Catholic Women Gun for Sambisa By Justine Dyikuk

The Zumuntan Mata Katolika (Catholic Women Organisation, Hausa session) of Jalingo Diocese have dared time and circumstances to identify with the parents of the 276 girls of Government Secondary School, Chibok who were abducted from their school dormitory by suspected Boko Haram Islamists on the night of April 14, 2014 in a drama they staged recently.
The women who demonstrated the rescue of the kidnapped girls in a drama as a way of reminding the government to expedite action in reuniting the girls with their families, thrilled the faithful at the Immaculate Conception Secondary School, Bauchi, Bauchi State where they met for their 17th Jos Provincial Conference from April 15 – 17, 2016.
The women who were dressed in khaki sought permission to go to Sambisa forest to rescue the Chibok Girls. Upon getting permission, they swung into action. In no time, the mothers came back with two of the girls amidst drumming and cheers from the crowds. The drama left the public with the lesson that the Chibok girls are not forgotten.
High points of events at the convention were bible quiz competition, singing completion and a lead talk by Fr. Justine Dyikuk on the theme: “Kauna da aikatawa” – love in action.
The priest who called the women to be more pragmatic in their application of Christianity urged them to show love and concern to vulnerable women and children especially widows and orphans.
“Your love must have eyes, legs and hands and also touch lives in a manner that it will bring more women to your group” Dyikuk said.
