­un­der­standthatthis­gov­ern­ment isonl­y­serv­ingthedevil.Mustit­be­y­our child be­fore you re­act?


ima­maliy@ya­hoo.com ************************** As for me, it’s not too early to start think­ing of how to stop fur­ther re­oc­cur­rence of this sin­ful act of ab­duc­tion. Evil in the name of re­li­gion by forc­ing school girls into sex slav­ery. The in­sur­gents will have their place in hell fire un­less they re­pent.


ngezen@ya­hoo.com ************************** It is in­deed sad that this is hap­pen­ing; too sad. It ap­pears un­be­liev­able. To start with, mar­riage like ev­ery un­der­tak­ing in Is­lam is guided by rules. A mar­riage can only be validly con­sum­mated when these four con­di­tions are met: (1) Pres­ence & ac­cep­tance of Al­wali (Bride’s fa­ther or his ap­pointee (2) Wit­nesses (3) Seega (dec­la­ra­tion of need for the mar­riage by the would-be groom or his Wa­keel (fa­ther/rep­re­sen­ta­tive/ ap­pointee) AND ac­cep­tance of such of­fer by the Al­wali and; (4) Sadaaq/mahr (bride price/dowry). The is­sues: Who were the Al­walis and wit­nesses? Is N2000 up to the min­i­mum Sadaaq? Cer­tainly not, as it is in the range of N8000 - 9000. Above all, who ad­min­is­tered the Seega, cer­tainly not the girls’ par­ents or/rep­re­sen­ta­tive. Hence, if this ac­tu­ally hap­pened, it is null and void and is there­fore un-Is­lamic. A pur­ported Is­lamic out­fit knows this.
