The House of Representatives has reiterated its commitment to end abduction of school girls and the boko haram insurgency ravaging the North East.

The Chairman House of Representatives Adhoc Committee investigating the abduction of Dapchi School girls, Yusuf Buba Yakubu said Nigeria cannot wish to walk the path of the Chibok girls’ abduction four years ago and that the House was committed to get to the root of the matter.

“The national assembly arrived at the decision realizing the fact that the incident has become a security challenge to the Nigerian government and its security agencies.

Nigeria cannot wish to walk the path of the Chibok girls’ abduction four years ago and that informed the reason the house has risen to the occasion by making sure that it gets to the root of the matter by constituting an adhoc committee to investigate the incidence,” he explained.

The lawmaker disclosed that “the committee will as part of its investigative process, visit the area of incidence  and interact with relevant stakeholders, determine the action or inaction of the security forces before, during and after the abduction of the Dapchi school girls.

The incidence has attracted international attention which suggested that the country’s security challenges have become nastier and frighteningly comprehensive to such an extent that life has become short and brutish in Nigeria.”

The committee is expected to investigate all factors that led to the abduction, examine the ongoing rescue operations and come up with recommendations to avert future re-occurrence.
