The Vice-President of Nigeria, Yemi Osinbajo, has said that the Federal Government is working hard to ensure that the remaining Chibok girls are rescued.

Osinbajo said this in Lome, Togo, during the African Union Summit on Maritime Security and Safety and Development in Africa.

He said “We are working hard to bring back all the girls who have been held in captivity by Boko Haram for so many years, and we will keep praying also that we will be able to bring every one of them back safely.”

According to Punch, Mrs. Esther Yakubu, mother of one of the girls, who is still missing, has expressed hope that she will see her daughter soon.

She said “I pray my daughter is among the next batch of girls to be released because I can’t wait to hold her in my arms again. My advice to the government is that they should give them (Boko Haram) what they want so that they can release our girls to us.

“I don’t entertain any fear, I trust in God and I know that the negotiation will go on as planned and by God’s grace, there will be no problem, our daughters will be released to us soon.”

Meanwhile, the Bring Back Our Girls (BBOG) has accused President Buhari’s daughter, Hajiya Hadiza Buhari-Bello, of allegedly using the name of the group to raise funds on behalf of the Chibok girls.
