In the wake of the kidnap, there were allegations and counter allegations about whether the girls were truly kidnapped or not.

The government also said no such information was provided either by the captors of the Chibok girls or the global intercessors who are working with it.

The Country Director of AAN Ene Obi say, "While we commend the efforts of the Federal Government and the Nigeria military for securing the release of some of these kidnapped girls".

Hannatu Daudu, whose daughter Saratu, is among the captives told the crowd: "Our only prayer is for our girls to be released and returned to us". One of the girls was rescued in January 2018.

"We thank Allah for those that were released; we want the remaining girls to be released too, we pray that Allah will protect them and protect our nation".

A month later, the militants returned nearly all of those girls. Allah blessed you and brought you to the caliphate for you to worship your creator.

"Many of the girls have died as a result of cross fires and bombardments of the security forces that no doubt were intent on rescuing them".

"But this will mean death to these fighters because the terror group now sees the girls as part of their own and must be protected".

The lecture is titled "Towards a just and good society: Renewing our commitment to the girl child in Nigeria".
