Buhari Says Missing Nigerian Girls Will Be Rescued

President Muhammadu Buhari on Wednesday said his administration would invest resources in military might to crush Boko Haram insurgency in the country.

He is expected to visit Dapchi Government Girls Science and Technical College, scene of the school girls' abduction, as well as address parents of the abducted school girls and other stakeholders.

The President said he has ordered the re-strengthening of joint operations by the relevant agencies to coordinate the rescue mission apart from partnering with worldwide communities and organizations including neighbouring countries to ensure the girls are safely returned.

The movement sought to know the circumstances in which the Dapchi schoolgirls were abducted.

The attack on the town of Dapchi in Yobe state on February 19 was the biggest mass abduction since Boko Haram took more than 270 schoolgirls from the town of Chibok in 2014.

"Our Mosques and Churches witnessed daily bomb attacks".

She said the group was infuriated at the blunders that led to the latest abduction of 110 schoolgirls in another state of the country despite what happened when Chibok girls were abducted in 2014.

He then said he would prefer a firing squad to prison.He has recently changed his tune, telling security forces not to cooperate should there be any worldwide investigation.

"Our duty as citizens and, as far as this movement is concerned, and I think the movement has taken the right decision - we are going to court. It is better to get our daughters back alive", Buhari said in a statement.

Nigerians had in 2015 voted for Buhari against then incumbent President Jonathan following the former's promise to rescue the over 200 Chibok girls abducted by Boko Haram, and end the activities of the terrorists, among other promises.

"I wish to express my deepest appreciation to Mr. President Muhammad Buhari for the show of fatherly concern".

The similarity of the Dapchi attack to the 2014 Chibok incident has drawn widespread condemnation and raised question on if any lessons were learnt from the April 2014 disaster.

The group which accused the FG of incompetence with the abduction queried why the military was withdrawn from Dapchi, on whose account and to whom did they hand over?

Buhari said: "We are aware of orchestrations by some evil elements to take advantage of the development to score cheap political points".

"The Government, under my watch, will continue to maintain normalcy and ensure that incidents of this nature are stopped. Be assured that measures are being put in place to achieve these objectives", he said.
