They all bear responsibility for this unfortunate incident. I know exactly how you feel.
"You had the precedence of Chibok". Both have provoked a growing wave of national anger and the belated deployment of military reinforcements to hunt for the missing girls.
Oftentimes, they strike where you least expect. We also implore members of the public to continue to support us with credible information on the whereabouts of the Boko Haram terrorists. "We believe that it is the al-barnawi faction of Boko Haram that abducted them because Shekau and his men have been decimated".
"The negotiations were mainly centered on an attempt at conflict mitigation which include the fate of arrested members of insurgent groups, especially accepting to free by government those found not to be culpable in any criminal action", he added. In the same vein, I don't think anyone ever expected an attack in Dapchi. Blame passing led to the trouble of Chibok that we are still recuperating from. Some of the schoolgirls taken in the Chibok mass abduction were forced to marry their captors.
Nigerian President Muhammadu Buhari claimed in December 2015 he had technically defeated Boko Haram, weakening the group so much that it would only be able to carry out isolated suicide bombings.
Meanwhile, Alhaji Lai Mohammed, the Minister of Information and Culture, said that the Federal Government had directed the police and civil defence authorities in Yobe to immediately deploy their personnel to all the schools in the state in order to ensure security.
Directing his words to the families of the kidnapped girls, he said: "We are sorry that this could have happened and share your pain. Human lives are very precious in the sight of Allah" Shettima said.
"This is the more reason why we had an all-clear there before we moved the battalion to Kanama", he said.
"This time around, your work is going to permeate into the population not just in Yobe state, probably in Borno, Adamawa, Bauchi, Gombe states and so on and so forth". I am also here as representative of the Northern Governors Forum.
"It is terribly EXHAUSTING but WE SHALL STAND".
They are not their daughters alone, they are our daughters as well. But there was no immediate military reaction because the military was gone. This is a lesson that has been repeated throughout history and countered most strongly by the ideals of the Enlightenment era-ideals enshrined in education that are still valued today.
However, the story became more confused when different branches of government and the army began diverging in their accounts - to the extent that the rescue of some girls was announced at a time when no official had acknowledged that any had been kidnapped. It feels like I've been taken back to 2014 #Chibok nightmare.
