17 CHIBOK GIRLS’ PARENTS DEAD SAYS BBOG

No fewer than 17 of the parents of the abducted Chibok schoolgirls have reportedly died as a result of trauma associated with the abduction.

The 276 schoolgirls were abducted in a secondary school in Chibok, Borno State, by the Boko Haram Islamist sect on April 14, 2014.

She said though some of the girls had regained freedom, the fact that 112 of the girls were still with Boko Haram was unacceptable.

“While we are not unaware of the efforts made so far by government of Nigeria in securing the release of 103 girls from captivity, four years is too long and totally unacceptable

“In fact, on May 14, 2017, we were expecting 83 girls. On May 6, only 82 agreed to board the plane to freedom.

“Saraya offered to remain with her captors. We have failed these children and continue to fail their families,” she said.

Muhammed-Oyebode, daughter of the assassinated Head of State, General Muritala Ramat Muhammed, while speaking, opined that it was a tragic reflection of the Nigerian society’s desensitization to evil.

She said, “The abduction of the Chibok schoolgirls and Dapchi schoolgirls is an attack on the soul of Nigeria.

“The rights of children, women and girls must be provided for, protected and promoted as enshrined in the constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria.”
