New York � The United Nations Children's Fund (UNICEF) welcomed Saturday's release of more than 80 of the Chibok schoolgirls abducted by Boko Haram insurgents over three years ago.
It is heartening to know that the girls will be returning to their families who have been waiting for this day. They will face a long and difficult process to rebuild their lives after the indescribable horror and trauma they have suffered at the hands of Boko Haram, said UNICEF Nigeria Acting Representative Pernille Ironside in a statement.
She added that UNICEF is on standby to support the Nigerian authorities to provide the comprehensive psychosocial support, help reunite the girls with their families and make sure they can continue their education in a safe environment, UN News reported.
