Dapchi schoolgirls’ release would have make sense to me if… -Orakwusi


The Chairman, Shipowners’ Forum, Barr. Mrs. Margaret Onyema Orakwusi has said that the fact that one of the abducted female student of the Dapchi Science and Technical College is yet to return from the Boko Haram captivity made nonsense of the gains recorded in the release of the girls.

It would be recalled that a total of 110 Dapchi schoolgirls were kidnapped from their school in Dapchi in February and a total of 104 were released recently, five others dead with one of the girls still in Boko Haram captivity on the premise that she refused to denounce Christianity and embrace Islam.

But reacting to the development, Orakwusi opined that her joy would have been full if all of them returned adding that it was so sad that people were not talking about the one girl that has not been returned just because she was proud to be a Christian and she was defending her faith.

“I think we should all rise up and demand the return of that girl. It goes beyond the girl; it is what we all believe in.

“So, I don’t see why noise is not being made. I am happy but my joy will be full when everybody is returned, when nobody should be discriminated against, religion is a thing of mind, I chose to serve my God the way I serve him and this is a little girl.

“So, I think everybody should join hands together and make the government move to return that girl and until she is returned, to me, it is as if nobody has been returned”, she said.
