BLOODY WEDNESDAY IN NIGERIA
Hello Nigeria, it was indeed a sad day for our country Nigeria as series of attacks were carried out by the wicked ones against innocent citizens. This was very unusual because it happened in several states in a single day. The sad day started with the news that over 123 were feared killed in an onslaught on some villages in Sanga Local Government Area of Kaduna state by Fulani herdsmen. We were like; ok this is ‘every week news’ in Nigeria and everyone was eager waiting for 5pm to come so that we would watch our super eagles take on Argentina when we got another news of a bomb attack at a very busy shopping plaza in the federal capital territory, Abuja killing 27 and injuring several others. Before we could even get details of the bomb blast in Abuja, another bomb blast was reported at a crowded market in Mubi town, Adamawa state killing one person and injuring three others.
Our blood went cold and our hearts broken as Argentina ran away with a 3-2 victory over our eagles. That was not even all, we heard about an explosion at a gas plant in Lagos causing more fears in our already frightened hearts. In response it was reported that President Goodluck Jonathan concealed his A.U summit trip to come back and attend to this security challenges. But sadly enough, that was not enough to stop the boko haram insurgents from attacking and killing 16 soldiers at a military check point in Borno state.
That was how the Wednesday turned out to be a bloody one. But then I ask myself, where do we go from here?
