The Nasrul Lahi-l-Fatih Society (NASFAT) has described as “inexcusable, heinous and devious” the abduction of 110 students of Government Girls Science School, Dapchi in Yobe State.

President of the Society, Engr. Kamil Yomi Bolarinwa said though the prompt response of the government was commendable, nothing must be spared to secure the immediate release of the girls.


According to him, the rescue mission must be total and uncompromising. 

In a statement by the Publicity Secretary of the Society, Alhaji Banji Busari, the society commiserated with the parents of the abducted schoolgirls and urged the Federal Government to do all it can towards the immediate release of the schoolgirls. 

Bolarinwa said: “We are in pains at understanding the motivation of the current action of the terrorist group whose members definitely are not Muslims and do not represent Islam. We deeply share the pains, trauma and the agony of the distraught parents of these hapless school children.

According to the NASFAT President, the recent sad incident certainly evokes anxieties and trepidation, against the background of the similar occurrence of abduction of 276 students of Chibok Girls Secondary School in April 2014.

He said: “While we acknowledge the seriousness with which the current administration has combated terrorism, we state that a lot still needs to be done as we had thought an incident like this will never happen again in any part of the Nigerian territory.

“For this administration, this abduction may have practically rubbished its modest achievements and progress in restoring peace to the North East. As a matter of fact, this latest abduction has occurred while this administration was celebrating the release of three UNIMAID lecturers and ten other female captives by the insurgents through intense negotiation”.

The society however stressed the need for the security agencies to overhaul their security architecture to avert the ugly incident in the future.

“Judging by the insurgents last operation, it may be dangerous to assume that the deadly terrorist group has been defeated”, the statement said.
