Dapchi School Girls Abduction Stage-Managed To Fool Nigerians – PDP

Published

The People Democratic Party, PDP has condemned the alleged staging of the kidnap and release of the Dapchi School Girls by the All Progressives Congress (APC) and certain officials in the Presidency.

The view of the party concerning the recent release of the Dapchi School girls earlier today is contained in a press statement released by the National Publicity Secretary of the Party, Mr. Kola Ologbandiyan.

According to Mr. Kola, the party believes that the recent release of the girls is part of the script by the federal government to fool Nigerians and to push their 2019 reelection bid

“Our Party considers this act as wicked, callous and tormenting to use innocent schoolgirls as pawns in an ignoble script that was designed to hoodwink Nigerians and orchestrate a great rescue and security prowess of a conquering general, all to push a 2019 reelection bid, is an unpardonable gamble with human lives.

While this failed Dapchi drama remains a poorly crafted tragicomedy: a scam of no equal dimension, Nigerians are not ready to forgive the APC and the Presidency for the torments inflicted on the girls, their parents and the human community worldwide just to score a cheap political point.” He said

He said that the PDP considers the use of these innocent girls as pawn for the propaganda of the government as evil and a crime against humanity.

“There is no evidence that the Boko Haram insurgents or any militant group abducted the schoolgirls in the first place. Rather, what is evident to all is the high level official manipulation of security movements in Dapchi both in the staged abduction and the returning of the traumatized schoolgirls.

“It is instructive to note that till date, no report has been presented by the National Security Adviser (NSA), who has been charged by President Muhammadu Buhari with investigation of the abduction. This is in addition to deliberate efforts by the government to suppress free flow of information around the abduction.

“Even the regular Nigerian on the street has examined the events leading to this abduction of our daughters as well as their release and can deduce the obvious.

“Nigerians are all aware that both the abduction and return of the schoolgirls were dramatically preceded by questionable withdrawal of troops and all security apparati at checkpoints and flashpoints in the Dapchi area.”

He stated further that the circumstances that led to the kidnap of the girls in the first place has not being clarified by President buhari, as no arrest has so far been affected in the entire saga.

“Nigerians are all aware that both the abduction and return of the schoolgirls were dramatically preceded by questionable withdrawal of troops and all security apparati at checkpoints and flashpoints in the Dapchi area.

“The PDP therefore calls on the United Nations (UN) and the International Criminal Court to declare this evil by the APC Federal Government a war crime against humanity and immediately commence investigation on the matter. We demand the arrest and prosecution of all those involved in this saga.

“In the same vein, we join Nigerians to demand for the setting up of a UN monitored Truth Commission to unravel the facts around the Dapchi event as well as the abduction of Schoolgirls in Chibok, Borno State in 2014.” He Said

Kola, however, commiserate with the families of the girls that were released. He also urged Nigerians to be watchful and to continue to monitor the desperate activities of the APC government as the election year approaches.
