#DapchiGirls: SERAP to FG: Prioritise medical needs of released girls

Socio-Economic Rights and Accountability Project (SERAP) has urged the Government of President Muhammadu Buhari to prioritise the well-being of the released Dapchi girls by immediately providing them with adequate medical and mental health services.

These, according to SERAP, include post-rape care and psychosocial support for those who have survived abduction by the Boko Haram terrorist group.
The organization also “urges the authorities to urgently establish a judicial commission of inquiry to conduct a thorough, impartial and effective investigation into allegations of complicity against some members of the military and security forces in the abduction of the girls. Such commission should be completely independent, and have the mandate to find out exactly what transpired, and identify suspected perpetrators.”
