The Nigeria Army should take responsibility and look forward to rescuing the Dapchi missing girls on time instead of shift blame on the Nigeria Police.
This was contained in a press release by the National Coordinator of United Young Professional, Adewole Kehinde in Abuja on Tuesday. He said the Army didn’t inform the Police “officially” as claimed by the Army Spokesperson.
“There are ways and rules guiding handover a troubled territories to another security sisters agencies but in the case of Dapchi, the Nigeria Army through the spokesperson of the Operation Lafiya Dole never informed or handed over to the Police, they just assumed the Police is on ground, Adewole said.
Adewole further reiterated that Yobe State Governor, Ibrahim Geidam has insisted that the abduction was preceded by the withdrawal of troops safeguard the troubled area, he never made mention that the area was handed over to the Nigeria Police.
“Governor, Ibrahim Geidam is the Chief Security Officer of Yobe State and his statement cannot be taken lightly as he has indicted the Nigeria Army as the cause of the adoption, Adewole said.
“The claimed by the spokesperson of the Operation Lafiya Dole, Col Nwachukwu that ‘Police should protect the civilian population whenever the Army have liberated a community from insurgent’ is not a enough excuse to say the Dapchi community was handed over ‘Officially’ to the Nigeria Police, Adewole concluded.
