The Sergeant who revealed that the Dapchi girls kidnap was staged has been disowned by the Nigerian Army.
Sergeant David Bako claimed in a viral message on social media over the weekend that the abduction of 110 girls from Government Girls Secondary School, Dapchi, Yobe state, on February 19 was staged by officials of President Muhammadu Buhari administration.
Sergeant Bako had confessed to being part of a 16-man team who rehearsed and hatched the abduction of the schoolgirls for the sum of N80 million. He claimed some top loyalists of President Buhari were part of the scheme.
In a statement released on Sunday, Brigadier General Texas Chukwu, Army’s Director of Army Public Relations, said there was no officer with the name David Bako either as a serving or dismissed in the list of personnel of the military.
He went further and urged Nigerians to disregard the confession of Mr. Bako who also claimed he had traveled out of Nigeria to avoid prosecution on the account of his revelation.
