God Brought You Back, Aisha Buhari Tells Freed Chibok Girls

12 Mai 2017

The Nigerian army says it will not relent in its effort to secure the release of the remaining Chibok schoolgirls and other Nigerians in Boko Haram captivity.

They are among thousands of people, including other young women, who have been kidnapped by Boko Haram (which translates to "Western education is forbidden in the Hausa language) in the last eight years of its insurgency in Nigeria".

The 82 Chibok girls freed Saturday will not return to school in September because they are undergoing medical and psychological treatment, said presidential spokesman Garba Shehu.

Leaders of Chibok community, under the aegis of Kibaku Area Development Association, have faulted a negotiator, Zannah Mustapha, for saying that some abducted schoolgirls refused to be part of a group of 82 girls freed at the weekend.

On the previously released 21 Chibok girls, she said the girls were reunited with their families within one week of their return in October 2016.

Boko Haram is thought to still be holding more than 100 of the original 276 girls taken from a school in north-eastern Nigeria in 2014.

According to her, most of the girls prefer to be within the government facility because they don't want to be reminded of their experiences having to go to their community.

Sharif will also hold bilateral meetings with several other heads of state on the sidelines of the forum. The forum will comprise a High Level Dialogue and Leaders' Roundtable.

The wife of the president also thanked relevant agencies involved in the release of the girls.

Holt said that his government had gone from the place of, "not being on the same page with Nigeria, to a place where we see things very much in the same terms".

He said, "To be honest, without appearing to speak for Boko Haram, from the outlook of these girls, they appear better in terms of their physical outlook than the 21 we received before".

Speculation about the president's health has been growing in Nigeria after he missed meetings and abstained from media appearances.Some have criticised the media spectacle surrounding the release.

Even though it was the Chibok schoolgirls that captured the world's attention, Boko Haram's cruelty extends far beyond that.

People read news paper headlines, including stories on the names of Nigerian Chibok kidnapped girls released in Abuja, Nigeria. She added that parents "are free to come and see them anytime" and that the girls are at the rehab centre "of their own free will, nobody is compelling them to be here".

She said allowing unnecessary visits would jeopardise the release of the remaining girls and other captives. They will likely begin a months-long rehabilitation program run by the government, which the 24 girls who already escaped are now undergoing.
