The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has expressed shock over reports that ninety four Nigerian female students have been declared missing after insurgents attacked the Girls Secondary School Dapchi, Yobe state on Tuesday.
This was contained in a statement signed yesterday by the party’s National Publicity Secretary, Kola Ologbondiyan and made available to journalists in Abuja.
According to the party, “Indeed, we are very disturbed by this ugly development, especially given the conflicting reports on the whereabouts of these innocent girls. Our party restates that the life, safety and wellbeing of all Nigerians remain of paramount importance to us and we therefore insist that all efforts must be exerted to find these students.
“The PDP is monitoring development on the position of the Nigeria Police investigation of the matter. We however charge the Inspector General of Police to immediately put all machinery in place to unravel this disturbing situation and recover the missing children.
“We also urge the All Progressives Congress (APC) led Federal Government to live up to its basic responsibility of protecting lives and property in our country”, the statement said.
