I haven’t forgotten… Bring Back Our Girls ~Randi
Hopes of the federal government securing the release of the Chibok Secondary School girls abducted by the dreaded Boko Haram sect Monday and reuniting them with their loved ones has crashed again.
No reason has been given for the failure of the deal between the federal government and the insurgents, despite the assurance by the sect’s spokesperson that the girls would be freed on Monday.
On Friday, October 17, hopes were raised that the 219 remaining girls might soon be released after the Nigerian army announced a truce between Boko Haram and government forces.
The deal was announced by the Chief of Defence Staff, Air Marshal Alex Badeh.
Badeh said, “A ceasefire agreement has been concluded between the Federal Government and the Jama’atu Ahlis Sunna Lidda’awati wal Jihad (Boko Haram).”
It will also be recalled that on Friday, October 24, the self acclaimed secretary General of the sect, Mallam Danladi Ahmadu, said that the kidnapped Chibok girls would be released unfailinly on Monday, 27 October.
