The President this Monday expressed his happiness on receiving the University of Maiduguri lecturers who were abducted by the dreaded Boko Haram at a funeral procession.
His statement says:
“I can’t fully express the joy I felt I this afternoon, as I received our citizens recently released from Boko Haram captivity—fathers, mothers, sons, daughters. We will go to any length to ensure that no one is left behind in the hands of terrorists. Every Nigerian life matters!
There were the University of Maiduguri lecturers, abducted while on service to their fatherland, and also the women abducted from a funeral procession. Today they are safely back home, and Nigeria rejoices with them and with their families.
He equally assures Nigerians of the safe return of the captured Dapchi girls, mentioning that he “asked” the security agencies to ensure that ever captured person is safely released.”
They told me that they had given up all hope of ever coming back alive. I assured them that we will never give up on any of our citizens. I have asked the security agencies to ensure that every abducted person—including the Dapchi girls—is safely released.”
