  1. That’s Good approach to the issue and we prayed for Allah SWT to give our Security personnel Strength and protection in discharging their duties. We also hope that it will not take too much time in rescuing these girls from the hands of the So called Islamic Terrorists. Qick and effective measures are what the citizens of this great Nation needed in order to avoid the repeat of 2014 Chibok Girls abduction which brought I’ll and negative consequences to the nation stability all as result of their(Girls) long captivity in the hands of the insurgents.
    Longlive Nigerians
