Co-convener of the Bring Back Our Girls (BBOG) campaign Aisha Yesufu has stated that the abduction of Dapchi schoolgirls was scripted to get $1 billion approved to fight Boko Haram.

President Muhammadu Buhari on Wednesday approved the release of $1bn for the procurement of security equipment to fight insurgency.

This was made known to State House correspondents by the Minister of Defence, Mansur Dan-Ali, at the end of a meeting Buhari had with security chiefs at the Presidential Villa, Abuja.

It was also gathered the President asked the security chiefs to intensify efforts aimed at securing the release of Leah Sharibu, the Dapchi schoolgirl still being held by Boko Haram because she allegedly refused to renounce Christianity.

In a tweet, Aisha Yesufu insisted that the abduction, release and refusal of Boko Haram to free Leah Sharibu was scripted.

She wrote: “Dear Nigerian Citizens, this is what the recent heightened attacks by insurgents and killings have been about.

“This is why Dapchi happened. This is why Leah Sharibu is still in captivity. This is why parents had to lose 5 daughters. All for some to make money.”
