Abuja - The opposition All Progressives Congress (APC) reiterated calls to the People’s Democratic Party-led federal government to ensure the release of the schoolgirls Boko Haram sect members abducted in Chibok in April.
More than 200 girls are still missing after their abduction in the Borno State.
“It is now over two months since these girls were separated from their families and no one knows under what conditions they are being held. As long as these girls are missing, something is missing in all of us. We therefore repeat our appeal to the federal government to leave no stone unturned in its efforts to bring back the girls safely.
We hereby reiterate our support and cooperation for all the efforts that could reunite these girls with their families. We insist that only a non-partisan and concerted effort by all and sundry will help to galvanize a national front against Boko Haram, which is daily killing and maiming our people and stunting the country's growth,” APC said in a statement issued in Lagos by its National Publicity Secretary, Lai Mohammed.
Despite international support and solidarity, the girls have not been located.
The Boko Haram is reportedly holding them hostage hoping for a swap deal that would lead to government releasing some imprisoned sect members.
