Youths of opposition Peoples Democratic Party units has faulted claims by the federal government that school girls of Dapchi, Yobe state that were kidnapped a couple of weeks ago have regained their freedom.
The National Coordinator of Peoples Democratic Party National Youth League, Hon Inioribo Tamunotonye described the purported abduction and release of the Dapchi school girls as fraud perpetrated by the federal government.
“The so-called abduction and release of the school Yobe girls (this morning) was a well calculated script orchestrated by the federal government and All Progressive Congress to divert Nigeria’s scarce resources and deceive unsuspecting members of the public”
“Firstly, since the news of the purported abduction broke out, Boko Haram never came out to admit attacking or being in possession of the girls unlike what was transpired in 2014 after the Chibok girls kidnap.
Secondly, there are reports that the military and other security agencies were preinformed of the invasion militiamen in military uniform to Dapchi but they did nothing.
Thirdly, the purported kidnap only happened just when the APC corrupt military dismantled their checkpoint in the area”
“The truth of the matter is that the girls have always been in the detention of government mercenaries and agents. President Buhari and APC know that they have lost goodwill so they had to recruit their mercenaries to act their script and reward them with part of government resources in the guise of ransom while the bulk of it is diverted into prosecuting the President’s reelection.
The aims are to divert public attention from the growing insecurity in Benue, Taraba, Zamfara and other states where death has been going nonstop due to farmers and herdsmen feud and divert public resources. But Nigerians can’t be fooled the second time”, Tamunotonye stated.
He described the action of the federal government as evil and wicked and demand investigation by the international community.
