ABUJA – The federal government has said it is working behind the scenes to ensure the release of 113 Chibok girls.
Political Adviser to acting President Yemi Osinbajo announced this Tuesday in Abuja during a protest by the Bring Back Our Girls BBOG movement.

“There are so many things awe are doing. We have not foegotten them. Negotiations are ongoing”, he said.

In April 2014 by the Boko Haram had abducted 276 girls from an all female public secondary school in Chibok. Of the figure, 57 escaped leaving 219 missing. Of the 219, 106 are back, while 113 remain missing for over three years.

Leader of the BBOG, Oby Ezekwesili had faulted the federal government and police authorities for also keeping quiet about the abduction of 15 police women, urging accelerated action to rescue them.

BBOG recalled that “in his inaugural speech on May 29, 2015 President Muhammadu Buhari pledged, ‘But we cannot claim to have defeated Boko Haram without rescuing the Chibok girls and all other innocent persons held hostage by insurgents. This government will do all it can to rescue them alive.’ This same pledge was repeated to the Chibok parents by the President on at least 2 occasions in our presence as a movement. It must not be reduced to a partial outcome for some parents”.

The movement expressed dismay at what it described as the absolute lack of capacity to learn from previous mistakes in handling parents, families, and the public who deserve a system of update on rescue operations.
