NUPENG TASKS SECURITY AGENCIES ON MISSING SCHOOL GIRLS

The Nigeria Union of Petroleum and Natural Gas Workers (NUPENG) is worried and disturbed about the conflicting figures of the missing school girls of Government Secondary School, Chibok, in Borno State.

It calls on the security agencies to work in tandem with the Borno State Government, the school authorities to authenticate the actual number of the school girls missing and spread their dragnets to locate them unharmed.

The Union calls the present situation as unacceptable and embarrassing of the inability of the security agencies to locate the whereabouts of the missing school children after over a week of their abduction.

The Union states that the report states that 234 school girls are missing and not 129, which calls for concern and goes to show the inefficiency and failure of the security forces to arrest the Boko Haram scourge.

The Union also condemns the recent attack on another Government Girls Secondary School in Yana, in Bauchi State and commends the Governor for the quick evacuation.

The Union calls for a change of strategy in combating terrorism by applying modern day technology to deal with the situation, as it is done in Israel.   We should call for foreign assistance in dealing with the spate of terrorism in the country.

The Union states that the sponsors of the terrorists must be identified and made to face the wrath of the law, no matter their position in the society.

The Union also wants effective policing of our vast porous borders which serves as a conduit for the hit and run activities.  We also call on the Federal Government to dialogue with our neighbours to see how they can help prevent the marauders from escaping into their countries.

The Union appeals to the conscience of the terrorists to release the innocent school girls unhurt so that they can re-unite with their families.

IGWE ACHESE

President
