Chibok abduction aftermath: Survivors return home with 34 children, report reveals

Ten years after the abduction of 276 girls from Chibok Girls Secondary School in Borno state, a new report sheds light on the profound aftermath of the tragedy.

According to the report released by the Murtala Muhammed Foundation (MMF) in Abuja, among the 21 survivors who have been released so far, 34 children have returned home with them.

The report, commemorating the 10th anniversary of the abduction, confirms the harrowing experiences endured by the girls during their captivity, including sexual violence and coerced marriages.

The devastating toll on both the survivors and their families is evident, with 48 parents of the abducted victims reported to have died.

Dr. Aisha Muhammad-Oyebode, the director of MMF, presented the report and highlighted ten key recommendations for the Nigerian government and the international community.

These recommendations include calls for enhanced security measures, community empowerment programs, and early warning systems for security threats.

Meanwhile, the Defence Headquarters (DHQ) clarified that the release of 313 terrorism suspects to the Borno state government was ordered by the Federal High Court in Maiduguri.

According to Maj.-Gen. Edward Buba, the suspects were detained on suspicion but were released due to lack of evidence against them.

The handover to the Borno state government was for further action as per the court’s decision.
