Parents of the 82 Chibok schoolgirls who were released after being held for more than three years by Boko Haram have arrived in Abuja to reunite with their children.

The minister for women, Aisha Alhassan, had on May 11 promised that the students’ parents will travel from the remote northeastern town in Borno state to meet their daughters in the capital, Abuja.
Recall that a relative of one of the rescued Chibok girls, Peter Joseph, raised alarm that the Federal Government barred the girls, from sharing their experience under Boko Haram captivity with their parents.
He claimed that his niece was one of the 21 schoolgirls rescued in October 2016, while his sister is still in Boko Haram captivity.
Joseph said in December last year, the girls were allowed to return to Chibok, but were kept in a government facility where their parents visited them.
Reacting, Senior Special Assistant to President Muhammadu Buhari on Media and Publicity, Garba Shehu, dismissed the allegation.
Shehu, in a series of tweets, described the claims by the parents as that they are denied access to their children as totally false.
