The United Nations Children’s Fund, UNICEF has called on the Nigerian Government to provide intensive support for the twenty-one freed chibok girls to safeguard their future.
UNICEF made the call in a statement signed by its country representative, Gianfranco Rotigliano, in Maiduguri.
Mr. Rotigliano said the girls reported that they were subjected to forced “marriages” beatings, intimidation and starvation during their captivity and that they would need medical attention and psycho social support.
This will enable them to come to terms with their experiences and reintegrate with their families and communities.
The girls had since reunited with their families and according to Vice President Yemi Osinbajo while receiving them, the government would ensure that the gilrs get quality rehabilitation.
