President Muhammadu Buhari has officially announced that the 105 Dapchi schoolgirls and two others previously captured by the Boko Haram terrorists were released without any conditions attached.
Buhari’s declaration of amnesty for Boko Haram terrorists is curious when viewed against the backdrop of his refusal to designate killer herdsmen who have been on rampage all over Nigeria as terrorists.
The European Union on Friday commended President Muhammadu Buhari for the release of the abducted Dapchi schoolgirls.
The problem I saw recently in Nigeria, is that anyone, who criticised PMB’S government policies somersaults, is assumed to be an ethnicist, PDP member or GEJ supporter.
The Federal Government has accused the opposition Peoples Democratic
Party (PDP) of plumbing the depths of infamy for saying the abduction
and release of the Dapchi schoolgirls were stage-managed.
President Muhammadu Buhari is committed to the freedom of Leah Sharibu, the only Dapchi schoolgirl still in captivity, as he was to the freedom of all the 110 girls when they were abducted by Boko Haram terrorists.
I am happy that the Dapchi girls are all back home but I am deeply troubled by the fact that one of them was left behind and by the assertion that 5 of them died whilst in captivity.
Nigeria’s main opposition party Wednesday accused the country’s government of staging the abduction and eventual release of the Dapchi schoolgirls to score political points.
One of the freed Dapchi schoolgirls, Miss Khadija Grema, has said five of her colleagues died of heart attack caused by stress while in custody of Boko Haram.
When PMB’ s visit to Dapchi received a red carpet welcome, the non-initiates didn’t realise a magical and dramatic release of the captured girls was in the works.
