BOKO HARAM: orphans of cultured learning
May these very sentiments of global brotherhood showered on Nigeria to #FreeChibokGirls be similarly replicated, universally, wherever the girl child is in thralls. And may the Hallowed Heavens resoundingly recompense every individual and nation that selflessly, strove to #BringBackOurGirls, who laboured to set free our beloved Chibok Children. Awesome indeed in spontaneity, is the international response to the heart-rending cry for assistance from all over Nigeria. It was a celebration of the refinement of the larger global society and definitive affirmation of the civilization of the human race!
There may never be a BETTER CONDEMNATION OF TERRORISM found anywhere in the world than the universal outburst of compassion for the abducted CHIBOK CHILDREN and their families, coupled with material and military assistance to the Federal Government of Nigeria. Beyond this, the worth of the girl child and revered status of woman in the human society, were unambiguously proclaimed. Not left out in emphasis is the thrust of the entire Boko Haram assault, WHICH IS WESTERN EDUCATION AND SPECIFICALLY, GIRL CHILD EDUCATION. If there should be legacy of any kind left by this vile effrontery upon a vital aspect of the civilized human race, the woman and her female child, let it be an increased concentration of efforts, towards the educational development of the girl child, and better accommodation for her mother, in the larger society.
On dispassionate examination of the Boko Harams' hatred of Western Education, one begins immediately, to see the devastating impact on them, of the independence and freedom that comes to the educated human. The educated and therefore enlightened youth, would no longer be easy to manipulate, and engrossed into the savage power clan of Boko Haram. Because education awakens fully, the human's intellectual faculty of reason, compelling him to subject every proposed line of action to thorough, reasonable consideration, little merit if any, would be found in the vicious affairs of the Boko Haram!
It is by the awakening of the human's Faculty of Reason that the Boko Haram find a mind-searing threat in Western Education. The phobia is real. But conversely, if the formal schools were all vandalized and crippled out of contention, Boko Haram would hold sway in its diabolical efforts to control the minds of the larger population of the youths. Vile and primitive policies and programmes would be forced down on the citizenry, and civilization as we have come to appreciate it, would cease to be. Unimaginable evil would most certainly descend upon all, making nonsense of all achievements, by which we presently claim civilization!
At present, the Boko Haram clan are small in size. They do not have a standing army and are incapable of commanding one. It is therefore, perfectly possible to throw a comprehensive pressure around them, enfolding them into a mixed grill of all-encompassing negotiation and crippling military action.
This GLOBAL RACE OF CIVILIZED HUMANS must rise with a single mind in tackling Boko Haram and all their likes, the world over. Let this be done primarily to save the GIRL CHILD IN EDUCATION, AND ENCOURAGE HER MOTHER TO REMAIN OUR MOTHER; CONCEIVING, GESTATING AND WEANING US INTO A GREATER CIVILIZATION, TO THE GLORIFICATION OF THE HALLOWED NAME OF THE ALMIGHTY DEITY!
