Former Vice President and chieftain of All Progressives Congress (APC), Atiku Abubakar, has commended the military over the rescue of nearly 300 girls and women from the Sambisa Forest in Borno State.
Atiku gave the commendation in a statement made available, on Wednesday, by his media office in Abuja.
“Alhaji Atiku Abubakar has expressed elation at the news of the rescue of nearly 300 girls and women from the Sambisa forest by the troops of the Nigerian military,” the statement said.
The former vice president said that it is unacceptable that hundreds of women, girls and boys have been abducted by the insurgent group, Boko Haram, over the last couple of months.
“While we rejoice in the rescue of the women and girls yesterday, we urge that our military continues steadfastly in the operations until all abducted Nigerians have been rescued and territories recaptured,” Atiku said.
The Turakin Adamawa expressed his unwavering support to Nigeria’s military forces in its ongoing mission to restore peace and sovereignty in the country.
“IPOB is being sponsored by those I will call the Coalition of the politically disgruntled and the treasury looters. They believe that by sponsoring this group to destabilize the country and trigger chaos, they will realize their ambition of escaping justice and then be free to dip their hands into the nation’s treasury again.”
