    What the fu@k is the problem with the northerners with targeting school girls, this is an act of cowardice by the men. They all like to dominate their women, they are bunch of lazy as*holes, who don’t wanna learn, so they don’t want their woman to get education.
    Instead of the government promoting the culture that enslave woman alone #Sharia, they should create programs that will educate them on the benefits of woman education
