Some of the twenty one released Chibok schoolgirls who were abducted by the Boko Haram have re-united with their families following their release last Friday.
Cries of joy and shouts of prayers filled the venue of a thanksgiving service held for the girls at the D.S.S facility in Abuja as the girls met their relatives.
At the thanksgiving service, the girls said their parents spoke of their excitement at seeing each other.
One parent said and I quote, “When we heard they found some of the girls and that our daughter was among them, we slept as if the day is not going to break, we wanted the day to break quickly, to see if the government is going to call us, to come and see that our daughter was among them”, end of quote.
Information and Culture Minister, Alhaji LAI MOHAMMED who also attended the thanksgiving service spoke on the re-union with parents.
Reports say the girls will now undergo treatment which must be tailored to individual needs, including trauma counseling and health and nutritional requirements.
