The Speaker of the House of Representatives, Mr Yakubu Dogara, on Wednesday, commended President Muhammadu Buhari over the release of the abducted Dapchi school girls in Yobe.

He said the President’s efforts to ensure that the girls were freed from captivity had yielded results, with the hope of ending insurgency in the North East.

He, however, called for proactive steps to forestall recurrence of the incident by security agencies.

He added that “we must remind all those concerned that mass abduction of innocent schoolgirls should never have been allowed to happen in the first place.

"While we await the outcome of the investigation by the House Ad hoc Committee, the House of Representatives will not accept any further excuses or buck passing between the various security agencies.”

The speaker said intelligence gathering must be strengthened to prevent attacks before they occur.

He added that efforts should be intensified to free the remaining Dapchi and Chibok schoolgirls and indeed all those in captivity.
