Family Of UNIMAID Student, Dalep Dachiya, Killed By Boko Haram Calls For Justice

Published

on

The family of the 200-level UNIMAID student, Dalep Dachiya, who was recently murdered by the Boko Haram Insurgent, has beckoned on the Nigeria Government to get the killers of their son.

Dalep was heading back to school on 9th January when he was abducted by the insurgents. A video of his killing was released yesterday 22nd January by the insurgents.

The head of the family, Pa David Dachiya, held a press conference in Jos today. He said though the family has accepted their fate and left everything to God, fishing out and dealing with the killers of their son would bring relief to the bereaved family and everyone involved.

He urged the government to intensify its effort to bring to an end the continuous attacks in Plateau State.

"As a family, we just want to thank
God for everything; we believe that what happened, happened for good. But we
want to strongly call on the government to fish out the killers of our son. He
was just an innocent boy who was killed for no reason. We equally urge the
government to intensify efforts in fighting insurgency and all forms of
insecurity in the country" he said
'' This morning, we appeal to the government for action
because the statement that was made in the video is quite touching. If an eight
years old child can tell the whole world that they are revenging what Plateau
had done to their forefathers in Borno which I don’t know apart from hearing
from him, I have never heard of it.
An eight years old boy cannot say that some elderly people
have incited him to do it. We are in the last days. We are not provocating
anybody but our prayer as a family is that God should touch our leaders
otherwise all our people from Plateau will not be able to travel to Maiduguri
or Borno in general because that statement has made it known that anybody who
is going there would be killed if they know that you are from Plateau.
Our appeal as a family is that the government should do something to stabilize what is happening, we pray that God will see us through.” he said
