I stopped reading Salomon Kadiri's at this point:
"The abduction of Chibok girls occurred on 14 April 2014, which gave a time space of 12 years. Before 14th April 2014, there was no known abduction of girls by 'Boko Haram(?).' A commonsense questions that should be asked are, did 'Boko Haram's(?)' men sexual appetites die between 2002 and 13th April 2014 but were suddenly awoken on April 14, 2014? If easy access to sex is what attracted Northern Youths to 'Boko Haram(?)', how could access to sex have been fulfilled through the abduction of only three-hundred Chibok girls? Apart from the Chibok girls, why were there no further kidnappings of girls since..."
More than 700 women and girls have been rescued from BH dens since Buhari came to power, none of them identified to be among the Chibok victims. Many more are said to be in captivity.
There is no record of when the kidnappings of these non-Chibok females took place, unlike the Chibok haul; these could have before or after 14 April 2014, and this effectively knocks off the only leg of the argument that was standing at the point I stopped reading.
I believe a new and more sustainable argument is called for.
