Day 221! ………………How Did We Get Here? (172)


A little over two weeks after my last blog, I am back. I must say… in those two weeks, nothing really changed. Our girls are still in captivity, the Nigerian government still has no clue about how to end Boko Haram’s onslaught, the people are desperate and confused, and the politicians now have other priorities. Did we know things will come to this from the beginning? Yes, I did. From the very beginning of this saga, I said that the Nigerian government will eventually sweep this whole thing under the carpet. It is their style of doing things. Whenever faced with difficult situations, like this is insurmountable, they try to wish it away. Only this time, they cannot wish Boko Haram away.

We have asked that heads should fall for the incompetent way that Boko Haram has been, and is being handled, but so far, no heads have fallen, rather we see the politicians scrambling to entrench themselves in whatever positions they find themselves. Boko Haram continues to rampage the country. I know that in the end, they will fail, and Nigeria will be rid of them, but at what cost?

Until my two weeks leave, I commented daily on Boko Haram’s activities in and around Nigeria. In the future, I will address this issue only if there is absolutely something new to talk about. Right now, there is nothing new, and I hate to repeat myself. So, dear readers and followers, look out for those times.

(We will remain alert!)

  1. Such evil deeds committed in the name of a great religion are both sickening and saddening. We must strive to rid the earth of such appalling ignorance and brutality, cynically masquerading as religious fervour…

  2. Joy I saw the kidnapping on the news and those people who did this are absolutely despicable. I am so sorry that those girls were taken and still not heard from. God only knows what happened to them. As I think about Nigeria, I remember a dear friend of mine, Fr. Thomas Ebong, whom I met while working at a Catholic Church here in Detroit, Michigan. He was the resident priest at the time. Working there is what inspired me to finally write about our Catholic community in my book. I will pray for Nigeria.

    1. Very kind of you Shirley, and thank you very much for your concern. I started writing every day in support of the girls, but when those rascals said they had married all of them off, I got discouraged, and stopped writing until something really good happens again.
