President Buhari pledges to ensure rescue of remaining Chibok schoolgirls

Agonized Chibok parents still pray for missing girls 3 years later

Groups, parents of the chibok girls are using this occasion to call for the immediate release of the girls, also not forgetting the remaining Dapchi schoolgirl, Leah Sharibu who is also still held in captivity by the Boko Haram.

The 19-year-old was discovered with a four-month-old baby and a man she described as her husband near Boko Haram's Sambisa Forest enclave.

The President urged the parents to keep their hopes alive on the return of their daughters, noting that the recovery of more than a 100 of the girls that were kidnapped through the Federal Government's determined effort should give confidence that all "hope is not lost".

He attributed it to setbacks in the negotiation between the Federal Government and the Boko Haram sect, which he said arose from internal disagreement among the abductors.

In the 20-minute video where at least 14 of the girls were filmed, the one that spoke also revealed that they have all been married by the terrorist group's leader, Abubakar Shekau.

President Buhari re-affirmed that the government remains focused and determined to see the girls return to their homes, urging the parents to be expectant of more good news in due course.

Buhari, who is seeking re-election next year, told the Chibok girls' parents their daughters "will never be forgotten or abandoned to their fate".

In May 2016 the Nigerian army confirms the first of the schoolgirls has been found.

Boko Haram, whose name roughly translates into, "Western education is forbidden", seeks to establish an Islamic state in northeast Nigeria, though it has spread its terror across mountainous borders over the years into Niger, Chad and Cameroon, all of which surround the Lake Chad Basin.

One hundred and seven were returned in mid-March.

Some Dapchi parents were in Chibok on Saturday in a show of solidarity. We will continue to persist, and the parents should please not give up.

He added that despite such claims, the government went ahead to secure the release of some of them.

The Boko Haram conflict is in its tenth year, but shows little sign of ending.

Nigerian authorities have made a commitment to make schools safer and more resilient to attack, and UNICEF stands with them to implement the Safe Schools Declaration, by which Nigeria commits to protecting schools and universities from violence and military use during armed conflict.

"What happened in Chibok should have served as a wake-up call to the Nigerian government".

The government needed to deliver "meaningful action on behalf of all these victims of Boko Haram's crimes" and "far more support must also be provided for past victims", she added.
