Mallam Mukthar is a schoolteacher who sacrificed his life for his students in Federal government College Birnin Yauri, kebbi state.
He is the teacher that took himself to the bandits stating that the bandits should either release his students or take him along with his students which the bandits did.
He has been released with his students after spending days with their captors.
I hope when a book about courageous people in Nigeria is written one day, no doubt the name of Mallam Mukhtar Gulma will be given a mention with esteem and gratitude.
He is worthy of emulation any day, any time, and anywhere in the world.
He did what the toughest people in history cannot do.
Only men of courage and faith can boldly do what he did.
Mallam Mukthar Gulma’s rare courage need to go viral in all our media outfits. It is a lesson of sacrifice to be taught to our children and coming generations.
Mallam Mukthar is a hero of our time!
