Clark calls for special taskforce to rescue Chibok girls

Pa Edwin Clark, leader of the Pan-Niger Delta Forum, PANDEF, has urged the Federal Government to appoint a special task force to ensure the rescue of the remaining Chibok girls held by Boko Haram.

The elder statesman made the call while briefing newsmen in Abuja on Monday at a ceremony to mark the Chibok girls’ 10th anniversary in captivity.

While expressing displeasure over the failure of past administrations to rescue the girls, Clark urged President Bola Tinubu to leave no stone unturned to secure the release of the girls.

“About 90 of them are still missing after 10 years. This should be a source of worry and concern to any government. Tinubu should appoint a special task force with brave soldiers, who are competent, transparent and not nepotistic.

“Their main duty will be to travel at all times to Sambisa Forest, or wherever these citizens are, to look for these girls and rescue them.

“In giving this advice, I also want to add that a time limit should be given to them to carry out this task,” he said.
