Freeing remaining Chibok girls my priority, says Buhari


FREEPRESS – Nigerian President Muhammadu Buhari said Tuesday the “key priority” of his administration is to ensure that the remaining kidnapped Chibok school girls are released by their abductors.

“We will continue to make the safe release of the remaining Chibok girls a priority and will welcome any kind of support from any quarters to make this happen,” Buhari said in Katowice, Poland, at a bilateral meeting with Swiss President Alain Berset, on the margins of the UN Climate Change Conference, COP24.

The 276 Chibok school girls were kidnapped four years ago in Borno by the Islamist terrorist group, Boko Haram.

The president in his campaign in 2014 assured that the girls will be brought back home safely, but till date about 112 of the Chibok girls are still languishing in captivity, despite all assurances by the Nigerian government that they would be rescued and reunited with their families.
