Reacting to shocked looks and queries by some of the passengers in the moving bus he had just jumped into, Chibuike Ibe, 9, simply said, "Even my junior brother dey sell for Cele," then proceeded to hawk his wares. The time was almost 10 pm, a time he should have been in school.
While young Chibuike would very likely not see the inside of a school willingly, some of his age-mates, who were in school had their lives snuffed out early on Saturday morning. At least 29 students died when Government Secondary School, Mamudo in Yobe state was attacked by people purporting to fight for Allah. I think I can (for once in my life), know that I am speaking the words of God when I say that all the attackers will burn in hell.
The Prez also shares my sentiments, but the difference between me and him is that he actually has the powers to weed out those attackers, and snuff them out. He could, in my not-so-humble-opinion, begin by firing the khaki in charge in Yobe, Col. Ibrahim Ali, who on the same day as the attacks said, "We have not had any major encounter except on June 16 when they attacked a school in Damaturu. We have pushed them out of town."
Meanwhile, all the kids in Yobe have been sent on compulsory holiday.

Finally, if you must move about in Naija by road, God is Good.
