Abduction of Dapchi school girls wicked, callous act – ACF


The Arewa Consultative Forum, ACF, has described the abduction of about 100 female students of Government Girls Secondary School, Dapchi in Yobe State as wicked and callous.

The forum noted that the ugly incident was similar to the abduction of Chibok girls barely four years ago.

A statement from ACF National Publicity Secretary,
Muhammad Ibrahim Biu, said, “ACF shares the pains and trauma the parents of the girls, government and people of Yobe State and indeed Nigerians are going through and pray for their safe rescue and return to their parents soon.

“ACF urges the Military and other Security Agencies to deploy all resources at their disposal including intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance to the rescue of the abducted girls.

“The blame game between the Yobe State government officials and the Military on one hand and among security agencies on the other over this unfortunate incidence is unnecessary and unhelpful.”

ACF called on the Federal Government “to review its security architecture especially in the Northeast zone by sustaining security surveillance and intelligence in order to avoid a repeat of the Dapchi episode.”

“All hands should therefore be on deck to ensure that the girls are rescued. The stories that the abducted girls were ferried across our borders or within some locations in Nigeria, should not be ignore for possible link to the whereabouts of the girls,” the forum appealed.

Arewa Consultative Forum, ACF, said it was saddened over the unfortunate circumstance that led to the abduction of about 100 female students of Government Girls Secondary School, Dapchi in Yobe State by some suspected Boko Haram terrorists last week.
