21 released Chibok Girls meet their parents (Photos)

The Federal government today organised a church thanksgiving service in honour of the 21 chibok girls released on thursday.

The girls were officially handed over to their parents who travelled all the way from chibok.

Information and culture minister Lai Mohammed represented the government at the Church held at the Presidential Villa on Sunday. 

Miss Gloria Dame, one of the girls who spoke on behalf of her colleagues was visibly happy and as she jumped for joy, she said, “we stayed for one month without food’’. Continuing her testimony, she said: “I narrowly escaped bomb blast in the forest. I never knew there would be a day like this. “`I will give thanks to God ,’’ she said. 

She begged Nigerians to pray for the quick release of the remaining girls in Boko Haram’s captivity. 

Shiktra Kwali, in her sermon at the interdenominational service, urged the girls not to allow their hallowing experience to deter them from achieving their dreams 

Information Minister Mohammed said that the reunification was a day the world had been waiting for. “It is day of joy,’’ he said.
