Cameroonian singer Dencia has take to Instagram to lend her voice to the campaign for the rescue of the over 200 girls kidnapped by Boko Haram insurgents over two weeks ago.
'Mother' Dencia Tells Women: Beg Boko Haram To Release Your Children, Forget Government
"Cry beg Boko Haram to release your Children" Dencia tells Nigerian women
"If Boko Haram kidnapped my child: 1. As a mother i will be on TV crying and begging them to release my child. nothing as heartbreaking as a mother's tears; 2. I will be in the bushes searching (maybe cuz anger makes me fearless); 3. my entire family will fearlessly follow me. "Military tactics haven't worked so far, change strategies," she posted via her Instagram account, iamdencia
After giving a damning assessment of efforts by the Nigerian Nigerian government, the Whitenicious brand owner challenged the mothers of the abducted children to be more proactive and use their powers as mothers to appeal to the abductors.
"Most women and mothers don't know the power they have. I don't know what they have done or have not done, but I believe you start doing the work and expect help," Dencia wrote.
As far as Dencia was concerned, waiting for the government would be unwise.
"So far for the government haven't done much and have lied about rescuing the girls before so dont expect much. after all there is no politician's child involved. Don't expect them to worry about it.
The singer also took time to rubbish the one-million-women protest march planned for Wednesday in Nigeria's capital, Abuja on Wednesday.
"I hear they want to hold a protest. SMH, I have seen all types of protest in Naija that never led to anything."
She then suggested that the women collectively beg the terrorists to release the children if nothing else worked.
"Can these women save the energy and time and figure out a plan or start recording some crying videos begging Boko Haram because its just killing me."
Many of Dencia's Instagram fans shared the same sentiment over the matter.
One of them, miz_goodie, wrote in reply to Dencia's post: "...By now, some are pregnant through rape, some having sexually transmitted diseases, maybe even aids...
"Women, mothers, take action already and forget about the government, they don't care one bit."
Do you think Dencia is right? Is the government really out of depth over this matter?
