- Tells #BBOG Deby ready for enquiries
- Denies his president’s links with Boko Haram
Chadian Ambassador to Nigeria, Mr Isah Braimah has insisted that the Nigerian Government should be held accountable for the whereabouts of the missing Chibok school girls.
He said this when the Bring Back Our Girls group, BBOG, marched to the Chadian embassy in Abuja, yesterday holding banners with questions as regards allegations of Chad’s involvement in the terrorist activities in Nigeria.
The leader of the BBOG group, Aisha Yesufu, while briefing members on discussions with the Chadian ambassador said Mr Braimah expressed sadness over the kind of Islam being practiced by the terrorists, adding that all Muslims in his country live in peace with others.
According to her, the ambassador did not only urge the group to meet the Nigerian Government for further inquiries on Chibok girls, who have been missing for about eight months now, but to also direct further questions to the Chadian President, Idriss Deby, as he alone, could give detailed explanations and satisfy the group’s curiosity.
She further revealed that the ambassador also challenged the Nigerian Police to produce evidence of his country’s involvement in the terrorist attacks in Nigeria, as the police had alleged to have caught a Chadian with some arms lately.
Yesufu also revealed that the Ambassador had debunked his country’s knowledge on the whereabouts of the over 200 missing Chibok school girls, insisting that only the Nigerian government should be held responsible for the happenings.
Peoples Daily recalls that Chad had been rumoured to be involved in the negotiation saga to help facilitate the release of the Chibok girls by the notorious Boko Haram sect.
The deal had at a point, misled the Nigerian Army to sheathe its sword, after announcing a ceasefire amidst increased attacks from the terrorists.
However, the negotiation turned out to be false, as it was followed by heavy shelling and capture of more of the country’s territories in Adamawa State by the terrorists even as many Nigerians were killed in cold blood and others thrown into deep pandemonium while they struggle for survival.
The Chadian President is being suspected by Nigerians because of his closeness to former Governor Ali Modu Sheriff, who has been fingered as one of the Boko Haram financiers.
