The Muslim Rights Concern (MURIC) has reacted to the release of the abducted secondary schoolgirls in Dapchi, Yobe State.
DAILY POST reported earlier that 105 of the abducted schoolgirls have been released with 5 of them reportedly dead.
Director of the group, Professor Ishaq Akintola, in a statement on Wednesday rejoiced with the parents, and commended the President Muhammadu Buhari-led Government and the Nigerian Army for the early return of the girls.
Muric, however, berated Goodluck Jonathan’s administration for its slow response to the abduction of Chibok girls in 2014.
The Muslim group also sympathized with the families of the five Dapchi schoolgirls who died in the attack.
According to the group, “Ex-President Goodluck Jonathan can now see the difference between action and inaction, between goodwill and bad faith and between lukewarm attitude and proactiveness.
“Chibok and Dapchi are now reference points in a tale of two Commander-in-Chiefs: one who turns the other cheek while his army turns and runs and another who takes immediate action and puts insurgents on the run.
“We therefore call on Nigerians to continue to support President Muhammadu Buhari.
“We charge FG to ensure adequate protection for all the schools in the insurgency zone. Defeated, frustrated, bankrupt and hungry, Boko Haram is looking for ways of embarrassing FG, sourcing for food and ransom money. We must never be caught napping again.
“However, we are saddened by the loss of five of the girls. We sympathise with their parents and pray that Allah will grant them Aljannah Firdaus.
“We also pray that Almighty Allah will give the parents the strength to bear the loss.”
