The presidency was responding to Sesay’s submission in her new book, “Beneath The Tamarind Tree,” written on the 270 Chibok girls abducted by Boko Haram on April 14, 2014.

Angered by Sesay’s conclusion in the book, Senior Special Assistant to the President on Media and Publicity, Malam Garba Shehu, in a statement, stated Nigeria’s government’s measurement to rescue the girls along with Leah, the only Dapchi schoolgirl, held back by Boko Haram when it released her peers on March 21, 2018 over her refusal to deny her Christian faith, remains firm.
