…Insists what occurred in Kankara, Chibok & Dapchi unacceptable
…says no nation resistant to terrorists assaults however Nigeria will maintain watch over residents
By Soni Daniel, Editor, Northern Area
A day after taking custody of the freed 344 boys captured from Authorities Science Secondary College in Kankara, Katsina State, the Federal Authorities raised hope that the remaining ladies seized by terrorists from Chibok and Dabchi can be freed and reunited with their mother and father.
The Minister of Info, Alhaji Lai Mohammed, gave the renewed hope in regards to the remaining captives whereas addressing the media in Abuja on Friday.
“We is not going to relent till all those that stay lacking in Chibok and Dapchi and reunited with their households,” Mohammed mentioned on the press briefing.
Whereas appreciating the function performed by the Nigerian army within the fast rescue of the Kankara college boys, Mohammed additionally praised the function performed by the Katsina and Zamfara state governments in addition to these he known as ‘buddies of Nigeria’ in liberating the captives.
However the minister was additionally fast to deplore the kidnapping of the boys from the Kankara college describing the act as completely unacceptable, declaring that Nigerian kids don’t have to go to highschool in trepidation.
Mohammed mentioned: “Let me be clear: What occurred in Kankara – and in Chibok and Dapchi earlier than it – is completely unacceptable. Our youngsters mustn’t should go to highschool in trepidation. The Federal Authorities is doing all the pieces attainable to safe all our faculties, and certainly all Nigerians. And we is not going to relent till all Nigerians can go to mattress at evening with their two eyes closed.
“The discharge of those college boys is a testomony to the significance that this Administration attaches to the safety and security of all Nigerians. There isn’t a authorities on this planet that won’t face the challenges of safety at one time or one other. No authorities on this planet is resistant to terrorist assaults. What stands any authorities out is the way in which and method it responds to such challenges.
“For instance, college capturing has been a recurring problem in the US. Between 2010 and 2020, nearly 200 college kids had been killed and lots of extra injured in numerous college capturing incidents.
“Evidently that the world’s strongest nation suffered a tragic terrorist assault in September 2001 that claimed nearly 3,000 lives. In France, between 2010 and 2020, 286 folks had been killed in numerous terrorist incidents. And in New Zealand, in March 2019, 49 folks had been killed in shootings at two mosques in ChristChurch, New Zealand. I’ve given these cases to help the truth that no nation, regardless of how highly effective, is resistant to safety challenges.
“Again right here in Nigeria, the kidnapping of the Kankara college boys marked the second of its type below this Administration, coming after the unlucky abduction of 110 schoolgirls in Dapchi, Yobe State, in February 2018. Identical to the excellent news from Kankara, all however one of many kidnapped college ladies in Dapchi had been rescued unhurt. And in 2014, 276 college ladies had been kidnapped by terrorists in Chibok, Borno State; out of which 112 stay in captivity after this Administration rescued over 100 of the varsity ladies.
“Let me state right here that the Administration of President Muhammadu Buhari will do all the pieces attainable to stop a recurrence of those college abductions. However we additionally make daring to say that we have now moved with velocity and dedication every time we have now confronted the problem of faculty abductions, and the outcomes attest to this. Every time this has occurred, we have now all the time accepted duty, slightly than being in denial. And that has made all of the distinction in whether or not or not the kidnapped college kids have been recovered. We is not going to relent till all those that stay lacking in Chibok and Dapchi and reunited with their households.
“Regardless of the safety challenges that we, as a nation, could also be going through at the moment, they don’t seem to be insurmountable. We will solely enchantment to those that are fast to politicize the problem of safety to desist from such. The reactions in sure quarters to the Kankara incident had been shameful. Some Nigerians went so far as denigrating their authorities and nation in essentially the most uncouth and irresponsible method.
“They merely threw decorum to the wind and allowed their feelings to take a greater a part of them. When disasters and tragedies strike, folks come collectively. We hope the naysayers have learnt their classes. And we hope those that have began buying and selling and politicking with the hash tag BringBackOurBoys’ can now go dwelling, as our boys have been introduced again, even earlier than their doubtful marketing campaign may take off,” the minister mentioned.
