“We are happy for the development and join parents in Dapchi to rejoice over the recent development.

The monarch, who is also the traditional ruler of Ifitedunu Ancient Kingdom in Anambra, appealed to the Federal Government and its partners to expedite action on the release of the remaining female students.
Ilouno also said that Nigerians were still waiting to get details of how the feat was achieved by the government.
