The Senior Special Assistant to President Muhammadu Buhari on Media and Publicity, Garba Shehu, on Friday dismissed allegations by parents of 21 earlier released Chibok girls that they have been restricted from having access to their daughters.
Shehu, in a series of tweets on his social media handle described the claims by the parents as totally false.
He noted that the girls, who were to visit their parents during the Easter period could not due to security concerns.
The tweets read, “It is time to put to rest the falsehood that parents of the 24 Chibok Girls who returned earlier are not allowed to see them. Cross section of the Chibok Girls recently released from Boko Haram
“This claim is outrightly false. By an arrangement put in place, the 24 girls will go home to spend time with their families every three months.
“They were due to go during Easter but security advice was against that.
“Instead, Government made arrangements for the parents to come to their girls in Abuja in batches.
“Eighteen of the parents left Abuja on Friday, May 5 after spending three days with their daughters. This can be verified.
“Another set will also come once arrangements for them are put in place.”
