Addressing newsmen in Lagos, UNFPA’s Executive Director, Prof. Babatunde Osotimehin said: “Consequently, since we have discovered that the magnitude of the challenge on ground is huge and there aren’t sufficient human resources to cope with this, we have sought for foreign assistance in human resources to help in the recovery process for these women and young girls.”
Osotimehin is in the country to establish the level of activity that is being coordinated by the UNFPA country office since the army began to free many of the abducted women and with many more others in various camps returning to their traditional homes, so as to facilitate more assistance to federal government.
He said the assistance needed for the freed women and girls would include essentially psycho-social and trauma management among others.
