Road to Chibok

The Bring Back Our Girls group, BBOG, has released the names of individuals who were killed and those injured during Wednesday’s suicide bomb attacks in Chibok, Borno State.

Two suicide bombers suspected, to be female, on January 27 detonated their explosive devices at the main market, as well as at a military check point in Chibok town.

Chibok is the town where over 200 teenage girls were kidnapped from their school dormitory over a year ago by the Boko Haram.

The BBOG has since been engaged in creating awareness and seeking for the return of the girls from their captives.
The group in a statement by its spokesperson, Sesugh Akume, on Sunday said 15 people were killed, while 49 others were injured in the January 27 attacks.

The movement also said one soldier is among the dead victims.

“Our sources in Chibok have relayed the names and identities of all the victims: 15 deaths (including that of soldier of the Nigerian army). Some died on the spot, others eventually; and 49 injured, some at critical stages,” the group said.

“Two of the victims of the attacks are cousins of Aishatu Musa, one our 219 missing Chibok girls. Both are daughters of Mutah Adamu Ntikawar. One died on the spot, the other is in a critical condition presently.”

    Where do we go from here? God, have we sinned so much to deserve this harsh judgement from you? Where is the change APC promised? Are they still blaming GEJ? God have mercy on His children. Where are the Chibok girls? May the souls of the departed rest in peace. The only offence these dead victims committed were to be born in Nigeria.

      Of course GEJ is to blame. If he had not stolen all the money meant to arm our soldiers this would not have happened.
      This is the message from APC central [min of information] that needs to be repeated over and over again each time Boko Haram slaughters our citizens or captures a town or invades Abuja. Jonathan is to blame. It is a classic technique by propagandists. Repeat it often enough and it will become conventional wisdom. That’s why Lai has a 39 billion naira budget.

        President Buhari told us that Bokon harram is defeated technically, Yet Bokon harram still posses capacity to make IEDs, launch attacks,bomb markets & schools with all IDPs still in camps with no known date to return home.
        President Buhari has given Nigerian armed forces all the war equipment they were not given during GEJ government, 100 or 85 Nigerians were killed last week end at Dolari and 15 were killed in chibok with hundreds injured. Who is lying now? GEJ or Buhari?.

        One thing that would have prove GEJ’s ineptitude is practical defeat of Bokon harram not technical defeat in December 2015, that failure proved all the claims against GEJ as political mudslinging.

        Lets learn to accept good works of those that fall from grace, Seat of grace is not meant to be occupied for too long. If President Buhari a retired General has failed to defeat Bokon Harram in the presence of all supports, then Bloody civilian GEJ did marvelously well.

      The eradication of insurgents in the NE is a process that has come to an end and I do not expect any sensible Nigerian to play politics with the event or make a caricature of it. In the fir instance, is it God’s punishment to mankind? Absolutely not!! It is rather the result of man’s stupidity that has befallen fellow men. Is GEJ to be blamed for these events? Without any doubts, he and every other person or persons in leadership that had direct charge of the NE and the nation during the last 16 years, 8 months (including Buhari) should be blamed. Why? Simply because they all watched Obasanjo trample on our collective rights as citizens by imposing Umaru Musa Yaradu’a and Goodluck Ebele Jonathan on the nation and not Buba Marwa and Donald Duke or Buhari an Okadigbo. In my opinion, the combination of UMY and GEJ epitomised the height of mediocrity and indirection in Nigeria’s leadership. A leader with Muhammadu Buhari or Donald Duke’s bravery and commitment to a cause (i.e. anti corruption or commercialised development), would have steered the nation away from what we face today. While, I do not think that Buhari is a messiah in any form, I am justified to perceive him as an honest leader who works 40% more than he talks. Does a country wakes up one morning and decides to sign international treaties without months of studies and evaluation, or does a country fight an asymmetric war inconjunction with her once estranged neighbours without serious planning and repairs of the damaged relationship. Does a country continue to provide the same amenities to her people, through utilising a revenue pool of $28/bbl, at the same efficiency level or more with when the revenue stream was 40% more. At least I was priviledged to witness the last 8 years, 8 months and if you do not regard me as privileged in this regard, then I will appreciate if you are able to outline what Goodluck and Yaradu’a did better than what we have seen over the last 8 months. Lastly, being a victim of any casualty is not a price a person pays for an offence because the situation is an unfortunate encounter that often defies logic. May their soul rest in peace, amen..

    technically…this did not happen…i blame tompolo…

    I suppose it is Boko Haram’s own way of reminding us of the missing girls who everybody now wants to forget.

  • otunne steve gofrey

    When will technical defeat turn to practical defeat? Lets stop deceiving Nigerians. Bokon harram action negates every claims of victory. They still have capacity – no solution is close yet. Let stop stop lying politics and fact fact.
    NA is trying but they are not far from where GEJ left the war.
