Reports quoted Nigeria’s Inspector General of Police (IGP) Ibrahim Idris to have on Saturday confirmed that the Boko Haram terrorists will release Leah Sharibu, the only Christian Dapchi School girl still in captivity.
On the contrary, Nigeria Police Force, NPF has released a statement saying the IGP was misquoted.
According to the Statement “the IGP was misunderstood and misquoted. The misunderstanding may be as a result of the already released Dapchi School girls expected back home in Yobe State today but could not arrive due to weather condition. The IGP could not also proceed to Dapchi because of same weather condition.”
“Members of the public and the media (should) disregard the purported statement as not what the IGP meant.”
The Force declared that “it has no information yet on the release of the last Dapchi school girl.”
Earlier reports said IGP Idris addressed journalists in Maiduguri the Borno State capital.
Aledeh’s Northern Nigeria Bureau Chief, Gbenga Akingbule was there when the IGP said “I would have gone to Dapchi today(Saturday) but by the time I fly in with a helicopter and police escort, they(terrorists) may think I’m trying to break the arrangement”.
Meanwhile, President Muhammadu Buhari had promised to bring back the remaining abducted Chibok girl.
