VIRGINS FOR SALE IN MAIDUGURI (#BringBackOurGirls)

VIRGINS FOR SALE IN MAIGUGURI (#BringBackOurGirls)

VIRGINS FOR SALE IN MAIDUGURI (#BringBackOurGirls)

At night thieves stole our pretty ones! Faceless cowards with spitting guns … Government is looking, parents weeping Army is shooting, the people hoping Young girls groan in Sambisa den Locked by beasts in goat pens Lost in ignorance they steal our women And – proudly, they claim to be men Now, seeking knowledge is a taboo To the wise they give a boo(m)! Come buy a wife, it’ll cost you nothing He who finds a wife finds a good thing Virgins on sale! Interested? Hurry! I wait for you in dusty Maiduguri! It’s almost three weeks now and each day that passes chips at our hope, as we pray that our young girls kidnapped from Government Girls Secondary School, Chibok, Borno state are found. Many people have lost faith in the government- our leaders, but for a few, seem to be unperturbed and our security forces seem to be perplexed. Now, the abductors have threatened to sell the girls, young innocent teenagers, sold into marriage or slavery! Boko Haram leader, Abubakar Shekau, says he will sell them “like goods in the market.” Will we just sit back and look?
