Set up special military taskforce to rescue Chibok girls – Edwin Clark to Tinubu

Elder statesman and Ijaw leader Edwin Clark has urged President Bola Ahmed Tinubu to establish a task force dedicated to rescuing the kidnapped schoolgirls from Chibok, Borno State, along with others held in captivity.

Speaking at a press conference in Abuja to mark the tenth anniversary of the girls’ abduction, Clark emphasized the need for the task force to coordinate rescue operations with courage. He criticized past administrations for their failure to rescue the abducted girls and urged Tinubu to be bold in his efforts, leaving no stone unturned to secure their release and establish a legacy for his administration.

Clark highlighted that approximately 90 girls remain in captivity, stressing that the nation cannot abandon its citizens in such dire circumstances. He called for the appointment of a special task force comprising brave, competent, and transparent individuals, free from nepotism.

Expressing concern over the prolonged captivity of the girls, Clark urged Tinubu’s government to demonstrate seriousness in their rescue efforts, citing the successful rescue of an American hostage in a similar situation. He emphasized that Nigeria has the capability to achieve similar feats and urged Tinubu to prioritize the rescue mission.
