– The Nigerian senators visited the 21 Chibok girls recently abducted and released by the deadly Boko Haram sect
– One of the girls, Gloria, appeals to the Nigerian army not to bomb the Sambisa forest as the remaining girls may be killed
The Nigerian Air Force should stop the bombardment of the Sambisa forest, the notorious stronghold of the deadly Boko Haram sect, one of the rescued Chibok girls said.
According to her, the remaining Chibok girls in captivity are located there and the army may kill them instead of the insurgents.
Gloria, one of the girls, reveals this in a personal explanation to the senate leader Ali Ndume when he paid a visit to the released girls.
He said: “On my way to them, I didn’t know what to say but on getting, they composed a song for me.” “I didn’t know what to do, I ended up crying.
Gloria, their leader, ended up consoling me. “She said I should talk to the air force to be careful on carrying out air raids so as not to kill the remaining Chibok girls. On behalf of Chibok thank you the whole world, thank you for the worthy support.”
At the same time, Biodun Olujimi, senator representing Ekiti South, said the most heartbreaking thing was that the girls “were not touched all the time they were there (with Boko Haram).” “The time has come for government to come out to say how far we have gone on Boko Haram,” Olujimi said.
Binta Garba, the senator from Adamawa, said the released of the 21 girls gives hope that the rest would be found. “We need them to undergo physiological cleansing because of the trauma they have gone true. The government should guarantee the security of Nigerians home and abroad,” she added.
The 21 Chibok schoolgirls, recently released by terrorist group Boko Haram due to negotiations with the federal government, were reunited with their families amid tearful scenes over the last weekend.
The Nigerian authorities said that the negotiations will continue to free the remaining girls, but some sources only 83 out of the 197 left are being negotiated for. Another girl, Amina Ali Nkeki, was found on the outskirts of Sambisa forest in May.
