The parents of the 82 Chibok girls that were recently released from captivity are to meet with their children on Friday.
It was according to invitation extended to them by the Federal Government.
All parties are to congregate in Abuja.
The Chairman, Chibok Community in Abuja, Mr. Hosea Tsambido, who disclosed this to newsmen on Sunday stated, “Many of the parents have identified their children through the photos and I was told that they are coming on Friday.”
When asked if the Federal Government would be sponsoring the trip, Tsambido said, “I don’t know. What the parents told me was that they were asked to come on Friday. I didn’t ask if the government would sponsor the trip but usually, the government sponsors such trips.”
A guardian of one of the rescued girls, Yahi Dwata, also confirmed to The PUNCH that the Federal Government had asked the parents to come on Friday,
Dwata, whose niece, Comfort Bulus, is among the rescued girls, said, “It is true. I have received word from parents in Chibok that the government asked them to come on Friday. I will also be in Abuja on Friday.”
