Nigeria Military aiding Boko Haram – Former PDP Chairman, Ogbeh
Second Republic Minister and chieftain of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Chief Audu Ogbeh, on Monday, indicted the nation’s security forces over the recent abduction of several secondary school girls at the Government Girls Secondary School, Chibok, Borno State.
According to him, the continued dastardly operations of the Boko Haram sect in northern parts of the country was a shame to the nation’s military.
The former national chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) told Nigerian Tribune in Abuja, that it was embarrassing for the nation, which prides itself as the giant of Africa, to have its security forces allow criminals go on killing spree unabated.
“It is embarrassing and shocking, very strange to me; where were our security forces when these evil men were operating? They successfully abducted the school girls without security forces challenging them. What of the soldiers? What of the check points mounted on those roads? Where were the security posted to the school when the abductors operated for several hours?, he quipped.
“I begin to suspect foul play within our security system; the authorities should begin to look inwards, the system should be overhauled immediately to put a stop to the madness. It is only in Nigeria that such a thing can happen. Even in a war situation, you don’t touch women and children, but reverse is the case here, as our children and women are always the target,” he stated.
Chief Ogbeh, a former Communications Minister, also tongue-lashed the security forces for misleading the nation and the entire world that the abducted school girls had been rescued while it was untrue and they were actually still missing.
“Can you imagine that nonsense? They lied to the whole nation that the abducted children had been found. I watched the school principal on the television the other day saying that it was not true as claimed by the military authorities and that the children were yet to be found.
“They watched the children being abducted unchallenged and later lied that they had been found; who is fooling who?”
He commended the efforts being made by the troubled Borno State governor, Kashim Shettima, in ensuring that the remaining missing school girls were found.
Ogbe further charged Nigerians to pray for their quick release and for God to put an end to the senseless killing of innocent citizens by the Boko Haram sect sects.
