Nigerian lawmakers summon military chiefs on Chibok Schoolgirls Missing
No fewer than 273 girls were abducted from Government Secondary School, Chibok, Borno, by suspected Boko Haram insurgents two weeks ago.
The House of Representatives on Tuesday summoned the Chief of Defence Staff, Alex Badeh and other Service Chiefs, over the remaining abducted school girls in Borno.
No fewer than 273 girls were abducted from Government Secondary School, Chibok, Borno, by suspected Boko Haram insurgents two weeks ago.
Of the number, 43 girls escaped from the captors unharmed.
However, the house at the plenary urged the security agencies to expedite action in rescuing the abdicated girls.
It further urged the National Emergency Management Agency to provide relief materials to those whose houses and shops were destroyed during the incident.
The house also urged government to seek for foreign assistance in rescuing the girls.
This resolution emanated from a motion by Peter Gumtha (APC-Borno), which was unanimously adopted.
Mr. Gumtha said that 43 girls abducted escaped from their captors while 230 were still in captivity.
According to him, rescue effort was hindered due to the neglect of the 50km untarred Mbala-Chibok-Damboa Road.
He said that up till this moment, the parents of the girls were yet to receive any reliable information from the security agencies about their children.
Robinson Uwak (PDP-Akwa Ibom) said that the country’s security system should be scrutinised.
He, however, attributed the security lapses to the low morale of the military who were currently engaged in fighting the insurgents.
Mr. Uwak and Nnenna Ukeje (PDP-Abia) stressed the need for Nigeria to collaborate with other countries to check the boarders with the view to rescuing the girls and to fight insurgency.
Ogbuefi Ozomgbachi (PDP-Enugu) said unless there was synergy between West African countries the situation would be helpless.
Contributing to the debate, Samson Osagie (APC-Edo) urged the government to do everything within its power to rescue the remaining girls from their abductors,
Farouk Lawan (PDP-Kano) said in spite of the presence of the military in Borno and Yobe, terrorism activities were still high.
Meanwhile, Francis Ezenwa, formerly of APGA in Imo and Charles Odedo formerly of APC (Anambra), defected to the ruling PDP.
