A group photo obtained by a Nigerian Public Affairs analyst on Twitter, shows the 21 newly rescued Chibok girls looking all cleaned up in a group picture with Senator Ali Ndume in Abuja.
Just three days after they were released by Boko Haram group, the 21 Chibok schoolgirls have been pictured in a group photo with Senator representaing Bornu state, Ali Ndume in Abuja, looking fresh and cleaned, as they are expected to reunite with their parents today (Sunday).
It was gathered that the parents had embarked on a 24-hour trip from Borno State to meet with their children.
The Senate leader, Senator Ali Ndume, who confirmed this when he met with the 21 girls on Saturday, told The Nation that, “I was with them for an hour and I observed that their recovery is rapid.
They are looking forward to meeting their parents on Sunday (today). We thank the Federal Government for securing the release of these girls. With this development, there is bright light at the end of the tunnel.
“There was no sign that the girls were molested or forced to abandon Christianity in captivity. Gloria, who is their leader led the Christian prayer session during my visit.
“She offered the prayer in a moving manner and I said ‘you are qualified to be a pastor’. They were in high spirits, the medical experts, psychologists and other social workers have done a good job. I am optimistic that they will recover faster.”
Meanwhile a member of the Chibok community who wants to remain anonymous said that a thanksgiving service will be held for the safe return of the girls in an undisclosed church in Abuja later today.
