The results of the over 200 girls abducted by Boko Haram insurgents from their school in Borno State where they were writing their West African Examinations Council (WAEC) on April 14 2014, are now out.
Nigeria’s Education Minister, Mallam Ibrahim Shekarau made this known on Monday when he appeared before the House of Representatives Committee on Education.
Shekarau, who was at a stakeholders meeting organised by the Committee, over the federal government’s directive to schools to resume on September 22 as against October 12 over the Ebola Virus Disease in the country, the ministry got wind of the result via a message from the WAEC.
He said the results are being studied before they will be released to the public.
According to Shekarau, this is because some of the students who were abducted had already written their examinations before they were abducted, while some wrote papers after the abduction of the girls.
