Nigeria to negotiate for Dapchi schoolgirls' release

Share

On April 14, 2014, 274 students from Government Girls Secondary School in Chibok, Borno State, were kidnapped by Boko Haram insurgents.

Also, Maimuna Usman, mother of one of the girls, said, "President Buhari is a man of his words, we have no doubt in his words that efforts have been intensified to rescue the girls".

They are expected to ascertain the circumstances surrounding the abduction of the girls, confirm the presence, composition, scale and disposition of security emplaced in Dapchi as well as in GGSTC before the incident and suggest measures that can lead to the location and rescue of the girls. "That's our prayer", Tillerson said.

Abuja - President Muhammadu Buhari on Wednesday gave himself a pat on the back over his response to Dapchi schoolgirls' abduction.

According to the president, his government's better sensitivity is shown in its better response to the Dapchi abduction when compared to the dancing antics of former president Goodluck Jonathan in 2014.

Journalists other than those of NTA and the News Agency of Nigeria were practically barred from filming or covering the president's arrival.

Buhari also said the government was partnering with the International Community and organizations including our neighbours to ensure that the girls are safely returned.

This Day reports that as high-wire politics takes centre stage over the decision by President Buhari to decline assent to the Electoral (Amendment) bill, the National Assembly has announced its intention to retransmit a tweaked version of bill to the president for his assent. As a matter of fact, they were released by Boko Haram after the alleged payment of huge ransoms and freedom of captured Boko Haram commanders by the Buhari administration.

Dapchi is the headquarters of Busari local government area. A serious President, knowing how vulnerable the Northeast is would have sent these 150,000 policemen to guard schools in the Northeast rather than send them out to guard APC big shots all over the country.

Nigeria is grappling with an insurgency by jihadist group Boko Haram which has killed at least 20,000 people since 2009.

That marked a shift from past statements when he had said Boko Haram had been totally defeated. As he has confessed, the president appears not to have been very sensitive to the mindset of his Inspector General of Police on the directive to remain in Benue to prevent further deaths from occurring.
