Fani-Kayode claims Nigerian govt lied about sending Airforce jets to rescue Dapchi girls


Former Minister of Aviation, Femi Fani-Kayode, has said that the Nigerian government lied about deploying 100 Airforce jets, to look for the Dapchi school girls that have been abducted by suspected Boko Haram insurgents.

Writing on his Twitter page, Fani-Kayode described comments from the Minister of Information, Lai Mohammed, as “another of his crazy hallucinations and more evidence of his deep-seated delusions”.

“When our mendacious Min. of Information,lying Lai Mohammed,said 100 Airforce jets had been deployed to look for the Dapchi girls I knew it was yet another of his crazy hallucinations and more evidence of his deep-seated delusions. The Airforce themselves have refuted his claim,” he tweeted.

According to reports, the Nigerian Air Force (NAF) had earlier deployed more platforms to the North-east for the search, as the security agencies ramp up their efforts to locate and rescue the girls.

As at 6pm on Monday, the NAF had flown a total of 200 hours while conducting the search.
