No Security Presence in Chibok, Foreign Journalist Says as Borno Indigenes Laments More Kidnappings
A journalist from Marie Claire, France, Manon Querovil, who travelled to Chibok recently, has stated that there was no form of security in Chibok, the place where over 200 girls were abducted on April 14.
Querovil, who spoke to the Bring Back Our Girls campaign group, stated that her journey to Chibok was a tedious one with checkpoints on the road and added that there was no form of security when they got to the Chibok village.
“The most striking thing is that there is no security in Chibok and since they are living close to the forest the insurgents can come freely and strike,” she said.
Borno indigenes in the FCT are worried over the continuous abduction of girls and women by Boko Haram terrorists in the state even after the abduction of the Chibok girls.
Speaking in an interview during the sit-out of the Bring Back Our Girls group at Amusement Park, Maitama, one of the indigenes, Dr Fatima Zama Gana, stated that they had heard about another abduction of innocent women in Banki, Borno State, and its environs and the trend has become a cause of worry for them.
“Two days ago, we got a frantic call from one of the abducted women and she was talking in the Hilux van that gunmen stormed the place and picked up women from different settlements in Banki on the farm and in the market. As at that time, she was with her phone because they were many and were not searched. She was talking to her relation in Abuja that they were at the Gamboru-Ngala road. The abductors started raining insult on her and that was the last they heard from her. They pick women randomly. From her group, she said that they were about 20,” she said.
Another, Yusuf Sheriff Banki, decried the suffering of his people who are not only scared of their lives but are also facing scarcity of food and drugs for themselves.
“They can’t go to farm any longer because they are scared of being raped, kidnapped or killed. Food is rather expensive there now. They are suffering, not having drugs and food. No channels of supplying food there. Dangote is no longer supplying food there. Other vendors have stopped theirs,” he said.
