Protester: 1st Lady Orders Arrests

A leader of a protest march for 276 missing schoolgirls said that
Nigeria’s First Lady ordered her and another protest leader arrested
Monday, expressed doubts there was any kidnapping and accused them of
belonging to the Islamic insurgent group blamed for the abductions.

Saratu Angus Ndirpaya of Chibok town said State Security Service agents
drove her and protest leader Naomi Mutah Nyadar to a police station
Monday after an all-night meeting at the presidential villa in Abuja,
the capital. She said police immediately released her but that Nyadar
remains in detention. The national police spokesman referred a
journalist to the spokeswoman for police in Abuja. Reached on the phone,
the spokeswoman said she was driving and could not immediately respond.

Ndirpaya says First Lady Patience Jonathan accused them of fabricating
the abductions. “She told so many lies, that we just wanted the
government of Nigeria to have a bad name, that we did not want to
support her husband’s rule,” she said in a telephone interview with The
Associated Press.
She said other women at the meeting cheered and chanted “yes, yes,” when
Mrs. Jonathan accused them of belonging to the Boko Haram terrorist
network. “They said we are Boko Haram, and that Mrs. Nyadar is a member
of Boko Haram.” She said Nyadar and herself do not have daughters among
those abducted, but are supporting the mothers of kidnapped daughters.
The mass abduction and failure to rescue the girls now in a fourth week
of captivity is a source of deep embarrassment to Jonathan and his
government, which is accused of insensitivity to the girls’ plight and
not doing enough to rescue them.
In a televised “media chat” Sunday night, Jonathan promised his
administration is doing everything possible. On Friday he created a
presidential committee to go to the affected Borno state to work with
the community on a strategy for the release.
Asked if his government was negotiating with the abductors, Jonathan
said it was impossible to negotiate with people who do not identify
themselves, and noted that Boko Haram have not claimed responsibility
for the mass abduction, though some girls who have escaped from them
said their captors identified themselves as Boko Haram.
Police say more than 300 girls and young women were abducted April 15 from Chibok school and that 276 remain in captivity.
