Problem-solving in Abuja

Nigeria is working hard to solve the problem of the enslaved schoolgirls kidnapped from Chibok in April. How? By banning protests in Abuja, that’s how.

Police in Nigeria’s capital have banned all protests planned in support of the more than 200 girls kidnapped in April.

Commissioner Joseph Mbu said the proliferation of such protests “is now posing a serious security threat” to those living around, and driving through, demonstration sites in the capital city of Abuja.

“I cannot fold my hands and watch this lawlessness,” he said in a statement Monday.

The lawlessness of protesting the failure to rescue the schoolgirls, he means. That’s his priority.

    How did he manage to unfold his hands long enough to sign the order?

    How sick.

    I hope international pressure is brought to bear and if possible this fouled up Nigerian regime is removed without bloodshed.

    I also hope protests still go ahead – and are peaceful and huge and effective – and the Nigerian regime is revealed as being as impotent at stopping them as it was at preventing the mass kidnapping and what followed as well.
