Yakubu Dogara, speaker, House of Representatives
The Speaker of the House of Representatives, Yakubu Dogara, has asked the Executive not to give in but rather intensify rescue efforts for the abducted Chibok schoolgirls.
The Vice President, Yemi Osinbajo, has said negotiations are ongoing for the release of more Chibok schoolgirls still in the custody of the Boko Haram terrorists.
Three days after they arrived Borno to celebrate the holidays in their community, the recently freed 21 Chibok schoolgirls were not allowed to spend the Christmas with or see their parents, residents have said.
Two persons were confirmed killed Wednesday night in Maiduguri, Borno State, as a suspected Boko Haram suicide bomber detonated himself outside Muna Garage, a busy bus station that has recently become a major target for the insurgents’ attack.
Two suicide bombers in the early hours of Friday killed themselves at a police checkpoint near the Federal High Court Complex in Maiduguri, after police officers on guard tried to stop them from advancing towards their post, an official said.
More of the over 200 Chibok school girls from Borno State abducted on April 14, 2014 by Boko Haram have been released, News Express can report this evening.
President Muhammadu Buhari on Thursday departed the Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport, Abuja, for Berlin, Germany, on an official visit.
