Boko Haram Threatens to Kill Abducted Girls if Search for Them Continues
Suspected members of the Boko Haram sect have threatened to kill the parents and the abducted final year students of the Government Girls’ Secondary School (GGSS), Chibok, Borno State if their parents and soldiers continue with their search in Sambisa Forest
This revelation was contained in a report carried by the Hausa Service of the Voice of America (VOA), thereby compounding the woes of the parents.
One of the parents told the VOA that “we are seriously disturbed about the abduction of the innocent children. We, the parents, have decided to raise some money to fuel 150 motorbikes to enter the forest in search of our daughters.”
Parents of some of the abducted girls have headed into the forest in a desperate search for their daughters. One of the fathers told the Hausa Service of the British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC) that he was willing to die in the forest in an attempt to free his daughter.
A group of parents have raised money to buy fuel and water and have moved into the forest with a local vigilante group to search for the girls.
The Nigerian Air Force, the Nigerian Army, the police, vigilante groups and volunteers are all involved in the search for the schoolgirls.
The school principal, Asabe Kwambura, and parents of the abducted girls had disclosed that the missing girls were 234 in number.
“We are calling on the government to do everything possible to track these people and save our daughters from them. They should not allow our daughters’ dreams to be shattered by these murderers.
“They took away our daughters and our nieces and we fear for their safety in the hands of these merciless people that take delight in killing and destruction,” one parent said.
