If Leah Sharibu Was Zahra Buhari, Would She Nonetheless Be In Captivity? By Fredrick Nwabufo
A person, with bloodied “babariga” and with head cocked down, perched emotionlessly within the driver’s seat of a Land Cruiser jeep at Kurmin Kare village alongside Kaduna-Abuja categorical method within the searing afternoon of April 29. He was the driving force of Mohammed Abubakar, chairman of the Common Primary Education Fee (UBEC). He was anonymous, and he suffered essentially the most horrible destiny. He was the primary casualty of the abductors, who kidnapped his employer and daughter.
However Abubakar and his daughter regained freedom lower than 24 hours after their abduction. Although they’d paid a heavy ransom to safe their lives. The police had additionally launched a manhunt for the abductors instantly, arresting one suspect a day after. With that incident, I feel, the each day tragedy on Kaduna-Abuja categorical method hit house; it turned uncomfortably apparent for the elite going by the frantic efforts that adopted after.
Actually, with the elite, there may be all the time a way of urgency when their safety, cash or energy is threatened. It’s the purpose the areas the place they cluster are far more safe than the place the proletariat inhabit. A safety incident in Asokoro or Ikoyi will ordinarily obtain more consideration than any incident of the identical magnitude in Mararaba or Iyana Ipaja. I imagine, that is “apartheid”; a deep social inequity that accents the reluctance and lethargy of the authorities on issues affecting the widespread folks.
And I feel the believable purpose there is no such thing as a sense of urgency within the rescue of Leah Sharibu is she comes from the incorrect social divide. In April 2018, Leah despatched out a message of despair; a determined name for assist. She stated: “I’m Leah Sharibu, the lady that was kidnapped in GGSS Dapchi. I’m calling on the federal government and other people of goodwill to intervene to get me out of my present scenario.”
“I additionally plead to the members of the general public to assist my mom, father, my youthful brother and relations. Kindly assist me out of my predicament. I’m begging you to deal with me with compassion. I’m calling on the federal government, notably the president to pity me and get me out of this critical scenario.”
This message nonetheless crucifies the person in me. And 12 months have handed, however Leah continues to be within the pit of vipers. How does the president sleep at evening understanding that this younger lady huddles within the encampment of the second most harmful terror group on the planet? How do the service chiefs even keep on in silence, with no phrase on the rescue effort for this Daniel?
And he or she particularly talked about the president, asking him to “pity” her. I wish to think about Leah because the president’s daughter sending out this pathos-inducing message, what would the president have executed? Would he not have utilized his energy because the commander-in-chief and deploy each contact and assets till she is rescued? I’m constructive she wouldn’t have spent two years in captivity.
Leah is in captivity due to her religion. This makes it more tragic. And the shortage of a way of urgency in her rescue additionally raises recommendations that border on her religion.
And would she nonetheless be in captivity if she was Zahra Buhari? I don’t suppose so.
