Why Chibok girls are still in captivity – Monguno


A member of the House of Representatives, (APC Borno), Mohammed Monguno, has revealed why it has been difficult to free the remaining Chibok schoolgirls.

He informed the House that the factional crisis among the Boko Haram insurgents did not help matters.

He said this while the lawmakers debated on a motion on the urgent need to rescue the girls to mark the fourth anniversary of their adoption.

The motion was moved by the member representing Damboa/Chibok Federal Constituency of Borno State, Asabe Bashir.

Monguno said at every incident, the first move was to find out which of the factions carried out the attack.

Monguno added, “There is the Shekau group and the Albanawi group. The Shekau group, which is more radical, abducted the Chibok girls.

“The girls from Dapchi were abducted by the more liberal Albanawi group. That was why the release of the Dapchi girls came faster.

“We urge the government to intensify negotiations with the Shekau group to secure the release of the Chibok girls.”
