Chibok Girls’ Abduction: Jonathan campaign insists Gov. Shettima is Culpable

Femi Fani-Kayode

The Peoples Democratic Party Presidential Campaign Organisation on Tuesday insisted that Governor Kashim Shettima of Borno State is culpable in the April 2014 abduction of over 200 girls from Government Secondary School, Chibok, by Boko Haram insurgents.

The Director of Media and Publicity of the campaign organisation, Femi Fani-Kayode, alleged that the governor, the presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress, Muhammadu Buhari and the party’s spokesperson, Lai Mohammed knew the whereabouts of the missing girls.

Mr. Shettima, however, denied the allegation, saying no one should take Mr. Fani-Kayode serious as he “is one Nigerian that is physically an adult but mentally an infant. We all know that going into exchange with an infant is like having a dialogue with the blind, deaf and dumb.”

But the PDPPCO in a statement on Tuesday, said it was time for Nigerians to know the truth about the APC leaders and the way in which some of them emerged to become governors.

“The case of Governor Kashim Shettima of Borno state is instructive. This is a man who emerged as the governor only after the man that won the nomination to become the flag-bearer of his party, Alhaji Mode Fannami Gubio, was mysteriously gunned down in the sanctity of his home by a group of unknown gunmen,” the statement said.

“It was after Gubio was killed in cold blood that Kashim, who came second in the primary, emerged as the gubernatorial candidate of the party. The question is: Who killed Gubio to make way for Shettima and whether it is true that the murder had the Boko Haram link.

“Could it be, as many suspect, that Boko Haram were more comfortable with Shettima as governor than with Gubio? Is that why they killed him? Is it true that Shettima is friend with Boko Haram and that he paid them protection money for a number of years? These are just some of the questions that Governor Kashim Shettima must answer.”

The organisation said it was amusing that the governor told the world a lie. It said contrary to Mr. Shettima’s claim, it never accused somebody previously for the abduction of the girls.

“The fact of the matter is that our story has been consistent and clear right from the beginning and the records are there for all to see,” it said.

“We have said it from day one that the Governor of Borno State is culpable, and have questions to answer about the abduction of the Chibok girls. This is because he broke his promise to guarantee the security of those girls and he allowed them to be abducted.

“It is either he is suffering from memory loss or he is incompetent, insensitive and manifestly ignorant about what is going on around him, or together with others, planned the whole thing from the outset in order to embarrass the Federal Government and to bring our President and our armed forces into disrepute.

“Either way, come rain, come shine, at the appropriate time, Kashim Shettima would answer to God and he would answer to the Nigerian people for what has happened to those girls.”

The PDPPCO wondered why the governor questioned its role in the matter. It said rather than addressing the issue the governor hurled personal insult on the members of the organisation.

The organisation said, “The questions are simple and clear: Did he or did he not ignore the Federal Government’s warning and that of WAEC when they advised him not to allow those examinations to take place in Chibok? And secondly, did he or did he not guarantee the security of those girls? Thirdly, is it not true that he failed to deploy any security personnel to that school that night?

“The record shows that despite his promises of ensuring that the girls would be protected, not one security operative, policeman, soldier, armed man or even adult was with those girls that night except for one elderly gateman who was unarmed.

“The governor failed to keep his promise. He betrayed those girls; he let down Borno State and he let down Nigeria. Instead of him, begging God for forgiveness, working hard for the return of those girls and to assist in finding them, all that he does is to hurl insults at us.”

The organisation said it did not come to it as a surprise because “that is the style and the way of the APC for you. They are a party of failed propagandists, liars, slanderers and deceitful men. We lose no sleep about what Kashim Shettima and his party feel about us because that feeling is mutual. Whatever they feel about us, we feel exactly the same about them. They do not like us and we do not like them.”

    My problem of this administration is “pointing finger and trading blame”. Please we tired of hearing stories and stories and stories, act now ! If you know he is involve why won’t you act ? Is any body above the law ?are you coward ? Are you sick ? Are you incapable ?failed system !!

    • udemeobong

      Good one. He doesn´t know what role a prasident has simple.

  • BlackieUmukoro

    Shettima sure has a case to answer about the chibok girls saga

    • Wähala

      Take him to court!

  • evi

    It is time for the truth to come out. Shettima planned with boko haram to abduct the Chibok girls because he didn’t t want the FG to extend the state of emergency in borno, that is why he insisted those girls must be in school to write waec exams even when waec didn’t want to conduct exams in Chibok because of security report and that is why on the night of the abduction, Shettima ordered all military personnel to to be withdrawn from the school to make it easier for boko haram to carry out their plan. Shettima will never go scot free, he will surely pay.

    • abc

      See animal. “Shettima ordered military personnel to withdraw from the school” who do you think shettima is, the Army chief? Or GOC?. Just to help you not to show your stupidity further. Borno was under emergency on April 2014 when the girls were abducted, and all security powers of the governor was taken over by the president. Not to talk of the military who normally do not take orders from the civilian, even the Police and DSS takes orders from the president via NSA during emergency. And Waec is not an intelligence or security organisation, it is the responsibility of the DSS, Police, Military intelligence and NSO to determine how safe the location was and act appropriately. And Chibok, is not declared as danger area by the Military, that is why all students from schools in the danger areas were moved to Chibok for the Exams. Let me ask you; what of the 53 Buni Yadi students killed, What of the 42 Collage of Agric Gujba Students killed, What of GSS Damaturu 17, what of the Gss Mamudo 28 all in Yobe state, killed under GEJ emergency rule, is it also shettimas fault. Pls help you self go find the meaning of emergency rule b4 comming to forums like this. And also, why did Dumbo who suppose to oversee the security him self ( under emergency) refuse to act for over 2 weeks after the incident. Governors as Security chiefs, have no any power over the security personnel even without emergency, Mbu did all his recklessness in rivers to his suppose security chief and go scot free.

      • Onike24

        May God bless you abundantly, I actually feel pain in my heart as I write this, think of all the poor parents who have lost their children Needlessly! Wicked and heartless administration

        • NIGERIAN

          Don’t worry anymore as Chadian Political and Military leaders have started revealing the secrets and involvement of Nigeria Govt on Boko Haram activities. That’s way a couple of days ago Chris Olukolade was quick to start insulting and blaming allied forces for ”reckless comments” over the on going military campaign against the BH. I believed the whole world will get to know the extent of Federal Government involvement on the activities of Boko Haram once the election is over and GEJ lost.

          • Onike24

            A million amens to that!

        • Wähala

          Biko calm down, I suspected your anger is because you’re a mother… I guess I’m right, pele!

          • Onike24

            It is difficult to calm down when thinking of Nigeria? Is it a curse? Why are we so unnecessarily wicked and selfish? The pie is enormous, enough for every single person to have the basics of life, we are all Chibok parents, because but for the grace of the almighty, we could easily be in that position because of the accident of birth, Jonathan must get his comeuppance in this life, otherwise what is the point?

      • evi

        You are a useless terrorist like your useless brother shettima, you are also brain dead like your terrorist quota system general, did I wrote about waec being an intelligence organisation? Waec didn’t want to conduct the exams based on security report available to them provided by security agencies,there is evidence of the letter that waec wrote to shettima regarding this which was in posted in every paper, maybe you don’t know that dss and the rest of the agencies share security report to the public to warn and guide the public, your dead brain can’t remember that it is a Partial state of emergency, meaning the FG does not have 100% control of the military and the police . Shettima refused that waec will cancel the exams and promised waec that he would provide security for the students to write the exams, If he didn’t have some sort of control over the military and police, why would shettima make that promise? And Jonathan didn’t act because he knew that shettima was responsible for the abduction and thought shettima would do the right thing and order for the girls to be released but shettima and apc are using it now for political gain but all of them involved will surely pay.They can’t escape it .terrorist.

        • ICC Hague

          So you mean GEJ has no total control on his service chiefs whom he appointed? means he didnt deserve to be our president.

        • abc

          I thought I am talking to a responsible person who knows what he is doing. But to my suprise you expose how perpetually dumb you are and not I touch with reality, but just a terminal drunkard who knows no moral from the baby factory he was produced. You are telling me that CinC have only partial control over the Military and police, just listen to your self. On the issue of waec, which security agency gave the security report to the waec that does not deem it fit to write to the governor. Let the DSS or Military produce a copy of their letter to Gov. Shettima asking him to close the school, that he refuse to comply. Here are you saying even the president have only partial state of emergency. Then I think you wanted to say it is waec that has the control under emergency rule, isn’t it? Jackass!

        • Raqruq

  • Moe

    This retard has started again.

  • Okey

    I get annoyed whenever Shettima rises to play a dubious sainthood. Shettima is the greatest enemy of this country. He it was who recklessly, wickedly arranged and delivered the Chibok girls to Boko Haram. In saner climes, society would have revolted against Shettima’s continued stay in office. But nay, not ours. Instead, political activist like Oby Ezekwesili, in furtherance of Navigator’s assignment to her, would lead the BringBackOurGirls group (a political and most fraudulent organization founded to cheat a pressure group) to visit Shettima in Asokoro to give him pat on the back for rubbishing with his (Shettima’s) own evil.

    That done, Shettima is now a leader of Chanjee. What a shame of a nation ! Shettima can say anything he will against Fani-Kanyode, Shettima, by my reckoning, is the greatest enemy of this nation. If he escapes it here on earth, Shettima must, before God, account for any soul lost from amongst the Chibok girls. For he was advised, reminded and warned to relocate them to safety, Shettima bluntly, wickedly refused only to turn round to play politics with their fate, an outcome he cause. I am annoyed with Shettima and if he has any modicum of conscience, he will have no difficulty knowing why.

    • Onike24

      Yes Shettima can, but surely, you are the one with a problem, if you believe a drug idled, money laundering, unprincipled turn coat. If FFK is such a superstar may your first son be as productive as FFk, may your name be as honorable as his!

      • Okey

        Certainly, anyone that quarrels with the obvious is a prisoner of insanity. What FFK stated is a notorious fact known to the whole wide world. You may choose to dislike FFK, that’s your funeral. But if you dislike the truth because it came from him, certainly you an incurable inmate of Bedlam.

        • Onike24

Today it’s Shettima, tomorrow it’s Buhari, the day after it’s Tinubu, then it’s Tambuwal, every single day, PDP finds another person on whose person they pour opprobrious insults, there is Only one Commander in Chief in this country, who took an oath to protect the lives and Propertyof Nigerians and that person is Goodluck Jonathan, so enough of this buck passing wickedness!

May God let your life run it’s course the way Jonathan runs this country. May your child be reputed to be as truthful as Jonathan.

          • taiwo

            show your swagger imbecile

          • DCW

            When your people are moving right you proudly betray them by moving left. Let me ask you a
            question, can you proudly mention just one thing buhari did during his regime in 1983? that benefited you as a person, your claimed ethnic group, or the country? If you do, I will mention just 20 that Jonathan has done among others, and willing to do more. I don’t know where you come from, but given the sound of your name (which may be misleading) let me just believe you are an Ibo. Let me mention few things your people have benefited from GEJ. One of them is the Internationalization of your Akanu Ibiam airport that previous governments including Buhari’s refused to do, which Jonathan has done for people that for the first time International flights
            has begun to operate there. Do you even know the economic impact for the economy of your people who are known world over as business minded? This is besides the on-going dredging of the River Niger and building of the 2nd Niger Bridge that will aid commerce for your people which Obasanjo (the new APC and Buhari Supporter) refused to do in his 8 years as president? Do I talk about the modern Rail Way system that has been resuscitated and operational which for over 30 years has been rendered comatose by previous government? Do I mention the categorization of Nigeria as a MINT country and biggest economy in Africa under Jonathan? Do I mention of Agriculture now being made alternative source of income outside crude oil for Nigeria? Is it the successes recorded in the fight against terrorism and insurgency in North East that has made
            “insecurity” the selling point of APC uninteresting?. What about the privatization of our national grid (electricity) which entrenched interest had frustrated in the past? What about the success story of distribution of fertilizer which previous corrupt interest had frustrated and limited the contribution from agriculture to the GDP? What about job creation and youth empowerment through YOUWIN project which you can currently take advantage of? What about empowerment and reviving the SME’s through BOI- and CBN- Assisted financing to empower the middle class currently going on which you can be part of? What about Cashless policy aimed at blocking leakages of government
            earnings and fight corruption from the root by plugging the holes which is evident that GEJ is anti-corruption with a proactive approach uncommon in Nigeria, and understandably misunderstood by people like you who want things done the old way,and also a proof that APC was lying when it alleged that PDP had planned to pay huge some of money to INEC Chairman’s account in the name of Tinubu…? What about the remodelling of our nations airports as an International Public Relation strategy to save Nigeria from being made a laughing stock by foreign visitors? The list is just inexhaustible. May I remind you that there is no grater corruption than when someone and his gang pick up arms and overthrew a democratically elected government (at gone point) in 1983. Hence subverting the will of the people. And Having taken charge of government with the state treasury at their disposal, without any constraint, it becomes illogical to say he/they are incorruptible. At best, one can say he/they might not have looted enough because their removal by another junta was impromptu and early or the looting was unreported. But to say they never
            touched a kobo from the treasury is a blatant lie that only fools can buy. Worse still that government can be accused of terrorism for the singular act of attempting to kidnap from UK into Nigeria, Alhaji Umaru Dikko, by stuffing him in a container. Again, when the people or party have people that cannot be said to be corruption-free and makes certain comments or display a body language suggestive of pro-violence posture, like the case of the monkeys and baboon
            soaking in blood, besides other issues like alleged perjury or false declaration, alleged forgery and alleged inability to meet minimum academic standard befitting of such exalted position as the president of which cases are lined up in court, then that individual or group in this e-age could be
            anything but relevant to the needs and aspirations of Nigerians. For me anyone including Jonathan seeking my vote must, in line with the global best practice, make himself available for on-the-spot assessment by attending a live-debate session, so that people like me can ask him crucial politico-economic question of “what he or she will do differently as president if the incumbent is not doing it right”. Hiding under suspicion of compromise by the debate organisers to deny me that right to scrutinize his or her strengths and weaknesses is a denial of my right to information, and to miss the mark. At worst let he/she could select a alternative forum or platform where it has stronger confidence and invite other parties to come for same live debate, to
            enable me ask him or her the unavoidable question as stated above. Otherwise, the candidate or group is not worth my vote, period!

          • Onike24

            My instinctive reaction to your diatribe, is to ignore it, but that will be a great disservice to my Country. First, your I do not have to benefit from a regime to appreciate it, I am a minority of one and my self interest may not equate to that of the greater population. Having said that, I was old enough to witness some of my uncles imprisoned by Buhari, it was frightening, but they were all without exception freed by Buhari, because they had done nothing wrong. I was old enough to see first hand the excesss of the second republic politicians, but those were days when we had a sense of Moral outrage, which has long been lost! I am not Igbo but a Yoruba woman who comes from Lagos state, which modern railways, have you seen modern railways? The ones in Nigeria are an expensive Joke, then you talk of privatization of electricity, another farce perpetuated by Jonathan and his league of committed fraudsters, never in the history of privatization in the whole world has a privatized entity being subsidized by the very goverment that sought to divest from it! How farcical is that? I have met Buhari and was bowled over by his simplicity, he was forthright and was vehemently against bribes. I cannot continue to waste precious time, by stating the obvious, but please do not attempt to be a historical revisionist, it is intolerable.

        • blueeyedkitten

        The reason is because APC always commit one blunder or another on daily basis. APC is made up of controversial people, just look at all of them one-by-one. Look, more are still coming because the party cannot just stop committing wrongs. I tell you if they have anything against PDP they would have been doing the same even worse . Just that the few they did, did not have any weight and they could not find anything against our democrat and amiable president GEJ. Again don’t forget that FFK was with them, he knows them very well, he is the right man for the job. So I am enjoying the music. Recall before 14 February, APC machine of false propaganda was in top gear, singing “change…change” without defining the type of change, although it has suddenly collapsed because Nigerians have known the truth. THE REAL CHANGE in case our Yoruba brothers and sisters forget is THE RESOLUTION OF THE CONSTITUTIONAL CONFERENCE your people fought for which GEJ has undertaken to implement if returned. So make a mistake here by voting APC, and mortgage the future of your children’s children, who will never forgive you for coming very close to real change and blowing the rare opportunity. Now it is the PDP’s turn, you boko haramists are now shouting wolf. FFK please let the music play on.

      Why are you people troubled when some activists said they will take Dumbo and Ehijerika to ICC some time ago. If it is Shettima that is responsible why won’t you and Dumbo be happy to go to the ICC and tell them that, it is Shettima that is responsible and walk out. Simple. Isn’t it?. Like it or not, ICC is where Dumbo will be heading to after 29 may. If Fanikayode likes let him be his attorney, then let him tell them his stories.

      • evi

        Who was troubled? Why didn’t they go ahead and take ihejirika to ICC? Did anybody stop them? the same iherijika that Buhari and lai mohhammed wanted to report to ICC for killing boko haram members when buhari said any attack on boko haram is an attack on the north? Ihejirika even begged them to go to ICC so he will use the opportunity to tell the whole world how buhari and other northern elites that promised to make nigeria ungovernable for jonathan were sponsoring and using boko haram to do just that,where were you when ihejirika called el rufai a commandant of boko haram and when el rufai threatened to take him to court, ihejirika dared el rufai to go courtdo that he will release the files of el rufai role in boko haram operations , did you hear that el rufai went to court or said one word to ihejirika again after that?

        • abc

          See another animal. if Ihejirika is a good and patriotic Nigerian army chief, then why hiding the truth and sit on it. The onus is on him to arrest and charge to court anybody who have hands in BH activities as army chief, do you know that it is even a treason for army chief to hide some elements among the suppose enemies of the state. Is that how small your Igbo brains are. The man just make some nonsense statements about Elrufai when his name was mentioned by foreigner for being accomplice in BH. Is that how you think a reasonable Amy chief suppose to behave? Is that how you think a reasonable democratic president suppose to behave? Just wait for May29 and see how CinC works. It is then that fools like you will know laws were made to punish offenders, and no matter how highly placed one think he is, he will come to realise he is not above the law. And Justice will be followed to the later.

            You are an idiotic dreamer if in your little brain you think a dictator, coup plotter, a terrorist, fake certificated, a perjurist, an ailing and weak individual with a poor personality will be there. It is only in a fools’ paradise where people like you live. Why insult evi’s tribe? Who even informed your dull brain he is an Ibo? You uncircumcised rag-tag boko haramist. Hungry for 70 miragic virgins waiting for you in hail. General Ihejirika the brave and intelligent military general gave them a fight of their lives, that was why they were calling for his head. He dared them to go to ICC, then his people Ohaneze group will drag the respective northern generals to ICC for established war crime against millions of Biafrans. FFK has uncovered the plot of Buhari and APC, to ask Boko haram, their accomplice, to release the Chibok girls, if they be in their utopian-dream government. Which will never happen. It is a planned deal. Unfortunately for them government has discovered where the girls are. So shut up your unwashed mouth. I advise you use sensodyn tooth paste, rather than the chip stick your people use. Shebi you know how to insult. Olodo.

      • DCW

        Probably you were ignorant or refuse to take note that Ihejirika had already gone to court to challenge these politically motivated lies. He did not have the patience to wait for these liars to castigated him maliciously. That is pro activeness. Come to think of it, was it not Buhari/Lie Mohammed that said attack on Boko haram is attack on the north. Was it not Buhari that boko haram nominated to negotiate with the government on their behalf. You have eyes but you cannot see; ears but you cannot hear, only mouth to spool junk!

        • Babso

          He only went to court to delay his prosecution at ICC. Just be patient, he will soon have his days at ICC.

  • Onike24

    We have had enough go these scarlous lies, if the PDP have ANY evidence against ANY one, then let the institutions that are charged with maintaining the security of the nation, do their bloody jobs! If they have a scintilla of evidence against Shettima at the very least, he should be asked to explain his complicity, otherwise please please enough of all this nonsense! This is the same administration that took weeks to even acknowledge that the girls were abducted, of all the grievous crimes committed by this wicked administration the Handling of the abduction of those poor girls is particularly egregious and can not be forgiven! And should not be used for telling lies and pointing fingers, it is a massive insult upon a painful injury.

    • DCW

      That is exactly is what FFK has been saying that the abduction was a acted scripted of the APC so as to blackmail the ruling party to accept failure to provide security. So if APC is a party of credibility as it falsely claims seeing the calibre of people there the Tinubus, the Amechis the Lie Mohammeds and Okorochas (including “corrupt PDP” runaways), it should challenge FFK in a court or sue him to court for slander/libel. But it can’t because it would be worse for it. Even before FFK said it, Ajhaji Asari Dokubo who claimed to have attended the same training sponsored by a northern retired general in Libya alongside the erstwhile late boko haram leader Mohammed, confirmed that earlier. Regarding arrest and prosecution by security agencies, you talked like someone who does not understand that Nigerian is a mafia state. You talk like someone who has not being in the corridor of power or “parlour” of politics. In a mafia state you don’t approach everything as you would ordinarily. It is unreasonable to suggest that such people should be arrested, when you and I know very well that the axis they come from is politically volatile, and could generate a misguided emotional upsurge that could threaten the unity of this country or even work against the political interest of the incumbent. Why do you think, even to call for a constitutional conference was not possible for or genuinely pursued by our past governments? Why do you think that none of the former military heads of state of this corrupt country has been arrested or prosecuted by all the former leaders including Buhari ? Why do you think that some entrenched interests are against true federalism or confederacy as is done in the US? You think to rule Nigeria is like eating popcorn? Wisdom is what is required to lead a state like Nigeria, where there are conflicting interest and any genuine move to do what is right is always politically or emotionally misread just like the APC that have been shouting “change” without meaningful ideology and differentiable manifesto. Without telling us the type of change. I really laugh at some of us NigerianS, who have joined the change wagon without asking whether it is change from light to darkness. I cannot see light in a former dictator at 72, desperate to be president in a democracy he rejected when he and his gangs sacked Shehu Shagari in 1983, even when Nigerian have rejected him thrice. You talk about arrest and prosecution, but I hope you know that expediency means that it could be right to do the right thing, at the same time, that something is right does not make it proper given the prevailing circumstances. For instance, it is right for U.S to produce and sell arms to countries and groups in order to increase its national income. But it is not proper for US to sell arms to countries and groups to kill themselves. Ok, why have you not asked, if the individuals or party named by FFK ( who has been consistent with this allegation) have any sense of decency and integrity they would have gone to court to challenge such allegations at least for their names’ sake , but they are not doing it. Ask yourself, why?

    This man with dementia disease is not being helped by his paymaster, PDP. The party should allow him go home and take his drugs. Nigerians are not interested in seeing a sick adult talking like an infant.

  • Wähala

    Gov. Shettima talking about Fani-Kayode… “is one Nigerian that is physically an adult but mentally an infant. We all know that going into exchange with an infant is like having a dialogue with the blind, deaf and dumb.”
    My Correction… One Nigerian that is physically an adult but mentally retarded is Femi Fani-Kayode. Shikena… O’pari!

  • Koffa0319

    OK o, FFK, keep airing your boss’ incompetence for the world to see. You’ll are aware of these much, yet no one is standing trial. THANKS TO YOU! At least the next president of Nigeria will have something on record, many of which would come from your damaging (TO YOUR BOSS) utterances, to prosecute your boss on. Continue!!!!

    • Separate Us…

      I thought Borno was in state of emergency when the girls were abducted

      • petersen

        Borno was in state of emergency when the girls were abducted. he Kashim Shettima ignore the Federal Government’s warning and that of WAEC when they advised him not to allow those examinations to take place in Chibok and guarantee their safety by writing officially to allow the girls to remain in chibok.

        • Separate Us…

          It’s unfair to blame the governor when the state was in state of emergency though

      • Koffa0319

        I read that it was but the COMMANDER-IN-NOTHING president who has chosen to remain unconcerned and did nothing, to date, is much more guilty of the crime against humanity, is my point.

    • DT

      I don’t know how difficult it could be calling this b@st@rd to order. What are the Obas doing about this mad one? He is truly an overgrown baby.
      FYI. Shetima was elected on a PDP ticket. He has successfully vindicated Azazi. PDP IS BOKO HARAM

  • dd

    I like bold people. FFK is bold and tough. You can’t beat him

    • blueeyedkitten

      your brain is worst than that of fani-kayode. you might not know, but you need serious help.

  • DCW

    That is exactly is what FFK has been saying that the abduction was a acted scripted by the APC so as to blackmail the ruling party to accept failure to provide security. So if APC is a party of credibility as it falsely claims seeing the calibre of people there the Tinubus, the Amechis the Lie Mohammeds and Okorochas (including “corrupt PDP” runaways), it should challenge FFK in a court or sue him to court for slander/libel. But it can’t because it would be worse for it. Even before FFK said it, Ajhaji Asari Dokubo who claimed to have attended the same training sponsored by a northern retired general in Libya alongside the erstwhile late boko haram leader Mohammed, confirmed that earlier. Regarding arrest and prosecution by security agencies, you talked like someone who does not understand that Nigerian is a mafia state. Many of us on this forum dont seem to understand Nigerian politics. Probably many of us have neither being in the corridor of power or “parlour” of politics. In a mafia state you don’t approach everything as you would ordinarily. It is unreasonable to suggest that such people should be arrested, when you and I know very well that the axis they come from is politically volatile, and could generate a misguided emotional upsurge that could threaten the unity of this country or even work against the political interest of the incumbent. Why do you think, even to call for a constitutional conference was not possible for or genuinely pursued by our past governments? Why do you think that none of the former military heads of state of this corrupt country has been arrested or prosecuted by all the former leaders including Buhari ? Why do you think that some entrenched interests are against true federalism or confederacy as is done in the US? You think to rule Nigeria is like eating popcorn? Wisdom is what is required to lead a state like Nigeria, where there are conflicting interest and any genuine move to do what is right is always politically or emotionally misread just like the APC that have been shouting “change” without meaningful ideology and differentiable manifesto. Without telling us the type of change. I really laugh at some of us NigerianS, who have joined the change wagon without asking whether it is change from light to darkness. I cannot see light in a former dictator at 72, desperate to be president in a democracy he rejected when he and his gangs sacked Shehu Shagari in 1983, even when Nigerian have rejected him thrice. You talk about arrest and prosecution, but I hope you know that expediency means that it could be right to do the right thing, at the same time, that something is right does not make it proper given the prevailing circumstances. For instance, it is right for U.S to produce and sell arms to countries and groups in order to increase its national income. But it is not proper for US to sell arms to countries and groups to kill themselves. Ok, why have you not asked, if the individuals or party named by FFK ( who has been consistent with this allegation) have any sense of decency and integrity they would have gone to court to challenge such allegations at least for their names’ sake , but they are not doing it. Ask yourself, why?

    • Babso

      What a waste of space.

  • Disqus – ASM

    These are very serious allegations. I hope the ICC really takes note of these developments..and Nigeria ends in one piece after elections.

    • thusspokez

      Mr. Fani-Kayode had not made any allegation.

      • Disqus – ASM

        ” The Director of Media and Publicity of the campaign organisation, Femi
        Fani-Kayode, alleged that the governor, the presidential candidate of
        the All Progressives Congress, Muhammadu Buhari and the party’s
        spokesperson, Lai Mohammed knew the whereabouts of the missing girls.”

  • thusspokez

    “Mr. Shettima, however, denied the allegation, saying no one should take
    Mr. Fani-Kayode serious as he “is one Nigerian that is physically an adult
    but mentally an infant. We all know that going into exchange with an infant is
    like having a dialogue with the blind, deaf and dumb.”

    Going by Mr. Shettima abusive response, there is no doubt that he [Shettima]
    is the infant here.

  • the_adviser

    Shettima agreed to provide security for the girls but did not.

  • ayobamiba

    I have been consistent since this arrangee abduction on my insistence that chibok is a high level political mischief orchestrated,planned and executed by APC leaders with shetima as the point man in that whole episode. I am neither APC ,PDP or Apga but I am an ordinary Nigerian whose mind of reasoning has not fallen into any form of manipulation or bewitchment by politicians. The main reason for shetima and APC using this girls for such satanic mischief is simple ,to cause maximum damage to the good image of Jonathan and his government and to present him as incapable of providing leadership so that the highly ethnic and religious bigoted buhari shall ride on the wings of that blackmail to aso rock.the choice of chibok was simply because it is predominantly Christian enclave because using Muslim girls would have bursted the treachery. APC is an axis of evil .that’s why all that buhari is using as his campaign is providing security and fighting the phantom corruption song.shetima and buhari must be brought to account after march 28 when no man shall insinuate political meaning to their arrest and prosecution by which time God willing, shekau shall be captured alive.
