Boko Haram Returns Dozens of Schoolgirls Kidnapped in Nigeria

Kidnapped schoolgirls 'freed in Nigeria'

Her freed schoolmates have been telling her parents she refused to convert to Islam, at the insistence of Boko Haram.

The 15-year-old was among more than 100 schoolgirls who were abducted by a Boko Haram faction more than a month ago in the rural town of Dapchi in northeastern Nigeria.

Five girls have reportedly died.

Nigerian president Muhammadu Buhari on Friday hosted the recently released Dapchi girls at the presidency in Abuja.

It was the biggest mass abduction since Chibok.

While protest marches, newspaper columns and grandiose open prayers by pastors have often helped where government detained a citizen, this one calls for a more sober approach because Boko Haram is a very different quantity.

The 2019 Oyo governorship aspirant on the platform of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) said, "It is curious to note that the abductors of the girls returned them the same way they were taken away with no security network to check the movement".

It said: "So, any step taken by the government to end the current security challenges in the country can not be too costly as long as it is done in accordance with worldwide best practices".

The Minister of Information and Culture, Alhaji Lai Mohammed disclosed this in Lagos at a media briefing to give update and clarifications on the release of the schoolgirls in Dapchi, Yobe state. This is especially because sources involved in the negotiations told Daily Trust that the girls' release has opened a window into more talks to ensure that Boko Haram, or at least its Abu Musab Albarnawi faction, accepts a ceasefire and lays down its arms.

We are determined as never before, to bring back our remaining Chibok daughters.

"Nobody was contacting me, I did not talk to anyone, no one told me about the situation", he said. "This strategy paid off as the girls have been released without any incidents", the President added.

According to the BBC Hausa Service, security forces confirmed to the girl's father that Leah was released and was on her way to Dapchi to meet with her parents on Saturday.
