Chibok Parent Complain About The Lack Of Rescue Updates
Parents of the abducted Chibok girls, who are still hoping for the return of their daughters, asked the Federal Government and Nigeria security forces to tell them updates on rescue efforts.
Bulama Jonah, the father of one of the abducted schoolgirls, in a telephone interview with a Leadership reporter complained about the lack of up-to-date information from the government and the Nigerian military.
Sorrowful father just wants to know how far security forces have gone in the search of their girls.
“Days have crept into weeks and weeks now to months and by the 14th of this month, our daughters would be spending nine full months in the hands of the terrorists, yet government is not telling us anything about them,” said Jonah mourning his eldest daughter, Amina.

“It is sad that these girls would be spending nine months in the hands of Boko Haram and no one is telling us anything, not even how far they have gone and where they have stopped. They should know that these are girls and even a woman that is pregnant would by now be thinking of delivering a child but even before that time of delivery, the husband and parents of the woman must have information about her progress.
“It is sad that our government has gradually abandoned us and our missing daughters but as citizens of this country, we deserve to be informed about what is happening to our daughters. For God sake, the government of Nigeria has no right whatsoever to discountenance our plights because in the first place, it is her duty to protect the children who were taken into captivity from the school which is supposed to be government premises.”
Unfortunately, the parents of the Chibok girls entered the new year without their daughters.
A group of aggrieved parents even arrived to the nation’s capital city of Abuja. They urged President Goodluck Jonathan to stick to his promise and return their daughters safe and alive.
The Chibok parents also praised the #BringBackOurGirls (BBOG) campaigners for not allowing the issue to be forgotten.
