CAN reacts to the abduction of Dapchi schoolgirls

CAN speaks on how deeply saddened they are about the Dapchi schoolgirls abduction.


The Christian Association of Nigeria has spoken concerning the newly abducted 105 girls of Government Secondary School, Dapchi, Yobe State. The spokesman of CAN in the 19 northern states, Rev. John Joseph Hayab, told journalists in Kaduna that the body is deeply saddened by the news of the return of ‘kidnap of large number of girls’ in Nigeria.

He said:

”CAN is deeply concerned with this development. When we have not yet got back all the Chibok girls, and now another 105 school girls have been kidnapped.

“And sadly, though, the Yobe State government have apologized for its first denial, but that denial made Nigerians more confused because it shows we cannot be truthful when fellow Nigerians are affected.

“The government and the security agencies must situp. The girls must not stay long like the previous ones before they are released.

“The girls must be brought back alive. The young girls are Nigerians. They need the protection of the Nigerian government. These girls can be anybody’s daughters.

“CAN is saying that the Nigeria security agencies must not play the propaganda game anymore. They should go after the criminals that have abducted these girls. The security should take serious action and stop making noise and confusing people.

“This particular abduction is a challenge to government to prove to Nigerians that the huge spending on security is not just a drain on our resources, because when we hear and read stories that billions of dollars is expended for security and we still have issues like this, then it tells us that there is a serious problem in the country.”

The kidnap of the 105 Dapchi schoolgirls has been confirmed by the Presidency who say efforts towards their rescue is being put on the way. News about their rescue cause a frenzy of exitement in Yobe few days ago but was cut short when the Governor of the state, Ibrahim Gaidam paid the families of the victims a visit. The moment he announced that the people should pray for the safe return of the girls, he lost control of the crowd who became aware that the news of a rescue was all falsehood.
