Obi Ezekvesili attacks Lai Mohammed for commenting on kidnapping at school
After the statement by the Minister of Information and Culture Lai Mohammed about the kidnapping at the school, the former Minister of Education Obi Ezekvesili criticized him.
Mohammed told Channel Television that developed countries are also suffering from school kidnapping.
He said this during the kidnapping of students and staff of the State Science College in Kagar in the Rafi local government area in Niger state by bandits.
“Even in the most developed countries of the world,” the minister said, “abductions take place at schools. Last year in the United States, we all witnessed three out of four kidnappings of schoolchildren, and this is probably one of the most developed countries in the world.
“The problem with terrorism is that terrorists do not live by your own rules and are especially interested in weak targets. They know that the kidnapping of school-age children will be in the spotlight.
“We have to be careful: we cannot turn all our schools into barracks. Information gathering and surveillance are important, not the physical presence of soldiers or police.
“We are dealing with people who think differently from you and me, we are dealing with people who have no obligation rules, we are dealing with people whose motivation is completely different from mine and yours. And everywhere in the world terrorists act in this way, but the most important thing is to learn from what is happening and adapt. “
Mohammed’s statement has been called the soulless Ezekvesili, an activist fighting to free the female students abducted by Boko Haram terrorists in Chibok, Borno State in 2014.
“Imagine. Another heartless statement that should not be heard by anyone in the government. Shouts of #ChibokGirls and parents, #LeahSharibu and #KagaraStudents parents and parents condemn this statement every day, ”he said. verified Twitter handle.
