48 days after, they are still in captivity

Reading Time: < 1 minute

The last few days have been incredibly tough in Nigeria with the security situation nothing but worsening.

I have seen yet another video of the remaining students of the college of Forestry Mechanization, Kaduna still in captivity, with no adequate food, water or shelter. They are having to sleep under the rain and shine.

This is me standing right opposite the government house prepping for an update when we visited. We thought they would be out by then.

48 days after we are still here having this conversation and they are still in captivity.

I have received so many calls from parents lately asking what do I know? when will their children return to them? Will they return?

Lord, I do not have the answers. I do not know. I really don’t. I can only imagine how helpless these parents are.

It is a tough one to handle.
