Adesina Said No need to worry over insurgents swapped with Chibok girls

Current news trending as Mr. Femi Adesina, spokesman to President Muhammadu Buhari, has picked holes in criticisms over swapping of the 82 girls with five Boko Haram commanders.

Report revealed while peaking on Sunrise Daily, a Channels Television programme monitored by, while responding to security concerns over release of the Boko Haram suspects, he said though there are pockets of attacks in the North-East, the region is securely under the control of the security agencies. “When there is ability and capacity to ensure security there is no need to worry.

It is reported that the North-East is under the effective control of the
security agencies. I know there are pockets of attacks here and there but in terms of whether the area is secure, the answer is yes. We know it is secure.” He described the recent attacks carried out by the insurgents as the “last kicks of a dying horse”.

“This is a conjecture and there is no truth in it, that was the last kick of a dying horse, that was what you saw,” Adesina said. “There are factions.

I’m sure when those 21 girls were released, a faction must have been pissed and they decided to strike with some ferocity after that.” Asked why the Bring Back Our Girls (BBOG) movement has not been part of the rehabilitation process of the girls, Adesina said: “The rehabilitation is government responsibility.

But that does not mean that non-governmental organizations can’t be involved. I don’t think BBOG is poised for that. That is not why they are set up.

“BBOG from inception has been doing a very good job and till now they are still doing a good job. Let’s give them kudos for what they have done but let them also stay within the ambit of what they were set up to do.”
