Chibok girls: FG, Boko Haram talks halted

At least 1000 children in Nigeria abducted by militant group since 2013: UNICEF

This starts by doing more to secure the release of the hundreds still being held, including the remaining Chibok girls and Leah Sharibu, the only Dapchi girl still in captivity.

The Presidency said the claim by Salkida is not known to the Nigerian government.

Mr Salkida is believed to have access to Boko Haram, the terror group that kidnapped about 217 girls from their school in GSS Chibok in 2014.

Relatives of missing school girls react in Dapchi in the northeastern state of Yobe, after an attack on the village by Boko Haram, Nigeria February 23, 2018.

Mr Salkida claimed that after he had conducted in-depth investigation he discovered numerous girls died during crossfire with security forces.

He said the 15 surviving girls had been married off, "indoctrinated and might no longer be interested in returning home".

"Today, my painstaking investigations on the #Chibokschoolgirls revealed that just a handful of the 113 #ChibokGirls are alive".

"Many of the girls have died as a result of crossfires and bombardments of the security forces that no doubt were intent on rescuing them". Despite pressure at home and overseas, government efforts to rescue around 100 of the girls still being held have so far failed. My investigations also revealed that they are no longer under the control of Abubakar Shekau.

However, the Senior Special Assistant to the President on Media and Publicity, Garba Shehu debunked Salkida's claims in a statement in Abuja on Saturday.

City is 13 points clear at the top with six matches to play and could be confirmed as champion this weekend. However, Spurs will most certainly not just lie down and let them take it on their watch.

In a statement, Shehu said no such information had been gleaned from the either the insurgents or the worldwide mediators working with the government.

The figure includes the Chibok girls, a UNICEF representative in Nigeria, Mohamed Malick Fall, said yesterday.

The presidential spokesman noted that Salkida was not involved in the process that led to the release of over 100 girls and is also not involved in the current efforts aimed at securing the release of the remaining girls.

He said they had been married off and that their fate could only be determined by their husbands.

The post #ChibokGirls: Only 15 remaining out of 113 girls appeared first on INFORMATION NIGERIA. All press enquiries on the subject should therefore be directed to Mr. Salkida.

He also said the facts as known to officials and the global contacts assisting in the quest to free the remaining Chibok Girls were continuing, adding "and we are not relenting on getting their release".

Nigeria's president in 2014, Goodluck Jonathan, was heavily criticised for his response to the abduction but the man who replaced him, Muhammadu Buhari, has had more success.

As parents and guardians continue to hope for the release of the remaining girls, a Nigerian journalist linked with the Islamist group has claimed that only 15 out of the 112 girls are still alive.
