The freed Chibok Girls are calling on the Government to now strive for the release of all the girls that Boko Haram is currently holding. According to them, Boko Haram is holding many more than just the girls who were taken from Chibok. They said that the Sambisa forest is a place of sorrow. This is because many of the girls who have been taken captive in the years that Boko Haram have become strong, are still in captivity in Northern Nigeria. These freed girls are saying that they were released because the government cared about them due to their affiliation with a college. They say that the government has not worried about those who have no such affiliation and have forgotten about them. We pray that the government would fight for the rights and freedom of all girls stolen by Boko Haram.
2017-07-23 Nigeria (InformationNigeria)- The Chibok Secondary School girls, who were released by the Boko Haram insurgents in May 2017, have appealed to the Federal Government to devote attention to the release of other abducted non-schoolgirls who are still under the captivity of the dreaded terrorists, Sunday Punch reports.
The girls were released after the Federal Government’s successful negotiation with the notorious sect.
The girls, who spoke through their leader, Miss Hauwa Ntakai, made the call while speaking with journalists during a special luncheon organised by the Federal Ministry of Women Affairs and Social Development in Abuja on Saturday.
The Chibok schoolgirl noted that government was focusing more attention on the release of the abducted schoolgirls because they were captured inside their college.
She urged the government to also direct its attention to other girls in Boko Karam captivity because, according to her, “the Sambisa Forest is a place of sorrow.”
