Boko Haram, A true story, from one in the field

 I am sharing this from one of my younger ones who is a Reverend Father!

The Horror of BH! The Hollowness of these empty wretches who know of nothing else but how to kill, the sheer savagery of these brutes and the callousness of these blood thirsty hordes.
Pray for them and pray for the safety of people like Father Law who place themselves in harm’s way every day to preach the message of God, which is peace, love and justice!

Nna anyi ukwu,
Nice reading your articles and comments on the Boko Haram saga. They make very beautiful reading especially when one considers that you people are writing from your comfort zones and relying more on what is being said or written about the insurgency.
I stay in Maiduguri diocese since last year and am writing from there now. The real stories of the menace are hardly heard outside. We who live here feel d heat every second and know that you people do not get up to 40% of the real gist.
I leave about ten kilometres away from Mubi town and that is where we do our shopping, car repairs or health checks. I was there two days ago and the place was bombed last night.

Boko Haram were in my parish town here in Dec, burnt our local police station, killed everyone they could find around and shouted Allahu Akbar and sped off on their bikes. Our Junior seminary here was attacked recently and burnt down completely with the nearby parish and convent. Not in the news. Many of our parishes here are deserted and closed down. We priests are targeted and none of us sleeps up to three hours at night as we monitor every movement, even of lizards and rats.

It is nice to hear how these stories are reported from Abuja. Staying here reveals a different story all together. It is not just a good information machinery that the government needs, but a sincere effort followed by strong will. Right now what we have is Abuja describing a different issue from what we live and go through everyday. Its hot here.
Till I read from you. Feel free to share with your friends.

Fr Law

    Noel, I cannot ‘like’ this post because my heart is bleeding. I am not Nigerian and so cannot purport to mourn more than the bereaved. But certainly, Boko Haram is serious news for all of Africa. And for Pete’s sake Goodluck must wake up! This menace should have been curbed long ago before it got to this stage. The Rev. Fr. is right. The world has not heard half the news.
