#DapchiGirls: 2 Questions Nigerians Want Buhari To Answer
After news broke that some of the abducted Dapchi girls have been returned by Boko Haram, Nigerians are raising concerns amidst jubilation.
They want the administration of President Muhammadu Buhari to answer two critical questions.
Sahara Reporters had claimed that Boko Haram did not come with a single gun when they returned the girls to Dapchi, Yobe State.

Nigerians now want two issues to be addressed.
1. Ransom Paid Or Not
How much did the government pay to Boko Haram as ransom? This is one question many persons reacting to the return of the girls are asking.
President Muhammadu Buhari had told the sacked US Secretary of State, Rex Tillerson, that his administration is willing to "negotiate" to bring the girls back.
Now that their return seemed very easy, Nigerians want to know how much was paid to Boko Haram (if any sum was paid) or what else was given in exchange.
2. No Arrest After President Buhari's Tough Talks?
Why was there no arrest of Boko Haram members who returned the girls?
While promising the parents of the girls that they will return, President Buhari also said Boko Haram members would be dealt with.
An opportunity to deal with the terrorists had come but nothing happened.
Nigerians want to know why no Boko Haram member was arrested.
A spokesman for President Buhari has told a foreign media organisation that details of the returned girls would be provided.
Nigerians are waiting.
