Kankara Abduction: Buhari Is Safe In Daura – DHQ



Buhari Reacts To Emergence Of New Olu Of Warri

Kankara: DHQ Dismisses Boko Haram’s Claim Of Been Responsible For Students Abduction

The Coordinator, Defence Media Operations, Maj. Gen. John Enenche, on Wednesday, stated that President Muhammadu Buhari is safe in Daura, Katsina State.

Enenche in a statement released on Wednesday noted that the safety of the President is not threatened by banditry in the state.

Recall that President Buhari arrived in Kastina State the same day students of Government Science Secondary School, Kankara were abducted by bandits.

Enenche while speaking on Arise TV disclosed that the President’s safety is guaranteed in his home town.

He said, “One of the major tasks of the Armed Force of Nigeria is to ensure the protection of government and state actors and in that regard, the Commander-In-Chief is very safe in Katsina and anywhere that he is or will be at all times.”

He also dismissed reports by Boko Haram claiming to have carried out the abduction of students in Kastina State.

Boko Haram leader, Abubakar Shekau, in a recording on Tuesday, had said the abduction of the schoolboys was done in order to discourage people from obtaining western education.

But reacting to the claim by the terror group, Enenche said, “On the basis of the characteristics of terrorists all over the world from the time of Al-Qaeda, Taliban, Al-Shabaab, all of them, wherever they will boost their ego or show relevance, that is what they will do.”

“What did they even do? Somebody spoke on audio and said, ‘I am Shekau.’ Shekau on a secondary note is a brand. All that needs to be done is somebody using his voice. The total aim of terrorists is to instil fear into people even beyond their scope of influence.”

“So, it is easy for the layman to agree that it is them (Boko Haram) because even if it is kidnappers or armed robbers, their aim is to instil fear and kill.”

Enenche, however, appealed to the parents of the abducted students to “have short patience” with the military forces. “With what the military is doing, by the grace of Almighty God, very soon, the children will be back,” he said.

He also called for more cooperation by all stakeholders and the people of Katsina State to ensure the schoolboys are rescued without any record of casualty
