Share This

Chibok eldersFrom Ado Abubakar Musa, Jos

As the abduction of Chibok schoolgirls at Government Secondary School, Chibok in Chibok local government area of Borno state enters its sixth month, the parents of the abducted girls in the area have again vowed to go to Sambisa forest in search of their daughters if government failed to rescue and bring back the schoolgirls at the end of this month.

The angry parents, who spoke on the Hausa Service of the BBC, monitored in Jos, expressed sadness and resentment against the claimed effort of the federal government to rescue their children from the hands of the abductors, stressing that president Goodluck Jonathan had failed to keep his promise of bringing back their children.

The parents, who made the decision known in Chibok town, told the BBC that they would rather go and die in the course of searching their daughters than to fold their hands at home, adding that sitting at home would not yield any positive outcome.

The BBC reported that a parent, who vowed to lead other parents at the end of the month, alleged that the federal government was just deceiving them, noting that nothing had been done to indicate that It was serious about the issue.

He said, “I will lead other parent to Sambisa forest or any other place in the bush in search of our children. We have realized that the government is just deceiving us. So in a note shell if government refuses to make any sincere attempt It means that it fails and we wait for further moment to go to the bush.”

He further explained that since from the time of the aduction to date they (parents) had been living in pain and sadness, thinking that their children had died.
