    Abducted female students of Chibok: we gives 6 posers to Borno Governor

    ...says there's conspiracy between Shettima, school authorities

    our position  on the abduction of female students in Chibok

    Since the abduction of some female students in Chibok Local  Government Area of Borno State, we  decided to be silent  for some reasons. We have decided that we will make statements when we  have all the facts of the matter. It may interest Nigerians to know that  we have fundamental questions which demand one million answers:



    1.    Since the abduction of these girls over two weeks ago, has Borno
    State Governor, Alhaji Kashim Shettima, constituted any panel of investigation with a view to making its report public?



    2.    How did the 353 female students disappear from the school into the thin air?



    3.    Why did the Borno State Commissioner for Education, Principal, Vice
    Principal and Chief Security Officer, all Muslims, ignore the valid  advice of


    WAEC on the security implication of writing exams in the  school and the need to have a centre where the children’s life will be  secured?



    4.    How did Boko Haram carry over 200 students and their food  stolen by these criminals from the school? Was it carried with trailer?



    5.    Why is it that since this issue came up, no single photograph of


    the abducted children was made public by the school authorities? After all, they
    were preparing for exams and may have submitted their photographs.



    6.    Where were the daughters of the Principal, Vice Principal and Chief
    Security Officer when the abduction took place?



    We hope that this is not a political gimmick to carry out a political  conspiracy against these daughters of Nigerians, future mothers of  Nigeria and citizens who are wants to be leaders of tomorrow.


    So these are the questions; we have done our investigations, we are  begging the international community, we are begging the Federal  Government of Nigeria and the press to ask these legitimate questions  from the Governor, Commissioner for Education, Principal and CSO of the  school because Chibok is a predominantly Christian area. What we are  after is the safety and future of these children, whether they are  Christians or Muslims or our enemies doesn't matter. They are Nigerians,  first and foremost.



    Our positions are as follows:



    1. The Governor and government of Borno State should and must as a  matter of urgency stop playing politics with the lives of the children  of other people. They should produce those children without delay  because they know their whereabouts.

    2. We demand an explanation from the Governor, Commissioner for  Education, Principal and CSO of the school on what they did and what  they did not do that led to the ferrying away of these innocent children  who went to sit for an examination for the betterment of their  tomorrow.

    3. How come that the parents of these children have not been able to  come out and say anything? Are they saying that these children are  orphans and do not have parents? We demand an explanation because from  our investigation, parents of these children are facing intimidation and  threats from the government of Borno State. That is why they could not  come out to speak; but they are nursing their pains in silence.

    4. We also demand that the Federal Government and the international  community should help us beg the Governor of Borno State to do  everything within his powers to produce these children.

    6. We also reject a situation where they will turn our daughters to  be sex slaves of these criminals called Boko Haram members. We have it  on good authority that some of these children are being raped 15 times a  day. Some of these children are being compelled to be wives of these  criminals. If you want to marry somebody's daughter, you must seek the  consent of her parents and not to ferry under-aged children and  perpetrate a lot of havoc on them.

    The abduction of these girls seems a resurrection of what the  Christian communities in Northern Nigeria have been suffering for  centuries in the hands of the Emirs and Imams regarding forceful  conversion and abduction of Christian girls. Borno State government  should be reminded that the fundamental human rights of these people  should be respected and protected.

    The Governor should provide immediate explanation because we know  that some people want to sacrifice these children on the altar of  politics. There is a limit to which Christians would tolerate all these  abnormalities. We suspect a conspiracy among all of these characters  including the Governor, Commissioner for Education, Principal and CSO  since non of the daughters of the teachers and Principal were abducted;  there is more to it
