Nigerian Government needs to do everything possible to ensure the safe return of Chibok girls- US

The United States has urged the Federal Government to do everything possible to ensure the safe return of the more than 200 Chibok girls that were abducted in April 2014.
 
The US acting Consul General, Dehab Ghebreab, who spoke at the red-carpet première of the Hollywood crime-drama thriller, ‘Captive’, in Lagos State on Thursday said the US government would stand against anyone and/or groups, who persecute, discriminate and kill people based on their religion.

She said:“Nigeria has its share of humanitarian problems with Internally Displaced People due to the vicious atrocities of Boko Haram. In 2014, the United States provided about $11 million for humanitarian assistance to Nigeria and we continue to support Nigeria to crush Boko Haram. On this day, the Chibok girls have been missing for 535 days. Everything humanly possible must be done to ‘Bring Back the Girls’.”
