Oby Ezekwesili reacts to return of abducted Dapchi girls


Bring Back Our Girls (BBOG) co-convener, Oby Ezekwesili, has expressed joy over the return of the abducted Dapchi girls.

She took to her twitter page to welcome the abducted school girls from Dapchi, Yobe state, who were allegedly returned to their village by their abductors in the early hours of Wednesday, March 21. Recall that 110 students of Government Girls Science Technical College (GGSTC), Dapchi were on February 19, 2018 kidnapped by Boko Haram insurgents. Ezekwesili, who is also a former federal minister of education, said the return of the school girls is a good news but the federal government should demand the return of the 112 Chibok girls who are still in their abductors’ custody.

Ezekwesili went further to ask if the terrorists who reportedly returned the Dapchi school girls have been arrested and how many have been taken into the custody of the security operatives.

She tweeted: “While we @BBOG_Nigeria rejoice that “abductors” of our Dapchi girls have returned them, please be reminded that: There are #112 #ChibokGirls remaining to be returned. We demand that you also ask their abductors to return them immediately! Now!!

In a separate tweet where she copied the president and the Nigerian Army, Ezekwesili wrote: “The terrorists returned our Dapchi girls to Dapchi? Wonderful. Please confirm and also let us know how many of the terrorist were arrested.”
