Report: Remaining 113 Chibok Girls Not Willing To Return


Few  days after the release of additional 82 Chibok girls, credible sources have raised alarm that some of the girls said they were not willing to come back, on the grounds that they had gotten married to Boko Haram insurgents with some having children.

However, a member of the Bring Back Our Girls(BBOG) group, Ayo Obe, has called on the federal government to free the remaining 113 girls still being held by the insurgents despite their reasons.

Speaking on Arise Television last night, she said: “Even though there are reports that some of the girls are unwilling to come along with the 82 freed girls because they may have been radicalised, the government should not be discouraged.  It should rather do its best to recover them.

‘’When they have been recovered, deradicalised and no longer under coercion, that’s only when they can be judged by their action.

“For now, they all should be freed and reunited with their families. Government owes its citizens a duty of security. It is government’s duty to free the girls. Though we have passed the half way mark. What we need to understand is there are still 113 unaccounted Chibok girls out there,” she added.

She said government should do its best to see that the 82 freed girls were given full rehabilitation so that they can be reintegrated into the society.
