PDP tasks Buhari on alleged complicity of military and Presidency in abduction of 300 Jangede schoolgirls

The leading opposition Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) on Saturday tasked President Muhammadu Buhari to speak out on the alleged complicity of the military and certain officials of The Presidency in the abduction of 300 students of Government Girls Secondary School, Jangebe in Zamfara State by terrorists.

In a statement by the National Publicity Secretary, Kola Ologbondiyan, the party described as alarming, the allegations in the public space, especially by the Northern Youth Movement (NYM), of compromises by the military, which paved the way for the invasion of the school reportedly
located less than 100 meters to a military check point to abduct over 300 schoolgirls.

According to the statement, “our party demands explanations to reports that soldiers stormed the
community two hours earlier and ordered residents to clear the streets and retire to their houses, only for the bandits to invade the town, assaulted the school and carted away 300 innocent girls without any impediments.

“Moreover there are already insinuations in the public space that the abduction was plotted by unscrupulous high-level officials of the Buhari Presidency, who are allegedly benefitting from the insurgency, terrorism and banditry going on in our country.

“In tasking the Buhari Presidency over the perplexing reports, the PDP particularly demands that the National Security Adviser (NSA), Gen. Babagana Mongunu, should come clean on the allegations that the escalation of acts of terrorism including the rampant kidnapping of students, were masterminded to heat up the situation and justify the demand for huge allocations for the anti-terrorism effort.

“Our party and indeed, all well-meaning Nigerians, insist that the Buhari Presidency must not keep quiet in the face of these huge allegations but immediately clear the air and restore confidence in the hearts of Nigerians, before it is too late.”
