Salomi Pogu, the 15th in the list of the abducted girls, who was rescued in 2018, appreciated the Federal Government and the Minister of Women Affairs, Pauline Tallen but begged the Federal Government to rescue the remaining 96 girls.

She said; “We appreciate what you all have done in our lives. I cannot say anything else except to say thank you. Please let’s do more, let’s not forget about this children.”

Pauline Tallen, in her message, said out of the 276 abducted on April 14, 2014, 57 had the opportunity to escape, while 219 of the girls were taken away.

She said 122 of the girls have so far been rescued with 108 of them under the current administration while 97 are still in captivity.

She assured that efforts were still on to rescue those still in captivity, saying “All hope is not lost”.
Tallen claimed that she has made two trips to Chibok to support the parents of the girls by providing them with monetary and other support.
The Minister pleaded with everyone to hold out hope for the liberation of the last few girls.
