The Chibok community has appealed to the #BringBackOurGirls group to continue the demand for the Chibok girls until they are rescued.
This appeal was made by the chairman of the Chibok community in Abuja, Tsambido Hosea-Abana during the First Inaugural Lecture of Chibok girls to mark the third anniversary.
Hosea- Abana stated that the group has been standing for the girls for three years, adding that if not for the group, the girls would have been forgotten.
He stated that the government had not fulfilled its promise of rescuing every abducted girl and pleaded with the government to rescue them.
Recall that one of the parents of the abducted girls, Rebecca Samuel has lamented that the federal government has not fulfilled it’s promise and had not communicated with the parents as promised, adding that the #BringBackOurGirls group have been their solace since the abduction.
“It has been three years. When it happened, we thought that in a matter of days, the girls will be rescued but here we are now. We call on world leaders to help us to bring back our girls. We are heart broken. How long will we continue like this?
“Some of the parents are dead because of trauma. Many are sick. They keep wondering when their daughters will come back. When we want to eat, we can’t because we keep wondering if our daughters are safe where they are.
“If your child is dead, you bury him or her. We do not know if they are dead or alive. If our children are the daughters of the rich, they would have been rescued by now. Government and world leaders should help us,” she cried.
