While the world is celebrating the return of a few number of girls, Ekiti state governor Ayo Fayose is still insisting that the whole Chibok girls story is a ruse and the girls rescued by the federal government were trained actresses employed to deceive Nigerians.
Fayose made this unconfirmed accusations in an interview with Channels TV.
He said, “The story of Chibok girls is a ruse. I have been saying this, a complete rouse. Those girls were trained to act for Nigerians. I am telling you. This story will come back one day. I don’t hide to say it. I said it before.”Continuing with his statement, he added,“‘Let me say it again I stand here to say it clearly that the Chibok girls story was orchestrated to take President Jonathan out of office. You say over 200 girls are missing. They are Physics students. When they were found, they could not speak English. If they say these Chibok girls have been found, what are they still doing in the custody of the Federal government. If my son was taken away for over 2 years, the joy of my son coming home alone is enough.”
Fayose further stated that the crying girls and their rejoicing parents were rehearsed as seen in theater plays.
“You can rehearse with a parent to act and even cry. Its all theater. Have you not seen people doing theater? Don’t you see people you see about a minute ago crying? This is another theater. Do you recall when the Chibok organization wanted to take the President on and it became an issue, two or three week after, some of the girls were found”, he concluded.
