National Disgrace! See How Popular CNN Journalist Tackled Buhari Over Dapchi Schoolgirls Abduction



President Muhamamdu Buhari has been publicly tackled by a popular CNN reporter, Isha Sesay over the abduction of school girls in Yobe state.

A CNN Africa journalist, Isha Sesay, has described the abduction of over 100 students from Government Girls’ Technical College, Dapchi, Yobe state, by Boko Haram terrorist group, as “a national disgrace”.

President Muhammadu Buhari had earlier described the incident as a “national disaster” , while promising that his government would do its best to ensure that every missing girl is found.

But in a series of tweets, Sesay said Buhari’s description was an “understatement”.

She tweeted:

 “#Nigeria’s President #Buhari calls abduction of #DapchiGirls “a national disaster.” That’s an understatement – it’s a national disgrace. More girls taken – again?? #Yobe #ChibokGirls.”

She added: 

“I want to live in a world where the lives of the #DapchiGirls are held to be just as important as those of kids in other places. A world where everyone is talking about schoolgirls being stolen by terrorists. Is that too much to ask? #Nigeria #Yobe #ChibokGirls.”

Sesay was in Nigeria during the early stage of the abduction of the Chibok girls. She did a series of reports on the plight of the girls and spoke to some of those who fled Boko Haram captivity.
