Militants of one of World’s most notorious Islamic death cults, Boko Haram, on Wednesday morning returned some of the schoolgirls they kidnapped from Government Girls Science Technical College in Dapchi town, Yobe state a few weeks ago.
At least 101 out of the 110 students kidnapped from their school were released early on Wednesday.

While five of the girls, according to those who regained freedom, died before they got to the terrorists’ camp, the only Christian among the schoolgirls kidnapped in Dapchi, Yobe State, last month, Liah Sharibu, will not be released as she has been enslaved by Boko Haram, SaharaReporters has learned.
Her father, Nata Sharibu, said on Wednesday that parents whose daughters were released by the militants told him that his daughter refused to renounce Christianity and that was the reason she is still being held.
Speaking on RayPower FM shortly after the students were released, the girl’s father expressed delight over her stance but prayed for her return.
“All of them were released. They said some were dead there and my daughter is alive but they cannot release her because she is a Christian,” he said.
“They gave her the option of converting in order to be released but she said she will never become a Muslim… I am very sad but I am also jubilating too because my daughter did not denounce Christ.”
Meanwhile, the Borno Government has directed the immediate closure of public boarding secondary schools, as part of measures to enhance security in schools.
