While speaking with reporters on Saturday in Maiduguri, Borno state, Ibrahim Idris, inspector-general of police (IGP), was quoted as saying the insurgents will release Sharibu on Saturday.
Idris said he had been scheduled to travel to Dapchi but shelved the trip so as not to jeopardize the girl's release.
"The misunderstanding may be as a result of the already released Dapchi schoolgirls expected back home in Yobe State today but could not arrive due to weather conditions", spokesman Jimoh Moshood said in a statement.
The school girls kidnapped by the Boko Haram jihadist group in Dapchi, north eastern Nigeria, were reunited with their families on Sunday after spending almost five weeks in captivity. "The Force therefore reiterates that it has no information yet on the release of the last Dapchi school girl". Once again, we reject Boko Haram as an Islamic group.
Five of the schoolgirls kidnapped in mid-February died during the ordeal, and one Christian girl remains in captivity.Читайте также: Union Minister rubbishes Rahul Gandhi's charge as 'pack of
Meanwhile, NAIJ.com had previously reported that the Yobe state police command denied media reports that they were informed hours before the abduction of over 100 girls in Dapchi community by Boko Haram terrorists.
The residents, who thanked the president for securing the release of the daughters, also appealed to the government not to relent until the release of the remaining girl still under the custody of the insurgents.
"The town is in high spirits and full of anticipation", Goni said.
This is the first time in years the government has said it is talking to Boko Haram about a ceasefire in an insurgency that has killed tens of thousands of people and ravaged the North-east of Africa's biggest economy.
After their release on Wednesday they had spent three days in the national capital Abuja and were greeted by President Muhammadu Buhari. "The IGP could not also proceed to Dapchi because of same weather condition", he stated.При любом использовании материалов сайта и дочерних проектов, гиперссылка на обязательна.
