The Senator that represents Borno North Federal Constituency in the upper chamber of the National Assembly, Senator Ahmed Zanna, has come out in the open to declare that he knows where the dreaded Boko Haram sect are hiding the kidnapped female students of the Government Secondary School, Chibok, Borno State, but that he will not divulge his knowledge to anyone.
Speaking during an interview with Isha Sesay of the CNN, Senator Zanna said that said he is pained by the fact that the Federal Government had, in the past, refused to listen to him or do anything whenever he gave out privileged information about the activities of the insurgents.
The lawmaker who said he was both happy and sad when the sect released video showing the girls alive, said that the government had disappointed him in the past by not taking pro-active actions whenever he gave hints on the positions of the insurgents.
This is what he said:
I won’t tell where they (girls) are being kept again because I have told the Federal Government where they are likely being kept before the video was released.
Now that I saw the video, the vegetation in the clip confirmed what I have told them earlier.
If they want to know where they are being kept, then the government should remember what I told them before. What I can tell you is that the girls are no longer here in Chibok.
I have been constantly in touch with the security agencies, telling them the developments, the movement of the girls from one place to the other and then the splitting of the girls and eventually the marriage of these girls by the insurgents.
What bothers me most is that whenever I informed them where these girls were, after two to three days, they will be moved from that place to another and still, I will go back and inform them that see, this is what is happening.
I lost hope two days ago when I found out that some of them were moved to Chad and Cameroon.
Actually, some of them moved through the Mandara Mountain that is in Gwoza and some of them are just a stone throw from their barracks, even now as I am talking to you, some of them are in Kolofata, which is in Cameroon but about 15 kilometres or even less to the borders.
Can someone listen to Senator Zanna and rescue these girls?
