Three Years after the capture of Nigeria’s over 276 Missing school girls in the North western parts of the country, the EU and the UK have again joined voices with several other bodies urging that the Nigerian Government do more, and expend all necessary resources towards the release of the remaining 195 Chibok schoolgirls in Boko Haram’s captivity.
The EU statement read “The European Union delegation in Nigeria deeply regrets that most of the abducted girls remain unaccounted for three years after they were forcefully taken away from their homes, families and loved ones.
“We commend the Nigerian government and its international partners for the action that resulted in the release of 21 of the kidnapped girls last year, and for its stated commitment to ensure that the remaining girls are freed and reunited with their families.
“No effort should be spared to free the girls and bring their abductors to justice.”

The UK on its part stated that their country would not be deterred from supporting Nigeria to tackle violent extremism.
The statement read, “Our thoughts are with the Chibok girls who remain missing, their families and all those abducted by Boko Haram. We are working side by side with Nigeria in the fight against Boko Haram and call for the release of all those who have been taken.”
Several events have been earmarked to commemorate the three years anniversary in the country by rights group and several bodies.
