Leader of the Niger Delta People’s Volunteer Front,
Alhaji Mujahid Asari Dokubo, released a statement
via his Facebook page insists no Chibok girls is missing ..
For this government to say that “Chibok 2014”
didn’t happen is to be complicit in a hoax no one
thought would assume international dimension. In a
way, it would give credence to Jonathan’s initial
reluctance to do anything about it.
His security people initially told him no such thing happened.
And in fact, some people were joking about the
matter at Jonathan’s expense. As was told to me,
“It was initially intended to embarrass President
Jonathan, make him appear uncaring and indifferent
to the plight of the people. Make him look
powerless in matters of national security.”
It is too late for this government to admit it, too late for the
APC people to say “all na joke ooo.” Boko Haram,
along with their sponsors, are happy to claim
“victory” over something they knew nothing about.
So, every now and then, they release 5…15…30…80
girls – many looking as if they were coached to
play certain parts.
And as you noted: “how did they
survive 3 years of captivity in under such terrible
social conditions & material deprivation” and still
look the way they look?
