As the nation marks its Children’s Day, it was with a mix filling as the Chibok abducted girls ware yet to regain their freedom from their abductors after 43 days in captivity.
To this end, the staff and students of Adams College took to the street in peaceful protest to demand that the girls should be released alive and well.
The Director of the school, Mr. Adams Bankole in his speech at the Oshodi/Isolo Local Government asked that the federal government should do all within its powers to ensure that the girls regained their freedom without much delay. He also condemned all forms of violence and act of terrorism within the country and that the national Security agencies should rise up to their primary responsibility of protecting lives and property of the citizenry.
Oyewunmi Emmanuel, a student of the Institute said that continuous holding of the girls in captivity has deprived them off their freedom of movement and association with friends and relatives. He further stated that the abduction has set the girls education back as they were denied the opportunity to finish their SSCE exams.
Danmilola Ayodele, a student of the same colleges pointed out that the act is a threat to all Nigerian children and if the girls are not released, no Nigerian child is safe anywhere in the country.
Some the massages in display during the rally reads ‘until we find them, we no go gree!’, ’stop wasting time, bring our sisters home’. Let’s hope that the girls will be released in no distant time.
