The news of the return of Dapchi girls on Wednesday, March 21, 2018, by their Boko Haram abductors, who snatched 110 students on February 19, is being trailed by salient questions.
#Dapchigirls girls have been returned, some dead.
Government paid Boko Haram, allowed them to drive them back to Dapchi town, drop them without any arrest.

Before #DapchiGirls were abducted, someone calledto withdraw the security forces in the area. Before they nearly captured Boko Haram leader Shekau, someone called the troops to stand down.
Who is this someone who has no name?

It must have taken a lot to return the #DapchiGirls in terms of logistics. It would be great to know what Nigeria had to give/do this time to have these girls returned. We are glad they are back but let’s not miss a chance to learn how to do better.

During Pres. Buhari’s visit to Dapchi last week, he assured the parents of #DapchiGirls that the FG will not rest until all the Chibok and Dapchi schoolgirls in the Boko Haram custody are released and reunited with their families.
Today, we are celebrating #DapchiGirls’ return.

If the news that #Dapchigirls has been returned by Boko Haram is true, then it’s cause of joy.
However, for how long will the Nigerian State have to keep funding these terrorists with millions of dollars when these kidnaps could be prevented via proper intelligence and security?

People who use their heads to think will ask how it was possible for boko haram to freely kidnap and return 100plus #DapchiGirls in an heavily militarised region like Yobe without any confrontation from the military. But I understand some people actually think with their legs.

This was the plan before now so that this government will be praised for negotiating the release of the #DapchiGirls without ransom payment. Remember the statement of the Defence minister, that the girls will be rescue within 2weeks. SMH

I don’t want to be quick to believe that the FG negotiated with and paid Boko Haram to return #DapchiGirls. But if true, then we might never see the end of Boko Haram.

The schoolgirls are seen as a powerful bargaining chip for the terrorist group.. What was paid to rescue the #DapchiGirls, why is payment done in euros? Who negotiated this deal? Was ICRC involved?.. However, we are glad the girls are back…
