The level of poverty in Nigeria is astronomically high. One can easily be carried away when you read of Nigerians, dotted all over the world making strides in various endeavours to want to believe that the level of education in Nigeria is high. The sad news is that, yes, Nigerians have a reputation for a high demand in academic qualifications, but the sad reality is that, in comparison to the large population of Nigeria, it will not be an exaggeration to assert Nigeria is one of the least educated countries in the world.
Take for instance, what is happening with the Boko Haram situation. The main crux of their agitation has to do with so called western education. These antagonists just do not want to be educated and they have succeeded in brain washing many who have now become followers, killers, murderers.
Take a look at the photograph above. These so-called-Boko Haram terrorists are underage. They have been brain-washed to believe they do not deserve to be educated. It’s an incredible dilemma to resolve.. Where do you begin ?
Ok. So they have been captured! So what happens next?
According to the article culled from Daily Post, the troops of 22 Brigade arrested these Boko Haram terrorists, suspected to be in charge of logistics at Dikwa.
Colonel Sani Kukasheka Usman, the Acting Director Army Public Relations, who confirmed the arrest in a statement, said “the patrol made contact with Boko Haram logistics elements, who specialised in using the 2 villages as base for food storage and other logistics, before moving them to Bama and then to Sambisa forest.
“In the encounter, 5 Boko Haram terrorists were arrested comprising 3 adults and 2 minors.
According to the report, the under aged male children were dressed in new Boko Haram uniforms (really? Which uniforms?).
The troops recovered 1 truck, 2 Golf cars painted in mud, 4 bicycles and 3 x 5kva power generating set, as well as 55 bags of corn.”
