#NigeriaAt58: Buhari Identifies Boko Haram’s Plans Against Nigerian Children
Boko Haram terrorists have a bad plan for Nigerian children and President Muhammadu Buhari knows it.
They have at different occasions attacked schools in Nigeria’s northeast, forcing parents to withdraw their children from schools.
The latest of such attacks resulted in the abduction of some 110 girls from their school’s dormitory in Dapchi, Yobe State.
One of those girls, Leah Sharibu, was held back by the terrorists when they returned other girls about a month after their abduction.
In President Muhammadu Buhari’s Independence Day speech on Monday, he identified the effect of the acts of terrorism in the northeast.
In what he called the goals of the terrorists, President Buhari said his administration was aware that “the goals of the Boko Haram terrorists include capturing territories, destroying our democracy and denying our children the right to education”.
The President then emphasised that his government would let that happen.
“We will not allow them to succeed," he added.
This speech came days after Leah Sharibu's mother filed an action at the Federal High Court in Lagos, claiming 500 million Naira damages.
Leah has been in Boko Haram captivity since February 19, 2018 and other girls that were released said she was held back because she refused to renounce her Christian faith.
Sharibu was abducted from Government Girls’ Science and Technical College, Dapchi, Yobe State.
