Return Of Gulder Ultimate Search: Is The Eastern Forests Safe For Such Event?

It's no longer news that the popular television reality show, Gulder Ultimate Search (GUS) is set to commence again after 7 years.

The show which was launched in 2004 saw its last season in 2016, with 11 successful seasons. The organizers announced that the TV premieres are set for October 16th, 2021, and will continue till December 19th which will be the grand finale.

We, however, recall that the last season, precisely season 11, was held at the great Aguleri forest in the southeastern part of Nigeria. But looking at the current security situation in the southeast, it's clear that the forests are not safe for such events. We've seen reports on how the Eastern Security Network, and Unknown Gunmen have been killing and attacking different police stations in the Southeast.

Mind you, the Eastern Security Network operates mainly in the eastern forests which increases the possibility of people losing their lives in such areas. My suggestion is that the organizers of the Gulder Ultimate Search should build a camp in an open place for the show will take place, or request help from the Nigerian military to send soldiers who will guide the forest until the show ends.(Image used for illustrative purposes)

I'm not oblivious of the fact that the television show is a great way to empower Nigerian youths, but we must put people's safety into consideration. Youths who participate in the Gulder Ultimate Search are usually sent into the forest to retrieve a "cube," or whatever the organizers instruct them to find. You'll agree with me that there is a need to pay attention to the security nosedive in the southeast before sending armless young people into the forest.

What is your opinion on this matter? Do you think that the eastern forests are safe enough for such an event to take place? Share your constructive comments with us below. Also, share this post on all your social media accounts.
