There was wild jubilation in Dapchi town on Sunday as freed Dapchi school girls reunited with their parents in Dapchi town, Yobe State.

They arrived the town around 3pm under heavy security by the Nigerian Air Force.

A NAF C-130 Hercules Aircraft airlifted the schoolgirls on Sunday morning from Abuja to Maiduguri, Borno State, from where they were taken by road to Dapchi.

However, the girls on their return told newsmen that they would not go back to their school.

This is also as some parents declared that they would look for other schools outside the North-East for their children.

One of the freed girls also said the Federal Government gave them N10,000 each on their departure from Abuja on Sunday.

The girls were later handed over to their parents at the Assembly Hall of the school in Dapchi, the headquarters of Bursari Local Government Area of Yobe State.

The NAF Director of Public Relations and Information, Air Vice Marshal Olatokunbo Adesanya, confirmed the return of the girls to Dapchi.

Adesanya said, “The air force airlifted the Dapchi girls back to Maiduguri on Sunday from where they will be transported to Dapchi under an armed air escort, to reunite with their families. The return of the girls to their community took place after President Muhammadu Buhari and other top government officials received them at the Government House in Abuja on March 23.

“All the girls, including a boy and three teachers from the school, were seen boarding the aircraft.”
