The Shamima Begum Case: A lesson for the Nigerian Youths

The Shamima Begum Case: A lesson for the Nigerian Youths

Four years ago, 15 years old British Shamima Begun had ran off to marry an ISIS fighter which resulted in a lot of controversy. The 19 year old who recently gave birth to a son whom she named Jerah after the 7th century Islamic warlord is pleading to return to Britain and willing to go to prison if her request is granted. The decision to return from Syria was based on the collapse of the terror group and poor conditions in the region. According to British newspaper Daily mail Shamima has apologized but she is still seen as a big threat to Britain.

The Manchester attacks in 2017 by the terror group that left 22 people dead is still fresh in the minds of the residents and her plea for a return has sparked a lot of controversy. A lot of people see it as absurd for her to ask for a return after the atrocities caused by the terror group. Some quarters want the baby taken from her while is left to suffer in Syria.

The story of Shamima’s present predicament is a lesson for the Nigerian youths who have thrown caution to the wind.  There are so many young people who have followed the wrong paths because of some ideologies that have shown to be the best at that point in time. The saying “All that glitters is not gold” has been disregarded by a lot of young people in this country.

The zeal to chase after wealth at a very young age is fast destroying the youths. A lot of youths have forced themselves into dungeons of bondage because of the destructive vices they have got themselves entangled with. Money making rituals such as pants hunters and internet frauds also known as “Yahoo Yahoo” is the order of the day for the Nigerian youths. A lot of parents have looked the other side as long as there is money.

Parents are meant to be our role models but not any more in Nigeria as so many parents are so busy that they have left the training of their children to house helps and the society. Train up the child the way he or she should go but that is a saying for the gods. No more morals for the kids of this generation.

Shamima Begum never saw the future. At the age of 15, she did not understand what life was all about so grabbed the opportunity of the glittering presentation in front of her. It is on that decision she had made that ended up in putting her in a tight corner. Her wrong understanding and interpretation of the available choices as well as her religion at the time she took them is what is threatening the life of her new-born son.

We have heard and even saw videos of young men eating faeces; going to a location in Badagry to suck the breast of a woman in her 80s and subjected to do bizarre and gruesome activities all because of the wrong decisions they made. Some have gone so deep that retreat has become impossible.

Life is a stage by stage process. Every child must first learn to crawl, walk before running and not the other way round. Don’t go the Shamima Begum path and then be in a very difficult situation that will lead to regrets.
