As the world celebrates International Women's Day, parents of the 110 abducted Dapchi schoolgirls want their daughters back home.

On Thursday, the parents dispatched a delegation to Abuja in continuation of their clamour for the release of the pupils abducted by suspected Boko Haram militants since February 19.

Secretary of the parents’ association, Bukar Kachalla, told Punch on telephone that the Dapchi delegation is expected to meet with the Bring Back Our Girls campaigners in Abuja at the World Women’s Day celebration.

Kachalla said the girls, who have been in captivity for the past 18 days, must have passed through horrifying experiences, hence the need to push the government to act.

“Most of these girls are between the ages of 11 and 15 years and they don’t know anything. Allowing them to pass through this kind of experience at this age for long will affect them greatly.

“Aisha Wakil, who participated in the negotiation between Boko Haram and the Federal Government in the past, has come out to say she has been in touch with the abductors of our girls.

“So, the the Federal Government should contact her to help bring back our girls,” he said.
