BRING BACK OUR BOYS- By Dauda Haruna Tula

  The spate on insecurity in Nigeria most especially in the north western part of the country is no longer  news,but the rate at which these so called Bandits carry out their dastardly act undeterred is what amazes me.

 Nigeria is gradually sliding into anarchy  with every day,a disturbing news emerging from the polity. when the controversy of sixteen Kano indigenes has not subsided whether they were  killed,in a ghastly car accident,or they were killed by bandits. comes the scary news of the abduction of over 600 students of government science secondary school kankara.

  Abduction of school students in large numbers in recent times can be  traced to the one that happened in CHIBOk then the mass killings of students in FGC Buniyadi,then Dapchi in Yobe and now Kankara.

  Is a public knowledge that the Nigerian government has failed to give its citizens,the much needed and required education to prepare them enough to compete with the global standard,but what is most scary now is their inability to even secure the dilapidated, poorly furnished and understaffed schools.

 When I first heard of the news I tagged it as a national disgrace,that little children in schools are no longer safe,when they go out to seek their fundamental right to education.

 In a sane society heads would have rolled by now,ranging from security personnel to government officials for this national tragedy,but as usual our government will come out and say they are shocked by this act and condemn it in strong terms and perpetrators will be brought to book. That's the end,the nation will keep quiet and wait for the next tragedy to occur.

 The president and commander in chief has just arrived his home town Daura for a week long private visit,when this calamity befell the students and parents of Kankara,but what baffles me is the audacity of this Bandits,to carry out this operation, Kankara in katsina state in fact Daura is just some 84 miles from the home of the C in C,that's no surprise as the Daura town itself is at the mercy of Bandits.

 I can't ever claim to have understood the psychological trauma,physical imbalance and thoughts that are going through the minds of these parents,but I know a sound sleep and a good meal will sure evade them because they have lost the appetite.

No wonder a famous speaker,once said;  " the children of the poor you fail to educate will come back one day and hunt you" and now they just did.

  We demand the FG to expedite action and make sure those boys are returned safe and sound ,we demand the unconditional release of the students of Government Science Secondary school Kankara.
