Reflect Nigeria Tragic Fiction 5 – Prayer Of An Abducted Chibok And Now Dapchi Girl

I am weary of this horrendous and feigned existence that I am forced to live
And seek complete deliverance, like some of my comrades in chains before me,
Fortunate to be relieved eternally, from the atrocities of oppression that are
Conjoined with the degradation and unveiled brutality of sexual bondage,
Into the embrace of death, from this unbearable agony that ceases not.
For I understand, that it is a transition through redemption, to eternal peace.
Which is what I seek, like some of us, who have since had the tragic fortune
To escape, from this realm, like birds from the captor’s grip, but forever free.
That respite, is what I urgently need from the endless lashing of the torture,
From the shackles of despair, as all innocence is lost from these forsaken woods
Where neither normalcy nor joy nor hope abound, and evil reigns supreme.
I said my prayers silently, the prayers of my own faith, to remove me swiftly
And instantly, from this place, and for this, I now without patience await.

Reflect Nigeria – Abduction of Girls – Questions To Be Answered

When did the government know that the girls were kidnapped? Did the government know about the kidnapping 4 hours before the kidnapping occurred or after the girls had been kidnapped?

What was the action plan developed by the government to prevent the kidnapping if they were forewarned about the kidnapping?

What was the action plan developed by the government immediately after receiving news of the kidnapping? If an action plan was developed, when was it developed?

Why was there communication soon after the kidnapping conveying that the girls had been found?

When was the mission to rescue the girls activated by the government?

Did the government wait for the offer of assistance from other nations or immediately request assistance?

Did the gender of the kidnapped children play a role in the handling of the national calamity?

Are there men and women willing to resign in light of the handling of the national calamity?

Is the welfare of Nigerians important?

For the abducted girls, the inconsolable families and the distraught nation – somebody please answer these questions.

Confront The Scourge

Yet, we turn aside and ignore, the pervasive and awful signs,

Strewn amid the societal fabric, of the callous oppression

Of others in camouflage in plain sight as bullying . . .

In whatever form it rears its despicable countenance, whether within the

Seemingly innocent corridors of schools where children should carefree learn,

In the workplace where one seeks advancing livelihood in earnest regard,

On the roads, where errors in judgement cause volcanic eruptions of sometimes

Fatal rage, through the media where the appearance of some is so often

Mercilessly ridiculed with triviality . . .  be it for sex, gender, persuasion, height,

Skin colour, weight, ethnicity, accent or whatever poorly contrived excuse.

These acts, in essence are a blight on our community of civil humanity, for they,

Assume outright dastardly brutality, often with dire and desperate consequences.

Alas, ’tis  not sufficient to crouch in convenience in the shadow of

Feigned oblivion, nor with malcontent retreat, because the trajectory of the tirade

Or the constancy  of the atrocious acts  presently steer away from your course.

Nay, it is of utmost import to stand forcefully against it when encountered

And join in firm collaborative manner to rid from our existence, the scourge,

Be it as jocular jest or unadulterated abuse, for the absolute good of all.

Lest it, permeate the entirety of relations and none escape the clutches, and

All are consumed within the vortex and held forever hostage of its villainous intent.

Bullying is not a joke.
