ADAEZE AKUEGBU: THE YOLA BOMB BLAST #MYTHOUGHTSSPOKENOUTLOUD

 

PRAY FOR NIGERIA, PRAY FOR THE WORLD

In my opinion, the prevalent poverty rate in Nigeria invariably contributes to the BOKO HARAM menace.

If a person was gainfully employed and had a comfortable life with the basic amenities needed to survive in today’s world, chances are that he would think twice about suicide bombing. This only lends credence to the saying that, “AN IDLE MIND IS THE WORKSHOP OF THE DEVIL”.

To think that what was used to attract the crowd that fell victim to the Yola blast on Tuesday 17th of November 2015 was the distribution of money is extremely sad.

If the children had been well catered for maybe, just maybe, they wouldn’t have fallen prey. The future of the nation rests on these young ones. We cannot afford more mindless killings in this nation.

#mythoughtsspokenoutloud. The question in my mind is, What if?

However we cannot cry over spilled milk, we can only prevent the next bottle from toppling over.

  1. I quite disagree with these ideas of poverty being responsible for these bombings. Usama Bin Ladin was poor? The Frenchmen being held currently by Cameroon are poor guys? The British born who masterminded and co-ordinated one of the recent bombings is one poor church rat? The billions being pumped into these terrorist acts are proceeds of poverty? Or will it increase poverty if properly invested? Will the people being financed to die be poorer if they are financed to be productive? If you can sincerely answer these questions, you will understand that these things are “a philosophy” which neither hinges on wealth nor poverty. The devil is on rampage for the end time and must send as many as he can to hell before they realise there is a way out for them. Do you know that some people feel fulfilled only when the flames of these bombs ascend to the skies? Do you know some very rich/wealthy people/nations are involved in these acts? Or is it happening only in Nigeria? We need to seriously pray, properly and in the right direction and to the right source for divine intervention.

    1. There is no doubt that every problem has different sides to it. Neither can we say that the people who commit these atrocities lack funds and funding. The spiritual also cannot be denied as it controls the physical. Thus, I appreciate your profound thoughts. What I have tried to say here is that poverty is a contributing factor from the angle of both the victims and the assailant. Several factors have caused people to take up suicide bombing and several factors make people fall prey. For the particular incident of Tuesday the 17th, my opinion is that poverty is one of them.
