    The commital of the terror suspect to the High court has not happened by surprise to many of us.Terror suspects world wide faces the same fate, if they are caught. whether boko haram in nigeria,isis in syria or al shabab in somalia they are all instruments of terror and enemies of peace.Crime in any form does not pay.We Urge our youths not to fall prey to politicians with bloody money, who are hell bent to entice them to join some orgarnisations in secrecy.A genuine recruitment drive is done openly through a public media in accordance with laid down rules not in caves God forbid.Any form of recruitment has contractual obligations to both parties.The blood of innocent victims of terror, will continue haunt all terrorist until justice is duly served, they did not perish in vain.
