The Borno State government on Thursday denied an online media report that principal of Government Secondary School (GSS) Chibok, Asabe Kwambura, has been appointed a commissioner by Gov. Kashim Shettima.
Ms. Kwambura was in charge of the Chibok school in April 14 when Boko Haram stormed the school and abducted more than 200 girls. The girls remain in captivity more than a year after.
The principal has been accused of conniving with the state government to run the school at the time despite security report that it was unsafe to do so. Isa Gusau, the Special Adviser on Communications Strategy to Mr. Shettima, in a statement in Maiduguri, described the report as “a mischievous joke”.
“In the last one week, we have noticed a very strange information being circulated by some online media platforms claiming that Shettima had nominated Asabe Kwambura, the Principal of GSS, Chibok for the post of the Commissioner of Education.
“We completely ignored the report for what it was, a mischievous joke and cheap blackmail that did not deserve any response, as it was mainly ‘trending’ on the social media,” he said.
