Also speaking, the senator representing Taraba South, Emmanuel Bwacha, appealed to the negotiating team to ensure the release of Sharibu and the remaining Chibok girls.

“I rise to raise personal appeal to the negotiating team of the executive that ensured the release of the Dapchi girls. I am doing this to appreciate them for their efforts to get a few of the Chibok girls and 98 percent of the Dapchi girls released.

“I want to appeal that they should double their efforts so that Nigerians would have hope in the effort they are doing to put confidence in the heart of Nigerians,” he said.
