The Director General of the National Task Force (NATFORCE), Dr Emmanuel Osita has urged former Education Minister, Oby Ezekwesili to bring back the abducted Chibok girls herself.

Osita made the comment on Tuesday, February 9, 2016, during a briefing in Abuja, The Tribune reports.

“There are people who sit in Abuja here singing bring back our girls, it should not be a music that people dance to on the streets,” he said.

“Anybody can go to Chibok and bring back our girls. You can go to Sambisa or Chibok and bring back our girls. It is not using it to make money as a non-governmental organisation (NGO) and you are sitting here.

“Buhari was not in power when our girls were abducted. It was an inherited problem and he is telling everybody to keep calm that he is going to do his best.

“It is not something somebody can do over night, if they can do it overnight, Ezekwesili can go to Sambisa and tell Bokoh Haram, ‘give us our girls’. So, I am calling on Obasanjo to call Ezekwesili to order. They should stop causing problems in Nigeria,” he said.

Osita also accused Obasanjo of promoting corruption and crime during his tenure.

Meanwhile, Obasanjo has said that anyone promising the Chibok girls’ return is telling lies.
