Two years after 219 girls were abducted from their school dormitory in Chibok, Borno State, the House of Representatives has asked the Federal Government to set a target for security agencies to rescue the girls.

The House Speaker, Yakubu Dogara, stated this after a long debate on a motion, moved by the All Progressives Congress member, representing Damboa/Chibok Federal Constituency of Borno State, Mrs. Asabe Bashir, to mark the second anniversary of the girls' abduction.

The House eventually agreed to send a “high-powered delegation” to the town of Chibok to commiserate with the parents and relatives of the missing girls.

“A time has come for us as an institution, to insist that the executive should set targets for the rescue of the girls.

“We have to set targets so that we don’t lose the sense of urgency that is required to free the girls”, Dogara added.

The Speaker commended the Bring Back Our Girls’ campaigners for not giving up on the struggle for the girls' freedom.

“We must also commend the security forces of our country, who have been toiling day and night, searching for these girls,” he said.
