It is very impressive and commendable to see activists and few non-governmental organizations campaigning for the release of the abducted Chibok girls despite the fact that the incident occurred several years ago. What exactly is fuelling this hope and courage?. No doubt, the renewed determination, efforts and commitments of the Nigerian security forces in combating the dreaded Boko Haram terrorist may be the source of hope for the families and relatives of the abducted school children. Recently, one of the abducted Chibok girls surrendered with her Boko Haram husband to troops in Maiduguri. More intel can be obtained from the young woman regarding the condition and whereabouts of her ex-classmates.
It is very important that people continue to offer prayers and support the security forces in eliminating the terror organisation from the country. The federal government is doing its part by providing logistics supplies to complement the efforts of the security agencies. For instance, the recent purchase of Super Tucano fighter jets will support the Nigerian Air Force and enhances their attack capabilities.
The newly procured fighter jets are capable of conducting multiple operations such as surveillance, reconnaissance and support for the ground troops. This is exactly the kind of machinery required to navigate the rough terrain of the northeastern region of the country. There is indeed hope for the remaining school girls.
The violent activities of the Boko Haram insurgent group have affected the developmental projects and social development goals in the northeastern region of the country. Hope is all that is left in the minds of thousands of people who witnessed the onslaught of the terror organisation. Their ancestral homes, means of survival and petty trades has been disrupted by the incessant violent attacks. It is very impressive that significant success is being recorded in the fight against insurgency as emphasised by the Army spokesman on their verified Facebook page.

Some of the released Chibok girls are undergoing their education which is being funded by the federal government. It is commendable that they were given the opportunity to continue with their education after it has been disrupted by the terrorists.
