In view of the above statements, Nigerian army head quarter in a statement signed by the Acting Director Defence Information, Brigadier General John Agim, denied this claim and said that they were not informed by Amnesty International. "And what procedures are supposed to be followed in response to an attempted abduction?" she added.
The also challenged the global group to expose the unit they informed about the impending attack. We were not informed...
Agim accused the human rights organization of publishing reports that frustrate the fight against Boko Haram.
The Defence Headquarters has refuted the claims by Amnesty International (AI) that the Nigerian military failed to prevent the abduction of 110 schoolgirls in Yobe State despite being warned.
He assured that the Federal Government will not rest until all the Chibok and Dapchi school girls in the Boko Haram custody are released and reunited with their families.
Nigerian Army also took a swipe at Amnesty International stating that it is not proper for the organisation to denigrate the reputation of Nigeria's security forces.
That was early on Monday 19 February.
"The revelation by this global body has further reinforced our demand that the National Assembly should immediately conduct an independent, comprehensive and system-wide inquest to unravel the truth about this abduction, as many Nigerians still believe that there is more than meet the eyes in this Dapchi abduction saga," he said. The police in Dapchi could not immediately be reached for comment.
However, the military its reaction has dismissed the report describing it as "unfounded".
Campaigners from Bring Back Our Girls movement say Boko Haram used similar tactics in the 2014 Chibok kidnappings for the Dapchi school raid.
Nkeki's daughter, Maimuna, was among 21 girls released after nearly three years in captivity, following negotiations between the Nigerian government and Boko Haram.
Analysts have attributed a financial motive to the Dapchi kidnapping given government ransom payments made to Boko Haram to secure the release of some of the captives from Chibok.
They questioned why the Nigerian government has yet to prioritize security of schools in northeastern Nigeria, where the terror group has wreaked havoc in the last eight years.
AI noted that after the abduction of girls in Chibok, the Safe Schools Initiative (SSI) was introduced and it is now coordinated by the Presidential Committee on the North-East Initiative, but argued that there was no framework to prevent further abductions. Does the government want to keep playing this game with these savages?
Quoting local sources and unnamed security officials, the rights group alleged that the army was aware of the presence of Boko Haram insurgents in Dapchi but failed to mobilize troops to avert what President Muhammadu Buhari later called "a national disaster".
