Nigerian Children Have Become the Worst Victims of Terror

Nigerian children have become the worst victims of terror in every region in the country.
Boko Haram terrorists have attacked, kidnapped and murdered hundreds of them in the north; kidnappers have kidnapped many of them in the south and scores have been raped.

Girls as young as 10 years have been used as suicide bombers by Boko Haram.
A 9 year old  girl was kidnapped and raped to death last week in the south east.
An 8 year old girl was raped to death in a toilet in her school during school hours!
More than 6 million girls from poor families are  out of school.
Defenseless, helpless and powerless girls have become preys of predators on the prowl in Nigeria and we are going on with our respective lives without raising any alarm over this state of emergency.

The President of Nigeria, the Ministers, Law makers, State Governors, Commissioners, Heads of Local Government Areas, Bishops, Pastors, Imams and other authorities have not responded to this emergency of the daily attacks on our innocent helpless children God has given us!
No child asked to be born poor to suffer in horrible living conditions, become unfortunate victims of domestic violence and political conflicts. 
We asked for them for procreation, but we have failed to guaranty their safety and welfare.

The rich don't care about the children of the poor. The best they can do is to use them as housemaids and house boys and in most cases deprive them of going to school and prevent them from the realization of their dreams to fulfill their destinies. And we say we are true Christians and Muslims and Patriots?
How can we develop our nation when we fail to secure the future of our children who will succeed and survive us?  
This is a state of emergency and we must all join hands to rescue and save the most threatened children in Nigeria from poverty and political crisis.
