It was gathered that the Minister of Women Affairs and Social Development, Hajia Aisha Alhassan, said on Thursday that all the 106 girls so far released by Boko Haram are medically stable.
She also described the girls’ abduction as the most cruel form of violence against the Nigerian child.
Alhassan, who spoke in Abuja as part of activities lined up for the 2017 National Children Day celebration, said the girls would be handed over to the ministry for proper integration into the society next week.
The minister said: “All the released 106 girls are now medically stable without any form of terminal disease. All those that require surgery have been operated upon and are now medically fit.
“Their abduction remains the cruelest form of violence against children. Some of the children are still being subjected to different forms of inhuman and degrading treatment against their will.
“I am glad about the recent release of another batch of 82 girls. A total of 106 girls has been released so far. This has raised our hope once more.
“As we celebrate Children Day, I enjoin all Nigerians to remember the Chibok girls that are still in captivity in their prayers, I wish to use this opportunity to also urge the security agencies to do all that is humanly possible to bring back the remaining girls to us and their families.”
