Jonathan govt secured release of Chibok girls but didn’t publicise it – Reuben Abati

Reuben Abati, former special adviser on media and publicity to then President Goodluck Jonathan, on Wednesday disclosed that former National Security Adviser, NSA, Sambo Dasuki prevented the immediate past government from publishing the release of some Chibok girls abducted by Boko Haram terrorists.

Speaking while anchoring a programme on ARISE TV, Abati said Dasuki advised the Jonathan administration against publicising the release of the kidnapped Chibok girls in order to protect their identities.

According to Abati, “There was headway. We (Jonathan’s government) rescued many of the girls but the advice from the NSA at the time was that we should not publicise it because of the identities of those girls. I witnessed it on many occasions. Those girls were brought to the President.

“He met with them. In fact, some of them were sent to schools in the United States and United Kingdom. There were strict instructions not to publicise it because government thought that the identities of those girls should not be exposed. But l saw you guys making a dance out of the ones you rescued.

“In our time, we rescued some girls but we were under strict instruction not to publicise it. Check the records. The DSS, the intelligence agency, you should ask them. They will have the records.”
