“I commend President Buhari, our security forces and the Yobe State Government for their effort in bringing back our girls. However, we cannot stop here. We must not rest until all the Dapchi girls, and the remaining Chibok girls are back home with their families.

“I hope that the girls that have been released will soon be reunited with their families and loved ones. It is also necessary that we ensure that they receive the necessary care and rehabilitation that they need to continue to lead normal lives.

“I urge the affected families and the Yobe State Government to do all within their power to ensure that these girls continue their education — as this will be the strongest signal to their abductors that though they may have kidnapped their bodies — they will never break their spirits and their minds,” the President of the Senate added.

Meanwhile, reactions have continued to trail the release of some of the abducted Dapchi schoolgirls.

Co-convener of the Bring Back Our Girls movement, Oby Ezekwesili has urged the federal government to ensure the release of all kidnapped schoolgirls in Boko Haram captivity.
