Buhari Vows to Punish Negligent Officials in Dapchi Schoolgirls’ Abduction’


President Muhammadu Buhari yesterday visited Dapchi in Yobe state, where 110 schoolgirls were stolen by Boko Haram gunmen on 19 February.



In Dapchi, Buhari reassured parents of the abducted schoolgirls that the Federal Government will not rest on its oars, until their wards are safely brought back home.

He also promised to punish “any agency”, person or group found to have been negligent or culpable in the girls’ abduction.

He said at the meeting:

There will be no rest until the last girl, whether from Chibok or Dapchi, is released. The girls and all our students must enjoy unhindered freedom and pursue their legitimate aspirations. The Dapchi and Chibok students are our girls and must enjoy our protection. They must live to achieve their individual ambition to be great women of tomorrow. It is our duty to protect them and we are determined to restore peace to all parts of the country from the west to the east, north to the south.”

The President, who described the abduction as “careless”, stressed:

"It is my hope that any agency, person or group found to have been negligent or culpable in the abduction of the girls will be punished according to the law”.
