Some parents of missing Chibok schoolgirls have expressed frustration and anguish over what they described as 8 years of heartache and pain.
Rachael Daniel, one of the parents, told the Daily Trust by telephone that they were waiting for God to intervene, but they had lost hope in the federal government.
“They have more than these girls just like they did in Dapchi, Zamfara, Kastina and Kaduna say they are doing everything they can to return our children. Is it a crime for us to send our kids in school? We need our girls alive and safe.”
“I am waiting for God to help me, it has been eight years today since my daughter Rose Daniel was kidnapped, it has been 8 years of agony and pain, not a day will pass in these 8 years without thinking of my daughter . I believe in God alone because the promises have failed us,” she wept profusely.
Spokesperson for the Chibokgirls Parents Association, Mr. Alanson Ayuba, accused the federal government of making empty promises on the return of the girls.
He chastised the government for the claim that Boko Haram insurgents who kidnapped and married off their children surrendered without the girls.
“Our simple question to the Buhari government is where are our daughters? Because thousands of perpetrators of this evil act are now going without our daughters, where are our children, where did they keep them? Where is Leah? for an answer .
“Let each of them know that they will be held accountable for all action and inaction, as we speak 110 Chibok girls are still missing. We are tired of empty promises, we are tired of their propaganda and we are tired of their lies.
“We demand la la la la the immediate release of our daughters, many of their parents are dead because of these girls, some are seriously ill because of where their daughters are. The government should do the necessary to s ensuring that the remaining 110 Leah Shaibu daughters and daughters are releases,” Ayuba said.
