ideas is on its way to bring you more conservation. how do we make see the screen. how can we protect our talents. we can make a difference. good morning to us environmental series in 2002 w. dawn. this is day to day news africa on the program today. nigeria's kidnapped boys they've returned home telling tales of hunger and peace but just how good a grain skewed and was a ransom paid. and the abandoned cost rooms in and your phone camera routed the rebels fighting forces station have forced the closure of schools in the region denying children their education.
12:17 am
hello i'm christine one but it's good to have your company hundreds of schoolboys seized by kidnappers in northwest nigeria have arrived home the boys were rescued on 6 days off to they were abducted from their school in katsina states one of them say that the captain is described themselves as. had regularly beaten them with canes and only gave them food once a day at the also talked of their ordeal and how they were happy to be free. they hit us all in the same place at 1st but when they saw a fighter jet they changed the location and hit us in a different place they gave us food but it was very little. i have. and. did my duty my my. my my do you know. but many details surrounding the incident remain unclear main be how the release
12:18 am
was secured shortly after news of the boys being rescued broke the government off at sea in the state. told al correspondent that no ransom had been paid to the kidnappers. you know we're. going to. we're. going to sure there were no. wonder. we're going to going to do under. one thing i don't. need to be coming down. and the like you know some of them that are
12:19 am
going to talk you know the region around because. she. should americans. a lot of joins me now tom has reported extensively on security in africa so i see a toe maybe of justice into the gulf and often seen a state say that the old boys he's didn't pay a ransom to the kidnapping so just how were the boys rescued. christine the government obviously would be it would be wary of using their own sons because that empowers militant groups so in this particular case the authorities or the officials are talking about haven't used repentant bandits that's in their words and also
12:20 am
a group known as me that's an association of cattle breeders notorious or at least accused of being behind the violence and killings in many parts of the country and they're saying this is the group that was used to get in touch with the abductors and wield influence over them to be able to get the boys back and this group obviously would be using that in its own way to gain prominence and again to be seen as a kind of the to be used in terms of growing its political importance in the country as well right boko haram claimed responsibility for the kidnapping of these boys how credible do you think that claim is. well i mean it appears a you know when book around released a statement it did this to through a voice message but when we saw videos of the boys the men book around players were not in that video so it appears as of this was i have a cell of book around operating in that part of the country or
12:21 am
a group that you know just opera a militant group that operates there and was hoping to possibly sell these boys on to boko haram for money but it does not appear as if the book around the coke around had control over these boys and and so was not able to wield to hold them on for longer. right tell me what we are talking about something that's happened. since the chipboard incident and still today we can report that only half of that your bottles have been found or freed at this as we know were married off to 5 says while the rest really seemed to be dead so why is the outcome in this case so different. well there are 2 things i'll point out the 1st is that the chibok girls case when the girls were taken the government at the time heard the news and thought it was a hoax and thought it was an opposition ploy the opposition made this up to to to
12:22 am
discredit the government and so they delayed in their response and by the time they eventually responded it was too late and the girls have been moved to different places and split up in this particular case there was a faster reaction but here comes the 2nd point which is geographical in that the chibok to block the town is in the north east where book around for a long time controlled territory this particular incident happened further west the northwest north central of the part of the country which is not book around territory so it's harder for a group to hold this group of boys this group of students longer and it's not as hard to retrieve them and identify where they are as it was in the boko in the in the chibok case so i think that's the difference in this particular case but also we have to see that there was a much i mean more muscly there wasn't a much faster reaction the news got out quicker got to the president quick and
12:23 am
there was in the closet meant that there was a problem to be addressed in mediately but the fact that this happened regardless the fact that a large group of boys can be kidnapped in the country should be worrying for the government as as everybody around the world who heard this story would have been would have been expressing as well all right the state of his tomi oladipo thanks to me as if. you. children and schools in cameroon english speaking region have become common targets of the separatists fighting for secession the separatists say the government in one day has been addicted to the and the phone region in the majority french speaking country and they've now declared their own state. crease reports they have attacked schools to pressure the government. 4 years ago residents of the predominantly english speaking with cameroon protested peacefully against the perceived need elect of the central government which reacted violently since then
12:24 am
civil war has broken out separatists fighting forces session and their own state. to pressure the regime they are forcing schools to close in november the school was attacked and set on fire shortly before 7 children in another school in that. in the meantime some schools have opened again with lessons taught using the under military protection one boy tells us he is scared of being kidnapped by separatists . in front of one of the schools and that the moment it's morning and you can see many of the students are arriving without school uniforms and they're coming here in front of the entrance to change to wear them because they're afraid of wearing the uniforms on their way to school we travel further into the countryside where many schools are still closed like here in the village shop but there's a glimmer of hope. that they. should
12:25 am
look at least a really has built a youth center where teenagers learn a trade and children are given and i turn to church school program 3 times a week. there's. the scene. the scene. in the very responsible we. use the 11 to provide to. the life was this minute because it's just so you can do anything with it because there's nobody for it so the center of this is really because i think we're really making a difference in september the village school was set to reopen but separatists have driven away the teachers. this is one of the classrooms looks from inside the benches are destroyed you can still see parts of books scattered around on the grounds the school has been closed for 4 years now and we were told residents here that it was the separatist fighters who came here to destroy everything they took
12:26 am
some of the benches hours to set up barricades on the roads the school symbolizes a lot for the community that us bias for development and growth and it tells a story that he shows how. out of reality yeah it is like nobody really cares it's painful it's. he can't even express it. beyond the physical structure of. the human structure is destroyed how does it come to that is beautiful job is to go to school or to turn never learned priest already once the children here to be finally able to live a normal life but for 4 years he says the government's nor separatists have been ready to enter a serious dialogue. there are more chases in the media than anywhere else in the world but even their chief says all still highly endangered
12:27 am
one threat comes from ranches who kill the chief says when they prey on their cattle but now i'm going to be as far as can keep a castle out of harm's way thanks to scientists studying the cats a rare sighting of wild cheetahs and namibia and the country has the biggest free ranging population of cheatings in africa but the big cats here as elsewhere on the continent are highly endangered. i. knew the population is threatens because it doesn't occur inside of national parks but on commercially used farm that there's obviously leads to conflict as the truth ok finally probably or livestock of the problems scientists from germany flatmate's institute have discovered a way to reduce that conflict they've been researching cheetahs and then maybe for more than a decade part of their study includes putting radio collars on the cheetahs and minor ting their movements they found she does it vastly preferred some areas over
12:28 am
others allowing them to map safe and unsafe areas for cattle herding. where it's about 10 percent of the area that is highly dangerous because concentrations of those very high and about 90 percent is much less risky for the harm was done by moving their cattle out of harms way farmers now lose much less of their herd to cheetahs. the country adopt a management to these day nobody sees a high risk area they just can't hold their head tilt to another place always just really not change and when cattle herders lose less of their livestock they kill fewer cheetahs and example of how scientists working closely with locals is helping conserve africa's most endangered cat. and as

12:31 am
and been fizzling let's do business the most traded share in the world is set to get even more attention officials are introducing the electric vehicle make a tesla into the famous s. and p. 500 stock index at about way short of $620000000000.00 tesla will be the biggest firm ever to be added to the index which features some of the top public companies in the united states investors are likely to rush to the stock which is surged at least 700 percent this year that's more than double the current top of 4 more on the s. and p. . $18000000000.00 worth of test the trades made every day it's. following developments for us in new york just how much more valuable could tesla gate i mean it's really quite remarkable at the beginning of the year the stock was at about $90.00 a share and today we reached
12:32 am
a new record tipped almost 700 to. pieces and you already did mention the valuation of more than $620000000.00 just to put that in context that means tesla is worth more than the 9 biggest global car companies including a folx bargain the general motors toyota or peugeot if you look at estimates well i mean there are actually some analysts saying this stock should drop to 90 dollars others are saying it could reach 1000 so my guess is as good as you are spot to create a white or a quite a remarkable rally and what we've seen already and now in after hours trading that this stock is losing some steam and we see that quite often that when a company gets added to one of those big indices then the days after and weeks after the stock quotes get under some pressure it's president elect joe biden has pledged to make electric vehicles a top priority so a u.s. road set to get cleaner and perhaps what it to.
12:33 am
well i mean 1st of all we have to wait and see what happens on generally fifths i mean we will see either a senator race in georgia or 2 senate seats are still vacant so if democrats could get should get the majority in the senate then joe biden has a clear past to go forward because his plan having that said there's still some catch up to do so far minivans and s.u.v.s pickup trucks i mean that's the hot car sales here in the united states sell is staying for about 70 percent of the u.s. car market selling about 12000000 vehicles a day so i'm just talking many events trucks and. s.u.v.s and if you look at tesla sales they're aiming at 500000 cars sales globally so there's still some catch up to do his quota for us there in new york with a bit of christmas cheer for us they say it's. now to some of the other

12:38 am
meet each other half way we'll be able to achieve the target set by leaders on both sides. but the agreement isn't without its critics in europe is it wise to quickly conclude a far reaching agreement with china shortly before the new u.s. administration takes office the deal could risk pushing the e.u. into the center of costly trade tensions between the u.s. and china torn between the 2 sides on the other hand some say china's concessions don't go far enough still an agreement seems to be closer than ever germany is pushing for this and also france is pushing for this and many others because they see more business opportunities and it's also a chance to level out the playing field with in europe because so far john edwards also preferring some e.u. countries through its growth initiative but the talks won't be over until a deal is signed on the dotted line of the rule of the european chinese investment
