Nigerians Call For Release Of Chibok Girls As Dapchi Girls Return
Nigerians on Wednesday took to social media to call for the release of schoolgirls abducted in Chibok, Borno State after 110 abducted Dapchi schoolgirls were returned.
The Dapchi schoolgirls were abducted by Boko Haram insurgents from a Government Girls Science Technical College (GGSTC) in Dapchi town, Yobe State in February 2018.
They were however released on Wednesday, March 21 when the insurgents reportedly dropped them off in Dapchi community.
The news of the release of Dapchi schoolgirls have sparked various reactions. Some of the reaction is that the Federal Government should channel same efforts to secure the release of Chibok schoolgirls.
Over 200 Chibok schoolgirls were abducted from the Chibok Secondary School in Chibok, Borno State in April 2014. While the insurgents have released video showing the girls in their custody and some of them released, over 100 of the students are yet to be released.
‘Thank God, but what of Chibok Girls.’
That was one of the tweets by some Nigerians who took to social media on Wednesday.

Unfortunately, the then Chibok girls are now Chibok women as most of them are now reported to be with children. We were blaming poor security not knowing that the culprits are VVIP, see how they were celebrated on the return of the said Dapchi girls. Nigeria Ndooooo!.

1). Dapchi girls were abducted
2). Buhari said he handled Dapchi better than GEJ handled Chibok.
3). Dapchi girls were returned in a convoy.
4). Journalists are denied access to Dapchi to monitor the return.
Are you with me?

Chibok girls still missing
Dapchi girls released
Is it not the same Boko Haram that kidnapped them?
Does Boko Haram love the Dapchi girls more than the Chibok girls to have quickly released them?
Why is the Chibok girls kidnap more complicated?

We should still praise them for their swift response . If the previous admin had responded quick enough we won’t still be having missing Chibok girls. Lest we forget its this same govt that managed to get some Chibok girls rescued
