The Minister of Information and Culture, Lai Mohammed, has taken a swipe on some Nigerians who have started agitating for the release of about 344 schoolboys abducted at the Government Secondary Scholl Kankara, Katsina State.
Recall that the schoolboys had since been rescued by the Katsina State government after a fruitful negotiation facilitated by Governor Bello Matawalle of Zamfara State.
Addressing newsmen on Friday in Abuja, the minister described as shameful how these Nigerians could go “as far as denigrating their government and country in the most uncouth and irresponsible manner”.
According to him, “who have started trading and politicking with the #hashtag ‘BringBackOurBoys’ can now go home, as our boys have been brought back, even before their dubious campaign could take off”.
The minister, therefore, said that the release of these school boys is a testament to the importance the President Muhammadu Buhari led administration attaches to the security and safety of all Nigerians.
