Shehu Sani Suggests Options To Rescue Chibok Girls
Senator Shehu Sani has advised the Federal government to explore the option of negotiation and the use of force to rescue the missing Chibok girls.
This is coming two years after the Boko Haram militants kidnapped some school girls in the Chibok community of Borno State in northeast Nigeria.
President Muhammadu Buhari had on Thursday said that, as a parent and leader of the country, he understood the torment, frustration and anxiety of the parents and would not spare any effort to ensure the safe return of the girls.
Negotiation And Use Of Force
Giving his opinion on Sunrise Daily, Senator Sani recommended three options that the Federal government could explore to ensure the safe return of the missing girls.
“First of all is to explore the negotiation option which is dialogue, and secondly is to continue to use force hoping that we can raid the camp and rescue the girls from the insurgents.
“The third aspect is to use force and still open the door for negotiation, which is the one which I prefer because the use of force (the military option) is still a clear message to the insurgents that they cannot win the military,” he said.
The lawmaker, however, highlighted the fact that the girls were on the terrorists’ camp as hostages and cautioned that “attempt to use force to rescue them naturally comes with consequences”.
He maintained that the available option was to continue to explore all options that would make it possible to get the missing girls back home safe and alive.
