It is no longer new news that and their parents are devastated as the of the is no longer guaranteed and has incessantly been breached to the extent that () are being victimised by their abductors who fearlessly hold them captives.

It is very frustrating that some public schools (boarding) have been closed as announced by the governments in some states of the federation.

The decision is honestly heart-breaking as it is an indication that the can no longer repel or foil attacks carried out by various types of terrorists, despite the that Nigeria has been recognised as one of the African countries with the strongest military might.
