I came across some good news this Sunday morning, by way of Africa News.
Over 300 Nigerian schoolboys were rescued and reunited with their parents in Katsina, Nigeria, after being seized in a mass abduction by Jihadist terrorist group Boko Haram. The boys were brought to the governor’s office, where they were received by President Muhammadu Buhari.
Although this was a joyous occasion for the returnees, concerns were raised for those still captured. United Nations chief Antonio Guterres urged Nigeria to safeguard schools and education facilities throughout the country.
One father of a rescued student, Illya Kabir, advised the following:
“I feel very happy to find my son in this episode that has happened. I am grateful to Almighty Allah that secured him out of everything.”
A mother of another student, Hajia Rukayat, continued with the following:
“We thank the governor, Aminu Bello Masari, may God bless him and the military as well as all the others that made it possible for the rescue of our boys.”
Stories like this make me happy and angry at the same time.
