The Ohanaeze Ndigbo Youth Council Worldwide has described the abduction and release of the 344 students of Government Science Secondary School, Kankara, Kastina State as an award winning drama of 2020.
The Okechukwu Isiguzoro-led group said this in a statement on Saturday.
The OYC wondered the rationale and idea behind the drama, adding that it must have been carried out to make the Service Chiefs appear capable or “resist the idea of sacking them from office”.
In the statement by Isiguzoro, its President-General, and Mazi Okwu Nnabuike, Secretary-General, the OYC said the leader of Boko Haram, Abubakar Shekau, provided the new blankets displayed by the 344 abducted pupils.
It added: “The evidence of (provisions of) new blankets for over 344 pupils of Kankara boys by Boko haram insurgents makes the abduction fake or jankara and organizers of the drama as amateurs.
“Northern leaders have refused to accept their leadership failures in governance, most of their political leaders are behind the insecurity situations in the north and are benefiting immensely from the huge budgetary allocations mapped out for insecurity challenges, the Kankara boys abduction is business as usual for Northern leaders.”
