Nigeria to negotiate for Dapchi schoolgirls' release
17 March, 2018, 03:57
The President, Borno Governor and his entourage departed to Dapchi, Yobe State aboard a presidential chopper at exactly 12:04pm. "It is better to get our daughters back alive", the President said. But the way we support is in providing them capability, capacity in handling equipment, training, and personnel for special operations and sharing of intelligence to ensure that they have all the information available for the rescue of the girls. "That's our prayer", Tillerson said.
This kidnapping is reminiscent of Chibok's tragedy in 2014, which elicited global condemnation, and contributed in part to the defeat of then President Goodluck Jonathan in the presidential election the following year.
Apart from the three states, the President will visit Zamfara and Rivers State all of which have witnessed killings linked to herdsmen. A Nigerian presidency spokesman declined to comment. The Chibok Girls were not rescued.
BBOG challenged the government over how Boko Haram could have staged the attack, given that the administration and the military say the insurgent group is defeated. Some of the Chibok girls have been freed after what security sources say were ransom payments; around 100 are still being held.
Shehu claimed that when the president met with the parents at the Government Girls Science and Technology College, the scene of the abduction, the atmosphere was so emotive that the president cried.
Reacting via his official twitter handle on Thursday, however, Senator Sani described President Buhari as a "superman" who failed to meet the expectations of the people after criticizing the past administration the insurgents first kidnapped the Chibok girls from their hostels.
Boko Haram, which has killed tens of thousands of people since 2009 in its bid to create an Islamic state, lost most of its territory in the face of an offensive by Nigeria's army backed by troops from neighbouring countries in early 2015.
Buhari's tour is already receiving more knocks than commendations. 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.
