  • Reality

    One drama after the other. until we see those girls and asses them, no comment.

  • Rollingdollar

    Good. But no further comment for now until the girls are interviewed by the media. THANKS

  • Stephen Ejeh

    We thank God for the release of those girls! But my question is why were they not all released? Why only release 21? There is something our Government isn’t telling us about this negotiation thing!

    • musa aliyu

      But why must they tell you the details. It’s still a secret. Let them come out from the den of the hoodlums.

  • Watch man

    Hmmm! Are these the girls? Their names???

  • lies

    Go check their names against those on the schools register–cause these Buhari people can never be trusted

  • Nipim

    Make we see their faces now? Maybe I can recognize my sister among them.

  • Abdulkadir

    I was hoping I would read someone who still believes Chibok girls are just an unpleasant fiction

    • Gabriel Olasebikan

      It’s no fiction Abdulkadir. Now that they have been released,are they still “Muslims” or they are Christians?

  • POLITICS_of_Terrorism/Kidnapin

    Are you from East of Nigeria? Are you from the South of Nigeria? ……….better begin to prepare for Breakaway from Nigeria asap because the DRAMA we see in Nigeria is getting too funny. Nigeria will be worse in the coming months and years. The people of the North are not compatible with us and the only people they can live with are the Yorubas of the West of Nigeria. So let the North and West remain in Nigeria and the rest of us East and South must be ready to fight our way out and take our destiny in our hands.

    Imagine a group of girls kidnapped by the politicians in the North all because they needed political power and after 2.5yrs they get the same girls released. Who is fooling who? Where have these girls been living inside the forest? Which forest really? With no light, no water …and nobody ever saw them? And not even Nigerian military that can do house to house check in the Niger Delta looking for Avengers? This is a joke taken too far. If you ask me, I suspect these girls have all been kept at an Emir’s palace somewhere in the North and they have been feeding them there…knowing that no one or even the Army will ever suspect that these girls are locked up in a Palace.

    The politics of terrorism and kidnapping is has become the MO of desperate politicians of northern Nigeria since they have no resources (Material and Human) to match neither the South, East or West. Their only stock in trade is Violence, violence and more violence. Time to break away is NOW!

  • emmanuel

    1. Can WAEC please release the names of Registered students of Chibok Secondary school?
    2. Can the useless so called Federal Government of useless Nigeria allow these girls speak to independent media/journalists?

    Let the girls tell us where they have been? Location and so on…who has been feeding them etc etc ..

    .It is only in Nigeria that people never ask questions. Months ago, one so called Chibok Girl was released and she was found with a man they called her Boko Haram husband. Where is the girl now? And where is that Boko haram husband? They never spoke to the press nor the public. The Nothern politicians including Buhari suppressed the whole story and prevented these persons from speaking. Grapevine has it that the Govt has bribed the family of that girl with some cool millions of Naira and they have kept quiet. The same bribery is what will be done with the parents of these 21 girls and they and their girls will keep quiet.

    This is evil. Pure evil…and Nigerians are looking like lucozade.

    • Rommel

      I hope this fate befalls your family soon

      • Kudo

        It will not befall if it is a hoax

        • Tunji Olarewaju

          Just say:Amen

      • Arabakpura

        Amen!

      • Netanyahu

        Which fate? Nigerians are the most gullible on earth. You believe this drama, you believe anything. Why do you think this drama was staged in the morning mumuhari left for Germany to go beg for money? It’s to have maximum deceptive effect. But don’t think Germans nay oyibos are as gullible, otherwise they would not have developed to where they are today. They have their embassies here and monitor us more than we imagine.

      • PLAN A

        I find it baffling that after partial knowledge of the suffering and heart break that had been the story that followed the abducted Chibok girls,another Nigerian would pray that a fellow Nigerians family go through the same ordeal! It is a shame! We are in a Democracy, entitled to plurality of views and opinions and we cannot stir the Ambers of hate and wicked desires to score cheap points. You are truly a disgrace.

  • FRAUD ALERT!!!

    You mean Camera man no fit stand face the girls and take pishure? Why are all the photos of these girls taken so far been taken from behind the girls? Why no frontal image of the girls?…………..Haba!…………….Bokohari???????????????? Wetin!

    • FormerlyAPC

      Since they were “abducted by book haram” and forced into islam, they are free now, so the hijabs should be removed so that we can identify them. who says these girls were kept in captivity? They just released them from the safekeeping of the arrange abduction by shettima and others. They have achieved their aim -to remove GEJ. They have no further reason to keep the girls where they are. Sebi all the western world came to help look for chibook girls? All of them no go back with their tails btween legs? Abeg make I hear one.

      • Samadani

        GEJ gone? Gone forever!

  • Rommel

    Are they a spectacle that many people here want to behold? Nigerians have become so pathetic,this is what the criminal administration of Jonathan has done to Nigerian psyche,I rejoice that the girls are back and we hope for more

    • Kudo

      Keeping sitting comfortably in a pack of lies

    • PLAN A

      You are a sadist! Many Nigerians rejoiced and wanted to see for their eyes,these girls that have been separated from their homes for almost 1000 days. If you didn’t see the pictures, would you believe? Your comments are often precipitously done and for your own good,you should consider SHUTTING UP UNTIL YOU READ THE VIABLE COMMENTS OF OTHER RESPONSIBLE NIGERIANS!

  • PLAN A

    On the 6th of February, 2016,the so called Father of Modern Nigeria, Chief Olusegun Matthew Aremu Obasanjo declared to all who cared to listen,”Chibok girls are Lost forever,they can never be found”. Fast forward 8 months later,and today some of those girls are back home. The journey to getting back the rest of the girls is still long,but we must never lose hope of finding them. We must never let leaders like OBJ make us lose hope of finding our future. Kudos to BBOGs group.

    • Rommel

      Your mischief will swallow you someday because Baba did add that if they are found,it would not be exactly the same school girls that were missing but,we would have people who have gone through trauma so if you wish to quote the man,quote him correctly

      • Netanyahu

        Did any sane person expect the girls to be the same after two years in captivity? You and your baba are brainless.

      • PLAN A

        Rommel,I perceive you don’t understand your post. You are not under any pressure to say rubbish! FG has secure 21 of the same school girls that were abducted. If your prayer was that they should be lost forever,you have just failed! With this discovery,the impetus to push for the other girls will heighten. Even ignorant Boko Haram members know when they have valued abducted subjects.

  • CAN’s-List Vs FG’s-List

    Why is APC Govt full of lies and deceit? The full list of missing Girls from CAN and the names released by FG have obvious inconsistencies…missing names, strange names now appear on FG’s list…People never identified as missing. Pls WAEC help us with list of “registered” students.
