Catholic group protests abduction of Chibok school girls

The JDPC organised a protest in Ijebu-Ode metropolis to mark 50 days of the abduction.

A group, Justice, Development and Peace Commission (JDPC) of Ijebu-Ode Catholic Diocese, Ogun, on Thursday urged the Federal Government to intensify efforts in the rescue of the abducted school girls in Chibok, Borno State.

More than 250 school girls were abducted by the Boko Haram sect on April 14 from the Government Secondary School, Chibok, Borno State with over 200 of them still with their kidnappers, the Boko Haram.

The JDPC organised a protest in Ijebu-Ode metropolis to mark 50 days of the abduction.

The JPDC Director, Patrick Ngoyi, told the News Agency of Nigeria on the sidelines of the protest that Nigerians must not relent until the girls were brought back alive.

“We have waited for 50 days now and we think the situation warrants more urgency than ever before in ensuring these girls are rescued.

“Of course, we do not advocate them being rescued with force as this may jeopardise their safety,” Mr. Ngoyi, a Reverend Father, said.

He said that JDPC would support government in its effort to rescue the girls even if it meant adopting a negotiation strategy with the insurgents.

Mr. Ngoyi also said government needed to diversify its strategy in reducing unemployment if it were to surmount security challenges.

“The people have the right to have a responsive government, one that cares, while the citizens’ responsibility is to ensure that government does its job,” he said.

The cleric, however, advised Nigerians not to take laws into their hands through self help, but rather report any suspicion of vice to the appropriate authorities for immediate action.
