Lagos lawyer, Femi Falana (SAN), on Tuesday asked President Muhammadu Buhari sack all those responsible for the abduction of students of Government Girls Science and Technical College, Dapchi, Yobe State. The rights activist said people responsible for the withdrawal of troops on ground should be sanctioned.
Falana stated these during the #BringBackOurGirls Group’s rally at the Presidential Villa, Abuja.
He said: “Section 14 (2) of the Constitution provides that the security and welfare of every citizen of Nigeria shall be the primary purpose of government. Secondly, Section 35 of the Constitution guarantees the right to personal liberty. In other words, no citizen of Nigeria can be abducted or detained illegally without a reaction from the government. So, that duty has been breached in the case of Chibok and Dapchi girls and why it is worse in this case is that having regard to the facts and circumstances of the developments in that part of the country, it is intolerable and unacceptable that the same manner of abduction took place.
