Stop Press: None Of The Released Chibok Girls Was Sexually Abused
BEVERLY HILLS, October 27, (THEWILL) – It is imperative to state that not a single person out of the 21 released Chibok schoolgirls was sexually assaulted during the two years spent in Boko Haram captivity.
NAN reports that a source close to the ongoing negotiations to free the remaining Chibok girls stated this in reaction to reports that the girls were molested, declaring that the false reports was creating stumbling blocks to further talks with the insurgents.
THEWILL recalls that that the only girl who came back with a child was also reportedly said to be impregnated by an insurgent which turned out to be false as her father declared that the girl was pregnant before her abduction.
“The girl and her parents have confirmed this. The child is not a Boko Haram Child,” the source reportedly said.
“None of the girls released was sexually harassed or abused while in captivity by their abductors.
“The current state of the girls is a source of joy as they are receiving the best medical, psychological and other forms of support from the authorities as directed by the federal government.
“All groups including the families, The Bring Back Our Girls (BBOG) and Chibok Community are happy with their condition as medical experts work to address their health conditions.
“The girls have been visited by members of International Committee of the Red Cross, which played a great role in getting the girls freed.
“It is obvious to everyone that having been in captivity, the girls were traumatised but since their release, they are showing signs of recovery.”
