He made this pledge while speaking today, at a High-Level Breakfast Dialogue on ‘‘Stop the War on Children Affected by Armed Conflicts, Dividend of Silencing the Guns“.

”A number of schoolgirls from Chibok and Dapchi earlier abducted by Boko Haram have regained their freedom,” the president said.

”We commend the gallant efforts of the Multinational Joint Task Force and the partners in supporting the reintegration of the girls,” he continued.

”Let me categorically reassure you of the steadfast commitment of the Government of Nigeria to ensure the freedom of all kidnapped children from the shackles of Boko Haram.

”We will not relent until every child, boy, or girl, every Nigerian adult in custody of Boko Haram, is freed!” the president added.

According to Malam Garba Shehu, he then urged other countries to work on protecting children from what he referred to as “the six grave violations” during armed conflict.

: killing and maiming of children, recruitment or use of children as soldiers, sexual violence against children, abduction of children, attacks against schools or hospitals and denial of humanitarian access for children.
