they stole our day

It was a sad… sad day in Adamawa state when the children where told that their usual Children’s day celebrations had been cancelled due to the state of emergency declared in the State.

Over a hundred children, who showed up at the Ribadu square in Yola for their usual day of fun and merry making, broke down and wept openly when they were told to go back home. This announcement was made by the minister for women affairs and it underlines just how far reaching the effects of the security menace is.

The absolute worst a person can do is ‘taking candy from a baby’… Stealing a day from kids is a close second and that’s exactly what terrorism has done.
