Chibok and Dapchi Schoolgirls: FG Warns Against “Reckless Statements” from Politicians

The Federal Government has warned politicians against making what it termed reckless comments on the fight against insurgency and efforts made to secure the release of Dapchi and Chibok schoolgirls.

The Minister of Information and Culture, Alhaji Lai Mohammed, who issued the warning in Lagos while speaking to newsmen said that it was unfortunate that the development which called for non-partisan celebration was ruthlessly turned into vile and despicable politics  that has no place in any democracy.

Alhaji Lai maintained that it was shocking that the DPD and their associates did not understand that terrorism  was a global problem which requires the assistance of other countries to tackle.

He said that the claims (which many Nigerians believe) that the kidnap of the girls was stage managed made a laughing stock of the party.

On the claims circulating across the country that one Sergeant David Bako of the Nigerian Army was part of the alleged conspiracy by government to abduct the Dapchi girls,  the Minister said it was another form of calculated disinformation by the opposition to discredit the Buhari administration.

Alhaji Lai Mohammed, therefore appealed to the media to be more discerning in disseminating materials that serve no purpose than to sabotage the ongoing effort to end insurgency and secure the release of the remaining Dapchi and Chibok schoolgirls.
