Chibok Girls: 57 Gain Admission Into US School.

The Centre for Promotion of Ethics, Values and National Integration (CENPEVNI) said it was able to secure the admission through its collaboration with other groups.

This was disclosed in Abuja by the executive director of the group, and project coordinator, Rehabilitation and Reintegration Outreach Mission (RROM), Dr Mercy Sokomba, at a one day Stakeholders Interactive Session on Effective Victim Support Strategies, Leadership reports.

She said: “The reality of this particular offer is if the girls are ready for another form of separation from their parents. However, we have initiated discussions with some leadership of the Chibok community and at some point will meet with them and the parents for consent.”

She said offers for completion of education of the girls, inclusive of scholarship, have been made to RROM through Stefanos Foundation and the international support groups of RROM while adding that they hope the funds and support partnership will consistently get to RROM for project sustainability within scheduled time frame so as not to hinder the progress the outreach mission has made so far.

She prayed for the safe return of the abducted Chibok girls and many other women and children abducted earlier or after the Chibok girls.

Sokomba who commended the Federal Government in the fight against insurgency, pleaded for a quick resolution of the Boko Haram saga, saying: “The end of terrorism will bring an end to the loss of lives and properties.”

It’s been over four months since over 200 girls were abducted by Boko Haram insurgents from their school in Chibok, Borno state  and all the attempts to rescue the girls from their abductors is yet to yield positive result.

After their abduction on April 14, some of them were said to have escaped and have since been re-united with their families, but a large a number of the girls are still being held the abductors.

Over the weekend, reports surfaced that the parents of the missing girls want the case closed and all they want is the corpses of their daughters so they could bury them honourably.
