MURIC reacts to release of Dapchi schoolgirls, attacks Goodluck Jonathan

The Muslim Rights Concern (MURIC) has reacted to the release of the abducted secondary schoolgirls in Dapchi, Yobe State.

DAILY POST reported earlier that 105 of the abducted schoolgirls have been released with 5 of them reportedly dead.

Director of the group, Professor Ishaq Akintola, in a statement on Wednesday rejoiced with the parents, and commended the President Muhammadu Buhari-led Government and the Nigerian Army for the early return of the girls.

Muric, however, berated Goodluck Jonathan’s administration for its slow response to the abduction of Chibok girls in 2014.

The Muslim group also sympathized with the families of the five Dapchi schoolgirls who died in the attack.

According to the group, “Ex-President Goodluck Jonathan can now see the difference between action and inaction, between goodwill and bad faith and between lukewarm attitude and proactiveness.

“Chibok and Dapchi are now reference points in a tale of two Commander-in-Chiefs: one who turns the other cheek while his army turns and runs and another who takes immediate action and puts insurgents on the run.

“We therefore call on Nigerians to continue to support President Muhammadu Buhari.

“We charge FG to ensure adequate protection for all the schools in the insurgency zone. Defeated, frustrated, bankrupt and hungry, Boko Haram is looking for ways of embarrassing FG, sourcing for food and ransom money. We must never be caught napping again.

“However, we are saddened by the loss of five of the girls. We sympathise with their parents and pray that Allah will grant them Aljannah Firdaus.

“We also pray that Almighty Allah will give the parents the strength to bear the loss.”

Dapchi abduction: How security forces allowed Boko Haram to abduct schoolgirls – Amnesty

Global human rights watchdog, Amnesty International, AI, has revealed that Nigerian security forces got advance warnings that a convoy of Boko Haram fighters was heading towards Dapchi, a town where 110 schoolgirls were abducted by terrorists on February 19 in an assault similar to the infamous Chibok girls’ abduction of April 2014.

 

It claimed that no fewer than five calls were put across to security forces between 2pm and 6:30pm on that fateful day of the abduction of female pupils from Government Girls Science and Technical College, Dapchi, Yobe state.

In a report on the incident released yesterday, Amnesty International said the first call was made to the Nigerian Army Command in Geidam, 54km from Dapchi, informing them that Boko Haram fighters had been seen at Futchimiram heading to Gumsa, a village about 30km from Dapchi.

However, the evidence documented by the international group shows that the military did nothing to stop the insurgents.

“The sighting of an armed convoy at Futchimiram immediately sparked several phone calls to alert authorities. Sources who informed the military commander in Geidam at 2p.m. report that he responded to them by saying he was aware of the situation and was monitoring it.

“At about 3pm, the convoy arrived in Gumsa, where they remained till 5pm. People in Gumsa called Dapchi villagers to warn them that Boko Haram fighters were on their way. One villager who received such a call said he informed a police sergeant who promised to notify the Dapchi Division Police Officer (DPO).

“At about 6:30pm, when residents were heading to the mosque for evening prayers, Boko Haram members entered Dapchi. Witnesses said Boko Haram fighters asked for directions to the military post, the local government office and the girls’ school,” the report said.

Amnesty learnt from an eyewitness that approximately 50 Boko Haram fighters stormed Dapchi in a convoy of nine vehicles with Arabic inscriptions on them. The vehicles included seven Land Cruiser trucks, one Hilux and a Canter truck.

A police source in Dapchi also told the group that on sighting them, police officers fled because they feared that the Boko Haram fighters would overpower them. According to victims and eyewitnesses interviewed by AI, Boko Haram left Gumsa for Dapchi at about 5pm, arriving at about 6:30pm.

“They left Dapchi at about 7:30pm in the direction of Gumsa, where villagers say they arrived at about 9p.m. During the attack, army officials both in Geidam and Damaturu were again alerted. The military only arrived in Dapchi shortly after Boko Haram left. Villagers in Dapchi and Gumsa said a military jet arrived about one hour after Boko Haram left Dapchi,” read the report.

AI lamented that in spite of the several distress calls, the Nigerian military neither took effective measures to stop the abduction nor made serious efforts to rescue the girls after they were taken by Boko Haram fighters.

The Director, Amnesty International in Nigeria, Osai Ojigho, maintained in a statement that the Nigerian authorities have failed in their duty to protect civilians, just as they did in Chibok four years ago.

While describing the inaction as, “inexcusable security lapses”, Ojigho said, “Evidence available to Amnesty International suggests that there are insufficient troops deployed in the area, and that an absence of patrols and the failure to respond to warnings and engage with Boko Haram contributed to this tragedy. The government’s failure in this incident must be investigated and the findings made public and it is absolutely crucial that any investigation focuses on the root causes.”

‘Overstay Is Killing Us’ – Soldier Deployed To Borno For 2 Years Now Cries Out. Photos

A Nigerian soldier who has been in the northeast region for two years now – has called on the army authorities to consider and rotate soldiers due to increasing rate of deaths of troops. According to him, overstay of gallant soldiers in the region – makes their morale weak in the battlefield.

The soldier urged the army authorities to give their deployment to the northeast a duration so that fresh hands can come and fight against Boko Haram insurgents.

The plea was shared online by the Nigerian Army Depot in Zaria, Kaduna state. Read below;

Morning admin, with heavy heart and grieve in my heart I am writing to you for assistance. I am in north east ( Borno State). This is my two years in this operation and what I experience on first of march this year since my two years in this operation I have never seen it.

For I know in war front care is prerequisite but this one that happened make me thinking because I realize the cause of the rampart death is overstay of soldiers in north east.

This is what I observed in the front line, It makes the morale of troops weak in the battle field, the strength to fight terrorist is lost and the hope is gone. For I am saying this due to my experience, for I can remembered when we first come the moral of troops was so strong that we do pushed this people without fear or thinking behind but as time goes on that’s how tidiness started,

No morale, men become weak and that’s the beginning of our problem in the battlefield.

Please my short plead is that let Nigerian Army make this operation just like other operation where soldiers are been rotated, at least let there be a rotation even if it take one three times to come.

I wish this my cry go far to reach the right destination. Please let the operation have duration please overstay is killing us. Thanks admin for your effort towards my cry!!

Man Escapes With Arrow In His Back After Attack By Fulani Men. Graphic Photos

An armed Fulani attack on some farmers at Nyiwa Village in Mambilla on Thursday, 1st March 2018 sparked off a spiral of herdsmen-farmers clashes across some villages in western Mambilla Plateau in Sardauna LGA, Taraba State of Nigeria.

According to reports gathered EbonyiDaily, the initial attack at Nyiwa village which happened on 1/3/2018, started after the Fulani militia shot dead two Mambilla men in their farmland at Nyiwa community.

The Fulani herders had destroyed the fence around the farm the previous day which the farmers quickly and peacefully repaired. The Fulani allegedly destroyed the fence for a second time within a space of about 24 hours. When the farmers returned to the farm and were about to re-erect the fence, the Fulani gunmen, allegedly led by the said Maigari Gagarau and brother opened fire on them from a nearby bush in which they had laid in ambush, killing two farmers instantly.

The head of one of their victims was further macheted to pieces by Maigari’s team. They subsequently shot dead two other Mambilla men. As the alarm of this gruesome killings went round the village, residents scampered about in panic, some rushing to attempt to rescue those trapped by the attack. These people, however, similarly came under the same gunfire.

The villagers inevitably clashed with these armed herdsmen in the farm resulting in further casualties.

Ebonyidaily gathered , these Nyiwa killings sparked off a wave of fighting between herdsmen and farmers in the area. Nevertheless, the Nyiwa attack by the herdsmen turned out to be the head of a series of coordinated attacks organized and executed by the Fulani leaders, which quickly spread to other villages such as Yerimaru, Kasalasa, Ngesoo, Yelwa and the Mambilla Escarpment Road.

Reports of Fulani mercenaries arriving Maisamari, Nguroje and Gembu on Saturday, 3 March 2018 were rife by evening of that day. Some of these were allegedly lodged at the residences of certain Miyetti Allah leaders, Ardo Juli and Ardo Ali in Nguroje, according to the Sardauna stakeholders forum.

The Fulani mercenaries alongside their local militia began action around Yelwa with the slaughter of a Mambilla woman from Takam Village, east of Maisamari on Saturday, 3 March 2018. She was daughter-in-law to a certain Late Nasamu of Takam. The woman was returning from market when the Fulani mercenaries caught up with her and slaughtered her like a ram. Local residents pursued and neutralized 4 of her killers, while others escaped.

The following day, Sunday, 4 March 2018, an group of heavily-armed Fulani mercenaries left Maisamari and entered Yelwa in a convoy akin to regular army deployments. These heavily-armed mercenaries selected Mambilla houses in Yelwa shooting men, women and children and burning down the houses.

All non-Fulani people in Yelwa, particularly, the Mambilla and Kaka, were invariably affected. Several girls have been reported missing, having been abducted by these ruthless invaders.

Dapchi attack: CDHR condemns abduction, calls for restructuring of Nigeria

The Committee for the Defence of Human Rights has called for the restructuring of Nigeria, describing it as a trite demand which “requires all the will and commitment necessary.”

The civil rights organisation acknowledged what, it said, was the crucial need to review the structure of the Nigerian state, its governance and political process.

While condemning the abduction of 110 female students of the Government Science Technical School, Dabchi in Yobe State by Boko Haram militants, the CDHR said it was “a direct violation of their right to education and all other rights provided under the Child Rights Act.”

The resolutions, according to a communique issued on Sunday by the National Publicity Secretary of CDHR, Peter Ekine, were taken after its National Executive Committee meeting held on Saturday in Lagos.

He said, “The NEC acknowledged the crucial need to review the structure of the Nigerian state, its governance and political process. As an ideal federal state, it is apparent that political power is heavily concentrated at the centre. The NEC therefore considered the aspirations of Nigerians for restructuring and CDHR agreed that the call for restructuring is trite and requires all the will and commitment necessary.

“The NEC also commiserated with the families of all the victims of insurgency in the North-East. NEC, on behalf of CDHR, urged the security agencies to step up their activities and ensure the safe rescue of all the girls and all citizens in captivity of the insurgents; let “Dapchi Girls” not turn to another “Chibok girls”!

“The NEC also condemned all cases of extrajudicial killings by state agents in different parts of the country, particularly the recent cases in Edo and Rivers States. NEC condoled with the families of the victims.

“The NEC condemned the senseless murder of four UN aid workers in Rann, Borno State, North-East Nigeria, on Friday, March 2, 2018. The NEC also condemned the abduction of one of the aid workers who is critically ill at the moment. The NEC commiserated with the United Nations and the families of the murdered and kidnapped workers. The NEC was certainly disturbed about the effect this could have on humanitarian services to displaced persons.”

Suspected members of the Boko Haram sect have reportedly killed security operatives and some UN aid workers in Rann, a community in Borno state.

Rann is the headquarters of Kala Balge local government area of Borno state. Last year, over 100 people were killed in an accidental strike on an internally displaced persons (IDP) camp in the community.

A source told TheCable that the insurgents overran a military base and killed at least four soldiers.

Four policemen were also reportedly shot dead, while three humanitarian workers were said to have been killed and others sustained injuries.

A female nurse was also abducted.

Samantha Newport, head of communications, UNICEF Office for Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA), confirmed that some aid workers were killed.

Two of the aid workers who died were contractors with the International Organization for Migration, working as coordinators at a camp for 55,000 displaced people in Rann, the United Nations said.

The third was a doctor employed as a consultant for UNICEF.

“We call on authorities to ensure the perpetrators are brought to justice and account,” Edward Kallon, the U.N. Humanitarian Coordinator in Nigeria, said in a statement.

Newport said all the aid workers were Nigerian nationals.

Dapchi school attack: Escaped girl makes shocking revelations

Some of the schoolgirls who escaped from the Boko Haram insurgents during the attack on the Government Girls Science Technical College, Dapchi, Yobe state, have told their stories

 

Speaking to TheCable, a 16-year-old Amina Abubakar Mohamadu, said the Boko Haram insurgents came on soldiers’ uniform.

According to her, they were deceived, adding, “They were wearing soldiers’ uniforms and they said ‘Come, come, we are here to rescue you.’

“I even stepped my leg into the car, but my elder sister called and said, ‘can’t you see that Allahu Akbar is written on their car,’ that was how I ran out.

“They deceived us. They came with three vans in army colours and they had army uniform, but they didn’t have army boots, that is how some of us identified them – through the slippers and their military trouser which did not touch the ground — three-quarter length.

“They wore soldiers uniform. I saw their car. They wrote Allahu Akbar on it. That is why I did not run into it.

“Immediately the incident started, we started running. Our teachers helped us to cross the fence. I was raised to scale over the fence and ran to a neighbour’s house.

“We ran, ran. Almost five kilometres. Our teachers tried for us. They helped us to climb the fence.”

Dapchi Abduction: Escapees Return To School, Recount Ordeal

Dapchi schoolgirls: UN condemns Boko Haram abduction of 110 students

The United Nations has strongly condemned the abduction of 110 schoolgirls of Government Girls Technical College, Dapchi, Yobe, by suspected Boko Haram terrorists.

The Secretary-General, Antonio Guterres in a statement by his spokesperson, Stephane Dujarric expressed disappointment at the abduction and attack.

Mr. Guterres said he was gravely concerned over the situation of the schoolgirls’ abducted during an attack on their educational institution in Dapchi, Yobe state, on February 19.

He called for the immediate release of all the missing girls and for their safe return to their families.

The UN chief urged the Nigerian authorities to swiftly bring those responsible for this dastardly act to justice.

“The abduction is another horrific incident where young women and girls are targeted by terror groups.

And we very much hope that the perpetrators will be brought to justice, and just as importantly, that the girls will be found and returned to safety.

“I think the fact that these young women were abducted in an educational setting, where they should have been safe, just adds to the horror of the story.”

He reiterated the solidarity and support of the UN to the Nigerian government and other affected countries in the region in the fight against terrorism and violent extremism.
