Aisha Yesufu, human rights activist and co-convener of the "BringBackOurGirls" campaign, took a swing at Godwin Emefiele, Governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN), asking him to use his "expert investigative knowledge" to track down Abubakar Shekau, leader of the Boko Haram sect, and the bandits who abducted students from the Government Science Secondary School, Kankara, Katsina Sta Staka.

Yesufu, who referred to the recent abduction and release of 344 students from Kankara school, said he would have been seen doing a good job if the CBN Governor had employed the kind of skills he did while tracking and freezing the protesters' accounts in trying to find out the source of funds for the terrorists and bandits.

In a series of tweets she posted on Friday, December 18, during the recent #EndSARS protest, Yesufu chided the Emefiele for deploying his information and blocking the bank accounts of protesters who were alleged to encourage insecurity, but chose to remain silent during the insecurity caused by the abductors of Shekau and Katsina.

“Where was Emiefele’s expert knowledge on terrorism when #KankaraBoys were abducted? How come we did not hear Emefiele’s voice the way we did during #EndSARS protests? When will Emefiele call out Shekau for terrorism?” Yesufu tweeted.

In other tweets, she wrote:

“How come the State Security Service, also known as DSS, did not intercept intelligence on the Kankara abduction? Where is the might they bring to those holding the government to account? Where is the might they used against protesters?

“Miyetti Allah negotiated with terrorists on behalf of the government. In what capacity? Is Miyetti Allah a trained negotiating organisation or a fellow terror organisation
