The Jama’atu Nasril Islam, under the leadership of the Sultan of Sokoto, Alhaji Sa’ad Abubakar III, displeased at the way the abduction of 110 Dapchi pupils are been handled today 2 March lambasted the Federal Government and Security Operatives.
They claimed that the abduction of the girls “is the most potent action to frustrate the girl-child education.”
According to them,“No parent now is comfortable, especially in the North-East, to allow his daughter to go to such callously unprotected schools; and the North is the loser,”
The Secretary General of the JNI, Dr Abubakar Khalid-Ailyu, in a statement in Kaduna said a serious government would have “by now sanctioned those implicated in the Dapchi girls’ travails.”
They also warned the government that none of the culprits involved in the Dapchi girls case should be allowed to go unpunished, as they It kicked against any probe, while noting that such would end up swept under the carpet.
The JNI were displeased that after four year of handing the Chibok girls abdution, the government were a gain faced with “yet another unfortunate and avoidable abduction of Dapchi girls.”
Blaming this on the government and security operatives, “There is apparent lack of synergy between security operatives in Yobe State, or there is active connivance with the insurgents, especially if reports of media altercations between the army and the police are anything to go by.”
The group identified that the abduction was similar to that of the Chibok girls in 2014, stating that just like 2014, Dapchi girls abduction is coming months before the election.
The group said, “Are there orchestrated plans somewhere to make a case for more security votes?”
