57 of the Chibok schoolgirls who were abducted by the Boko Haram sect on April 14 and managed to escape captivity have reportedly gained admission into a school in the United States of America. The Centre for Promotion of Ethics, Values and National Integration (CENPEVNI) said it was able to secure the admission through its collaboration with other groups. This was disclosed in Abuja by the executive director of the group, and project coordinator, Rehabilitation and Reintegration Outreach Mission (RROM), Dr Mercy Sokomba, at a one day Stakeholders Interactive Session on Effective Victim Support Strategies.
“The reality of this particular offer is if the girls are ready for another form of separation from their parents. However, we have initiated discussions with some leadership of the Chibok community and at some point will meet with them and the parents for consent.
More than 200 girls were kidnapped from the Government Girls Secondary School in Chibok, Borno and most of them are still being held by Boko Haram, 133 days on.
