Guys, I’m here crying. I can’t take this.
Ever since the beginning of it months ago, I’ve made sure to keep informed. Our family marched at the embassy. I’ve blogged, instagram’ed and tweeted. All I have are tears.
Many may argue that we should have known it’d go this way but none shall be blamed for having hope! No, I am not Nigerian but this story stab my stomach ever since it happened I’ve changed the way I see the world. My fear our children, communities, generation and education!!
Today as I do my weekly research and update on our African sisters…the following is what I found 😥
Rebel leader reveals fate of Nigeria’s Chibok girls
Nov. 4 (GIN)—Hopes kindled by Nigeria’s President Goodluck Jonathan of a deal struck with the Boko Haram terror group for the release of some 200 girl students were dashed last week by a video just released by Boko Haram leader Abubakar Sheka.
In the video, Shekau denies the existence of any deal with Nigerian officials. Further, he said, the schoolgirls will never be released, because they’ve been given as wives to Boko fighters.
“The issue of the girls is long forgotten because I have long ago married them off,” he said, laughing, according to a journalist who viewed the video. “In this war,” he said in Hausa, the local dialect, “there is no going back.”
He also ridiculed published reports of a secret meeting between Nigeria’s security forces and an envoy from Boko Haram named Danladi Ahmadu.
“We don’t know that liar and fake Danladi Ahmadu … We have nothing to do with him, and our war is not ending. Expect more … There is no retreat in this Jihad. Allah is with us, and we are succeeding.”
The plight of Nigeria’s women and girls has been detailed in a new report from Human Rights Watch published in London, which noted that Boko Haram has abducted more than 500 women and girls since 2009.
“A few weeks ago, all of us at Kechie’s Project were excited and extremely hopeful after hearing the news that the Nigerian military had agreed to a truce with Boko Haram that would lead to the release of the over 200 Nigerian girls abducted from the Chibok School,” said Nkechi Ogbodo, president Kechie’s Project, Inc. “Our organizations, along with others, have labored greatly to stay on the issue to ensure that our girls are not forgotten. However, today, we are heartbroken upon hearing the news that our girls have been married off, yet again dashing our hopes that we may ever see our girls.”
God sees me now. My heart is broken!! Dear god, spiritually save your daughters in jesus name amen 😥 give them the knowledge that a better life is waiting for them after Satan’s system vanishes. Dear god, give our sisters each other. Please make it that they are able to bond together, team together, work together and support each other just so they don’t feel alone against these vile men (animals). Dear god jehovah, I pray to you to make these girls love each other, confined each other, rely on one another to get through their day to day challenges.
The only few things left they have is you and each other against the terror they are surrounded by, father. I pray to you that you take these girls away to a safer place until the new system is put in place. Soothe the heart of our sisters’ parents with your presence. Soothe the mothers’ anguish by reminding them that this world we are living in is the devil’s world. It is the place all the pain they are going through is made to be as we are doomed to suffer on earth HOWEVER make the family of our sisters be aware that the end of this suffering shall come. That only the faithful and righteous shall triumph and you have already professed and arranged for them to be reunited with their loved ones. You already defeated the evil and wicked. You have already planned for these beautiful girls to have the better life they deserve. In your name we shall pray and reach out to jehovah my lord!! In jesus name, amen.
