The father of one of the released Chibok schoolgirls, Deborah Jafaru has explained how his daughter was taken and how grateful he was to God and the federal government for her release.
The girls who were abducted by the religious extremists, Boko Haram in their school dormitory in Chibok, Borno state, Northeast Nigeria two years ago, were last week, released to the federal government in an undisclosed bargain with the dreaded sect.
The happy father explained in a thanksgiving service in Abuja, yesterday, that his daughter returned to the school to re-seat her WASCE when she was taken away.
He said, “Unlike the others, Deborah had already finished her secondary school; she did not make her papers and returned to rewrite her WASCE when she was taken.
“She just got married two weeks before returning for her papers and they took her, her husband has remarried now.
“They abducted her with pregnancy and she had my grandchild there but I’m just grateful to God and the government for returning my daughter and grandchild to me safely. Words cannot describe how I feel at the moment.”
Deborah is the only one among the girls who returned with a baby.
