RESCUED CHIBOK GIRLS: NHRC GIVES KUDOS TO FG

Posted: 2017-05-08


The National Human Rights Commission has commended the efforts of the Federal Government and other stakeholders who were instrumental to the release of 82 Chibok Girls.

The Acting Executive Secretary of the Commission, Mrs. Ovrawah gave this commendation while reacting to the news of the rescue of 82 Chibok girls held in captivity by the Boko Haram since 2014. She described the rescue of the girls as "a feat that will re-unite the girls with their families after three years of traumatic separation".

Mrs. Ovrawah noted that many families have lost contacts with their loved ones and also means of livelihoods, aside from thousands of others who have lost their lives due to insurgency in the North East.

She urged the Federal Government to continue with its strong commitment for the realization of the rescue of the remaining 113 girls and other citizens who are still held in captivity by the terrorists.

The NHRC boss further stated that she is hopeful that the rescued girls would be given the best attention they deserve. "I do not have any doubt in my mind that the Government will provide all the required medical and psychological evaluation and support to the girls to enable them re integrate back into the society" she emphasized.
