WATCH: British lawmakers deliberate on continued captivity of Chibok girls

09 September 2016, 20:17

Abuja - Some British lawmakers in the UK House of Commons on Thursday held a debate that lasted for two hours and 34 minutes, at Westminster Hall to deliberate on the issue of the over 200 schoolgirls abducted by Boko Haram terrorists in Chibok, Borno State.

The lawmakers, who expressed regrets that the girls had not been rescued despite military efforts by Nigeria and its Lake Chad Basin neighbours, disclosed that the case of the missing girls would be considered again at the United Nations General Assembly.

During the debate which involved consideration of the “Second Report from the International Development Committee, Session 2016-17,” of the UK’s Department for International Development in Nigeria, various British lawmakers called on the global community to rise in defence of the missing pupils, who were kidnapped from their hostel on April 14, 2014.

According to some of the parliamentarians, they were moved to tears during the debate and vowed that the House would keep up its pressure to see that the girls that have been in Boko Haram captivity for over 2 years now are rescued.
