N500 million meant for rebuilding Chibok school disappears

Governor Kashim Shettima of Borno State has cried out regarding the disappearance of N500 million released by the FG to rebuild Government Girls Secondary School, Chibok.

The dreaded terror group, Boko Haram, had made away with over 219 girls from the school on April 14, 2014.

Following their abduction and vandalization of the school, former President Goodluck Jonathan had announced the release of the money.

To substantiate the release, former Minister of Finance, Dr. Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala, had flown to Chibok herself.
