Dapchi episode will make a good movie, Shehu Sani says as Senate tasks Buhari on release of Christian schoolgirl

Senator Shehu Sani, has reacted to the released of the 110 Dapchi schoolgirls.

The Senator representing Kaduna Central Senatorial District in National Assembly, said the abduction and release of the pupils by Boko Haram insurgents would make a good movie.

In a post he shared on twitter on Thursday, Sani said, “Since Dapchi has been turned into a Sahelian Tinsel Town, then Steven Spielberg or Spike Lee or Jerry Bruckheimer of the Pirates of the Caribbean needs to visit, to explore the possibility of a blockbuster.”

Recall that the Senator had been involved in previous negotiations between the Federal Government and Boko Haram for the release of the Chibok girls under the administration of Goodluck Jonathan.

The Boko Haram insurgents had on Wednesday morning brought 104 out of the 110 schoolgirls they took away from Government Girls’ Science Secondary School in Dapchi, Yobe State.

Five of the girls have reportedly died while one, a Christian among them, was held back for refusing to convert to Islam.

Meanwhile, the Senate has called on the security agencies in the country to secure the release of the last Dapchi schoolgirl held back by Boko Haram insurgents.

The upper chamber on Thursday plenary, also sought the release of the remaining 112 Chibok girls in captivity.

Majority leader, Senator Ahmad Lawan raised the point of order on the “recovery, return or release” of the abducted Dapchi girls.

He said, “We still have one more student of Dapchi that has not returned home. We still have 112 of Chibok girls that have not been returned.

“I want to use this opportunity to urge the Federal Government to leave no stone unturned in the effort to recover the remaining girl from Dapchi and 112 from Chibok.”

President of the Senate, Bukola Saraki, however, called on the President Muhammadu Buhari-led administration to ensure the release of the last Dapchi girl with the insurgents.

He said, “I commend and thank all our colleagues for all their efforts from this chamber and for standing with the people of Yobe State.

“We commend the government, the President and the people of Yobe State for the efforts they put in the rescue of the girls.

“But there is one more girl from Dapchi, which all the security agencies must do their best to see that this girl is brought back, as well as the 112 Chibok girls.”
