The entire Chibok community under the umbrella of the Kibaku Area Development Association has accused President Muhammadu Buhari of abandoning 112 school girls in Boko Haram captivity since 2014.
In a statement signed by the Director of Media and Publicity for the association, Dr. Manasseh Allen, the community accused the president of failing his promise of rescuing the remaining girls after 82 of them were returned in May of 2017.
The group also alleged that there is a plan afoot by Boko Haram to wipe out the Chibok people in the face of overwhelming silence from the Nigerian Government. The group said there was no sign that the Federal Government was going to secure the release of the remaining 112 girls, 2.276 days after their abduction in April, 2014.
“Neither the families nor the Kibaku community had been briefed and informed by the Federal Government on rescue efforts or the whereabouts of our daughters since the last batch of 82 returned on 7 May 2017, except for the messages by President Muhammadu Buhari, released every 13th of April on the eve of the 14 April commemoration. These messages are basically the same copy and paste with minor alterations year in and year out,” the statement read.
The group further accused the Federal Government of abandoning the Chibok girls who were released by the terrorists and enrolled at the American University of Nigeria (AUN) Yola. The group alleged that there has been no progress with the education of the rescued girls.
“Ten of them have out of frustration left the programme. They are: Laraba Mamman, Mwa Daniel, Rachael Nkeki (who are now married), Saraya Yanga, Philomena Dauda, Sarah Nkeki, Asabe Lawan, Glory Mainta, Talatu Adamu, and Lydia Habila,” the Chibok community alleged further.
In school, they were isolated and not allowed to mingle, interact, and socialise with other students. The Federal Government has also frustrated any help that came the way of these daughters of ours.
