Assuring the international communities the Minister of Information and Culture, Lai Mohammed has said that the federal government is still tracking down and working towards the release of the abducted Chibok girls remaining in the Boko Haram camp with its Swiss partners.
Disclosing this in Georgetown University, Department of African Studies, Washington DC, said that the case of the abducted Chibok girls has never been closed or dismissed by the government.
“A few days ago was the fifth anniversary of the abducted girls and that means they were kidnapped more than a year before President Muhammadu Buhari administration came into power.
“It was the engagement of this government that led to the release of 107 of the girls and what I can assure you is that the government is still engaging in trying to find out where the girls are and what has become of them.
“However, some of these negotiations are very delicate due largely to the fact that it takes a lot of time and there is a sort of fractionalisation within the terrorist group.
“We are still working with our Swiss partners and the others every day so that we can be able to track where these girls are, what has become of them and how many are left.
“However, these are not something you can disclose, anyhow because of the sensitivity,” been quoted by NAN.
The government was responsible for the reintegration of the 107 girls released, saying that reports has been received, that handful of the girls are performing well in their individual areas, answering the questions asked on reintegration and sponsorship.
