Simmilarly, Vice-President Yemi Osinbajo has spoken on the reason he and President Muhammadu Buhari have not visited Dapchi in Yobe state where one hundred and ten students were abducted two weeks ago.

Both men have been criticised for not paying condolence visits to places where abductions and avoidable deaths were recorded in recent times in Benue, Zamfara and Taraba.

Speaking with journalists over the weekend, Osinbajo said while the government has expressed sympathy with the people, condolence visits alone would not solve the problem.
