Parents Of Abducted Dapchi Girls To Join BBOG
The recent kidnap of over 90 girls from a school in Dapchi village in Yobe State is like watching a movie a second time.
About this time in 2014, more than 270 girls were kidnapped by Boko Haram in the town of Chibok in Borno State.
The agitation to bring back the Chibok girls is still ongoing as some of the Chibok girls remain missing.
Meanwhile, members of the Bring Back Our Girls campaigners would be joined by parents of the missing Dapchi girls.
Parents of the newly abducted girls said on Friday that they would join BBOG and seek the immediate release of the children.
A roll-call at the school in Dapchi on Tuesday showed 91 students were absent, though estimates of the number of missing range from around 50 to more than 100.
Parents said they have set up a committee in the village, which is around 100 kilometres (62 miles) from the state capital, Damaturu.
The committee’s chairman, Bashir Manzu, whose teenage daughter is also missing said: “We have compiled 105 names of missing girls which we intend to give to the Bring Back Our Girls people in (the capital) Abuja.”
The group would present its case to President Muhammadu Buhari, he said, adding that the group is angry with the government’s response to the kidnapping.
