The Federal Government has assured the United Nations that everything is being done to ensure the freedom of other Chibok schoolgirls abducted by the Boko Haram terrorists.
The Permanent Secretary, Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Amb. Sola Enikanolaiye, disclosed this in his address to the UN Security Council’s open debate on ”Women and peace and security: Sexual violence in conflict” in New York.
Enikanolaiye explained that after their freedom, the Federal Government would also ensure the girls were freed from the ideological grips of the terrorist group.
”We seize this opportunity to assure you that following the recent release of 82 of the abducted Chibok school girls, government has intensified its efforts at securing the release of the abducted girls and the remaining ones, including freeing them from the ideological grips of Boko Haram terrorists.”
”Having regained their freedom, it is equally important that they regain their self-esteem and be assisted to return to their families and back to their schools.”
Enikanolaiye also disclosed to the audience of the council’s open debate that emergency teams of psycho-social counsellors and health professionals have been dispatched to the Northeast to assist with the profiling of victims for appropriate therapies.topics from
