Still on the missing Dapchi school girls, in a statement issued in Abuja on Friday, the Minister of Information and Culture, Alhaji Lai Mohammed, said top military and security officials on Thursday travelled to the North-east to add more urgency to the search, which has now been extended beyond the North-east theatre, to neighbouring countries.

The officials include the nation’s top military officer and Chief of Defence Staff, Gen. Abayomi Olonisakin; Chief of Naval Staff, Vice Admiral Ibok-Ete Ekwe Ibas; Chief of Army Staff; Lt. Gen. Tukur Buratai and the Director General of the Department of State Services, Alhaji Lawal Daura.

They joined the Chief of Air Staff, Air Marshal Sadique Abubakar, who had earlier relocated to the North-east, as well as the National Security Adviser (NSA), Maj.-Gen. Babagana Monguno (Rtd), who has also visited the theatre.

This is coming after Human rights activist, Aisha Wakil, claimed a Boko Haram faction had contacted her to confirm it has the girls.

  1. Please help us and shame them oooo

  2. Don’t worry yourself Lady, the kidnapping is arranged business , they know them self, is a northern affairs, if not why only 3 million is place on Boko-haram?

  3. APC is only kidnapping job DAT you people came for, 2014 na chibok girls to be released in 2016. Now is anoda mumu school DAT side kidnapped 2018 to be released in 2019 January. For your mind now you’re working so your crippled masses DAT side will vote apc abi, U HAVE FALL.

  4. I am not a fan of lai Mohammed but in this particular instance, world people what should he have done? Should he have abandoned his official duties as the Minister of information? He’s not a member of the armed forces deployed to rescue the girls, is he? Putting out information is his duty regardless of whether it is a golf course or not. I am very anxious about the girls, I’m praying alongside their parents but blasting Lai Mohammed for attending a golf session and tweeting from there is very unfair. We can only pray and hope. Beyond that, there isn’t much we can do and life must go on.

  5. He attended cos none of his children were among buhari celebrated cos his son who survived heady surgery came back alive but ignore when others are dying God is watching
