Dapchi Attack: Buhari Visit Yobe State

Chibok parents travel to Dapchi for sympathy visit

President Muhammadu Buhari on Wednesday in Dapchi, Yobe state met with parents of the 110 girls abducted from the Government Girls Science Technical College (GGSTC), Dapchi last month.Buhari was in Yobe state in continuation of his visit to the troubled states.

"The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has described as iniquitous, the attempt by President Muhammadu Buhari to use the heartbreaking abduction of innocent schoolgirls in Dapchi, Yobe state, to score cheap political points", the statement by Ologbondiyan read in part.

Before going to Yobe, the President was well received in Benue, despite repeated statements by the state governor Samuel Ortom that the federal government had all but looked the other way as far as considering intelligence on potential attacks to its residents earlier in the year was concerned. "I can reassure parents, Nigerians and the International Community that we will do all that is within our power to make sure that the girls are brought back safely to their families".

While the herdsmen-farmers crisis and Boko Haram attacks have claimed several lives, the Presidency announced on March 5 that the President would be visiting some of the states affected by the killings.

"And again, the President lied when he said his administration "rescued" 100 Chibok Girls".

Dapchi is the headquarters of Busari local government area.

President Buhari said Nigeria prefers to have the schoolgirls back alive, and that is why it has chosen negotiations rather than a military option.

Before Nigeria, the US Secretary of State visited Chad, a major ally in the fight against Boko Haram. "I am leaving Dapchi today to sleep in Damaturu".

As a matter of fact, they were released by Boko Haram after the alleged payment of huge ransoms and freedom of captured Boko Haram commanders by the Buhari administration.

"The SpiderMan who couldn't protect Chibok is blasted by the SuperMan who couldn't protect Dapchi from alien invasion", tweeted the lawmaker.

"The government, under my watch, will continue to maintain normalcy and ensure that incidents of this nature are stopped", he continued.

"Be assured that measures are being put in place to achieve these objectives".
