No word can describe our grief –Parents of teenagers crushed to death by NSCDC official in Gombe on Easter Monday
If tears could bring back the dead, in Gombe, at least 10 teenagers would be back on their feet today. Since April 22, 2019 – Easter Monday – when they were crushed to death during a 12:00 religious procession by a murderous official of the Nigerian Security and Civil Defence Corps – Adamu Abubakar fondly known as Ushaka – in the Sabo Line area of the capital, their distraught parents and all those, who knew them closely have been drenched with tears. They have cried, prayed and constantly hoped for a miracle. But sadly, the victims are gone forever.
For example, the home of Mr Danjuma Paul, father of one of the teenagers killed – Joseph – has become a confluence of tears since Monday’s tragedy. Men, women and children could all be seen grieving at the place when one of our correspondents visited. According to family members, Paul was a promising boy whose rich ideas gave them hope for the future.
“He was a Junior Secondary School Two pupil of Universal Secondary School and dreamt of becoming a medical doctor when his life was cut short,” Paul’s distraught father said. “It was his younger brother who came to inform me and his mother that Paul had been hit by a vehicle. “We rushed down to the scene and saw the heartbreaking damage that had been done to the young boys and girls including my son.
Tears could not stop flowing down our cheeks. “The man who killed them threatened to cause them pains and he did that. In fact, he made attempts to clear more people and escape but his car got stuck as a result of the crushed bodies on the ground.
