Obiageli Ezekwesili, leader of the BringBackOurGirls, says she can only “cry” and “weep” after learning of the freedom of 21 of the hundreds of Chibok girls abducted by Boko Haram in 2014.
Twenty-one of the girls were freed on Thursday, and Ezekwesili — vilified by the government and security agencies for continuously leading protests to the presidential villa — could not hide her joy.
“I can only weep, right now. You know that kind of cry that is a mix of multiple emotions. Lord. Some of OUR Girls ARE BACK!!! B. A. C. K.!!” she tweeted.
“As WE @BBOG_Nigeria wait for FG and #ChibokParents identification of OUR 21 #ChibokGirls,
THANK YOU, LORD. THANK YOU, @MBuhari .Thank you.”
Ezekwesili added that even though it was 4am in the part of the United States that she was, she could no longer sleep.
“It is 4am in California and I can no longer sleep. Join me in singing the words of Psalm126… “When the Lord turned again the CAPTIVITY…”
Garba Shehu, spokesman of the president, has already confirmed the plan of the government to release the names of the freed girls.
