  • 21 Chibok Girls Released After 913 Days In Boko Haram Den
  • Freed Chibok Girls Traded For 5 Top Boko Haram Commanders In DSS Custody

A top military source said the Nigerian FG freed some top Boko Haram commanders for the 21 Chibok girls, who were released by the insurgents at Banki, a border town between Nigeria and Cameroon.

The released girls were among the over 200 schoolgirls, who were kidnapped by Boko Haram terrorists from the Government Secondary School, Chibok, Borno State, on April 14, 2014.

Most of the girls wept profusely when Vice-President Yemi Osinbajo met them on Thursday at the Abuja headquarters of the Department of State Services after the girls’ arrival in the Federal Capital Territory.

The 21 girls were released after 913 days in captivity.

A security source said five Boko Haram commanders were released in exchange for the 21 Chibok girls.

The source stated,

“Five top commanders of the Boko Haram were traded for the released Chibok girls.

“Those released are not among those earlier released by the military in the North-East on October 1, 2016. These ones are confirmed Boko Haram commanders, who have been in the custody of the DSS.”

The source, who spoke to The PUNCH on Thursday, said the 21 girls were discovered by troops of the 21 Brigade of the Nigerian Army, which supervises the military units in Banki, Borno State, while they were filing out of the forest.

“I think it was a planned operation which involved the DSS. The released Boko Haram commanders were not in the custody of the military,” the source added.

The source explained that the insurgents released the girls and left them to wander into an area where they could be sighted by people and security personnel in the area.

“The girls were released in the forest at Banki. Obviously, the abductors took them close to where they could be sighted and gave them direction and left them,” he stated.

    Emaciated and traumatized as the girls appear to be, we thank God for their lives and trust God the mighty healer to complete their healing process. Good job Fed Govt. please intensify and expedite action towards the release of the rest of the girls so the families can have closure and perhaps begin their healing.

    How are we sure the supposed remaining girls are still alive, hale and hearty?

    The FG has to swing into action, first; attend to the immediate needs of the released girls by making available special Doctors, Trauma experts, Psychologists, to attend to them.

    When they are medically and phisically fit to talk, they can then get some neccessary info from them that might help in some ways to rescuing they rest girls, or so I though.

    So all the so called intelligent personnels we claim to have in this country could not detect where these girls are and save them until a bargin has to be reached and 5 top destroyers had to be released in exchange for some of the captured girls? Its a big shame on Nigeria so called special intelligent personnels.

    However, I wanna say Thank God for these once, while looking forward for the release and salvation of the rest alive girls still held hostage by those demons in human form.

    I take a stroll…

    As we thank God for the release of the girls let us bear in mind that the 5 commanders released will still go out there and start maiming, killing and destroying the lives of many more people. i still maintain that the boko haram has murdered sleep and they shall sleep no more. Our prayer now should be let those released commanders meet their Waterloo in their next operation.

    Be guided.
