POEM| #BringBackOurGirls By @PeterHaloway

Bring back our girls
We have waited too long
We have listened to your balderdash comments
And have endured immense impatience

Bring Back Our Girls
O! Nigeria, we cry unto thee
What haven’t we done?
From More Protests to More Letters and even many more petitions?

Like the thieve, they came
In camouflaged uniforms but in luxurious cars
To steal our future, our pride
To make mothers wail and to cry

Bring back our girls
Taken while having sweet nights in their hostels
To now become wives to syndicates
And forced to deny their religions

The Time has come, the 9th hour is here
We won’t sit and watch our future belittled
We will fight till the end,
Until this battle is won, We will never keep shut

Keep In-touch with us

Video released by boko haram claiming to “sell the girls” – Download

Earlier this morning I posted something similar, now have gotten the video. Let me break it down.

The leader of Boko Haram sect, Imam Abubakar Shekau,
released a video today in which he claimed responsibility for
abducting the Nigerian school girls, and said he will soak all
Nigerian soil with Christian blood, and Muslims opposing them,
whom he described as infidels.
The video lasts 56 minutes and 58 seconds, and shows Iman
Shekau speaking from a script, surrounded by heavily armed
fighters, backed by an armored personnel carrier, and two
other armed vehicles.
Iman Shekau said, “I am the one that took your girls. Are you the
one that created the girls? I will sell them in the market. I have
my own market of selling human beings. It is Allah, the owner
that instructed me to sell. I will sell the girls.”
And he added, “It is Allah that instructed us, until we soak the
ground of Nigeria with Christian blood and so called Muslims
contradicting Islam. After we have killed, killed, killed, and get
fatigue and wondering on what to do with smelling of their
corpses, smelling of Obama, Bush and Jonathan worried us
then we will open prison and be imprisoned the rest. Infidels
have no value.”
234 Nigerian schoolgirls, aged between 15-18, were abducted
from a remote school in Chibok village, Borno State, in
Northeast Nigeria on April 15. The girls and young women came
from schools in Izge, Lassa, Ashigashiya and Warabe to do
final exams because other the schools were shut in Borno
state because of attacks by Boko Haram.
Iman Shekau said the sects friends are those in Afghanistan,
Mali, Yemen and Pakistan, and not those Arabs who just
bragged with their colors but deal with Americans and the
West. Shekau said there is slavery in Islam, contrary to his
critics, noting that Prophet Muhammed took slaves during Badr
war in Hejaz region of western Arabia in present day Saudi
Shekau said, “Just because I took girls in Western school they
are worried. I say they (the girls) should desert the school.
They should go and marry. Stupid people. Talking about human
rights and democracy. Nonsense. People that are doing same
sex marriage and saying they are leaders.”
And he added, “I will imprison Jonathan’s daughter, any one
that turn to Islam will be saved. For me anyone that embraces
Islam is my own. Stupid Jonathan, you will be surprise. Until the
land is soaked with blood.”
Later he said, “This is a war against Christians and democracy
and their constitution, we have not started, we will be in
Abuja, and in your state. This war is against Christians, I mean
Christians, generally the infidels. Allah says we should finish
them when we get them.”
Shekau boasted in the video that he has no business with
infidel’s money, “I have no time with your trillion. I am working
for Allah and will die for it. No one can stop me. You killed
Mohammed Yusuf. Are you not saying he is even better than
Shekau? Even if you kill me, other fighters will rise better than
me, I am nothing and worthless before Allah who I am working
for. You are sitting with Christians and saying we are one,
saying there is no difference. We are not one with infidels.”
Later he said, “It is a lie, in fact you suppose to wash and re-
wash a plate Christian eats food before you eat as Muslims.
You know all these things and you are contradicting Islam. Are
Christians the people we should play with? They killed us in
Shendam, Zangon Katab and all the places. It is either you are
with us or you are with them, and when we see you, we will
harvest your neck with knife.”
He cursed Islamic political leaders the late Malam Aminu Kano,
Abubakar Tafawa Balewa, and Islamic scholar, Usman Dan
Fodio as infidels for working and accepting democracy and
constitution, and added, “We are not ignorant of all that
The mass abduction three weeks ago, and the Nigerian
military’s failure to rescue the girls and young women, has
roused national and international outrage with protests in
major cities in Nigeria, and across the world.
A number of girls have escaped who said their captors
identified themselves as Boko Haram.
Nigerian Police Commissioner, Tanko Lawan told reporters the
number of escaped girls is 53.

Boko Haram Leader Says He Will ‘Sell’ Abducted Nigerian Schoolgirls In Chilling Video

It is three weeks since the girls were
abducted and Boko Haram has
threatened to 'sell' them

It is three weeks since the girls were
abducted and Boko Haram has
threatened to ‘sell’ them

Boko Haram will “sell your girls in the market”,
the terrorist leader has vowed in a chilling video
message to parents of the kidnapped Nigerian
school girls
Abubakar Shekau, the leader of the Nigerian
Islamist group Boko Haram notorious for targeting schools,
claimed responsibility for the abduction of
hundreds of girls aged 16 to 18 from their
Borno state school in a video message released
by Agence France Press.

“I abducted your girls. I will sell them in the
market, by Allah,” Shekau said, according to the
news agency’s translation. “We are holding
people [as] slaves.”
The girls should be married, not in school, he
continued, according to the BBC.
“God instructed me to sell them, they are his
properties and I will carry out his instructions.”
Authorities searching for the missing girls say
dozens have escaped from their captors but
276 are still missing. They were taken three
weeks ago from their school in Chibok.
Last week, senior community leader Dr Pogu
Bitrus told Channel 4 News that he believed
many of the girls, who were mainly Christian,
were compelled to convert to Islam and
“forcibly married off with a bride price of just
2,000 Naira [less than £10].” He did not cite
his sources.
But a different source, involved in the hostage
negotiations, told Channel 4 News that he
believes the girls will be returned safely for a
ransom. “It would not be hard to engineer a deal.
It looks like they want to release them,” he said.
As anger swells in Nigeria over the handling of
the case, and protest marches take place
across the nation, police arrested the leader of
a group that called on authorities to do more to
find the kidnapped girls.
Reuters reported that Naomi Mutah Nyadar had
been detained, suspected of falsely claiming
that one of the abducted girls was her
But local reports suggest the arrest was
connected with a meeting with Nigeria’s First
Lady Patience Jonathan, who had felt slighted
that the mothers of the girls did not come to
meet her, and were instead represented by
Mutah Nyadar, who is from the girls’ local Chibok
AP quoted community leader, Saratu Angus
Ndirpaya, as saying that Jonathan accused the
activists of fabricating the abductions in order
to smear her husband’s government.
