Day 77! ………………How Did We Get Here? (18)

The persistent and daily hammering on the case of the abducted girls seem not to faze the Nigerian authorities whose job it is to find and return the girls. They seem to have developed the attitude that those still harping and yapping on that matter are barking dogs. And that very soon, all that barking will stop, and perhaps, things will return to normal. As far as they are concerned, they are done with it.

Otherwise, where are all their excuses leading us? At first, they said that they knew where the girls were being held, and then lately, that they do not know where the girls are, that the girls may all have been split up in small groups to make freeing them even more difficult, that the captors may have booby trapped the area where the girls are kept to prevent any attempt in freeing them, that given all of these, freeing the girls may put the lives of the girls in danger if anyone tries to free them. So, where do we go from here?

We are familiar with all of the above excuses, do we just do nothing? Everything seems to be at a standstill. In the meantime Boko Haram continues to dare everyone with their daily and sustained assaults. Their exploits have succeeded only in exposing the ills of Nigeria and in making Nigeria look like merde to the whole world.

(We will continue).
