Ahoy! Where are the Chibok boys of Igbonla?
By Samuel Ibemere…
Yes, it’s been 37 days, 17 days short of the 54 days President Buhari has been in Oyinbo country, with his official aircraft sleeping idly by the door-step and accruing millions of Naira in tax payers money. Sadly, the heroes of Igbonla will have no sophisticated machines waiting to take them home after a most traumatic experience in the cursed bosom of some wild human beasts. Their return trip, if they come out alive, could be a rough journey in a wooden raft driven by red-eyed idiots from hell.
Nigeria, led by the governor of Lagos State, Akinwunmi Ambode, must ensure that the six boys stolen from the Igbonla cradle return to the safe arms of their parents. Their abductors must also be apprehended, prosecuted and punished.
The merry-making over Evans must cease now!

Indeed they are the Chibok boys! Despite all accolades that Lagos state security system is better than other state of Nigeria, the kidnappers shocked them and it’s taking them almost two months and still counting to get a clue about the kidnappers and whereabouts of the victims. Sad!

With all the trust and believe I have in Lagos state’s security, this has left me dumbfounded. What went wrong? How did the police lose their track? Is there any concrete rescue mission yet? Although, a part of me still believes in the competent of Lagos State, the boys will return safely

Mr Man, if there was concrete plan to rescue the boys, by now everyone would have known. Nigerian police will always be Nigeria police, full of disappointments! I’d rather advise the parents to raise the ransom and pay for their children’s lives, if they continue to wait for the government, this may turnout to be another “Chibok Kidnap”. We are still counting weeks, which are fast turning into months, I hope this won’t take years!

Ambode can’t be blamed on this matter. They just have to take caution if they must get back those six abductees alive. Let’s pray for the security operatives to be able to arrest the people and release the children unscathed

So for many years or days will it take them to get the children release? What caution are they taking?
July 3, 2017 at 2:30 am
They will get them released soon.

Am sure, Evans, the notorious kidnapper kingpin will be aware of this kidnap, he will be the one to help the police track down these criminals
