Remaining Dapchi Schoolgirl On Her Way Back - IGP

Remaining Dapchi Schoolgirl On Her Way Back - IGP

The girls, who were released by Boko Haram terrorists on Wednesday, were earlier taken to Abuja where they met with President Muhammad Buhari on Friday.

Also in a chat with Blueprint, father of the yet to be released Dapchi school Girl, Nathan Sharibu, refuted media claim that his daughter Leah had been released by the insurgents.

Idris said he had been scheduled to travel to Dapchi but shelved the trip so as not to jeopardize the girl's release.

The talks on a ceasefire was made known by the Minister of Information and Culture, Lai Mohammed in an email to Reuters on Sunday, outlining the background to the release of more than 104 schoolgirls returned last week by the group after their kidnapping on February 19 from Government Girls' Science and Technical College (GGSTC), Dapchi, Yobe.

However, a video seen by THEWILL has shown that the Moshood was not being truthful when he said the IGP was "misunderstood and misquoted" because Idris actually confirmed that Sharibu was on her way back. The misunderstanding may be as a result of the already released Dapchi schoolgirls expected back home in Yobe State today (Saturday) but could not arrive due to weather condition. Once again, we reject Boko Haram as an Islamic group.

Five of them were said to have died while Sharibu remained in captivity.

On Saturday, soldiers deployed in Dapchi disappeared from the town's checkpoints, raising hopes for Leah's imminent release.

"The town is in high spirits and full of anticipation", Goni said.

He called on President Muhammadu Buhari to as a matter of urgency intervene for the immediate release of the girl. "The IGP could not also proceed to Dapchi because of same weather condition", he stated.

Just one day ago, Aisha Wakil, commonly referred to as Mama Boko Haram, had revealed that Miss Sharibu would be released soon.

Boko Haram has repeatedly targeted schools giving a so-called Western education in the mainly-Muslim region as part of an insurgency that has killed at least 20,000 people and displaced more than 2.6 million since 2009.
