Over 1000 children abducted by Boko Haram since 2013

Over 1000 children abducted by Boko Haram since 2013

Recently, former Minister of Education, Dr Oby Ezekwesili reminded President Buhari of his promise to ensure the return of the abducted Chibok schoolgirls before he was elected president in 2015.

On Saturday, the Chibok community held a service in commemoration of the mass abduction.

More than 50 of them escaped shortly after their abduction and the Buhari administration negotiated and secured the release of 103 of the girls. "Does he remember his pledge to rescue our girls?" At least 112 Chibok schoolgirls are believed to still be in captivity. Though the Nigerian President Mohammed Bukhari ran a successful campaign for eliminating Boko Haram and succeeded in freeing a large region, the terrorist organisation is still making deadly attacks on the military and citizens.

Numerous abducted girls are also believed to have died in captivity.

ActionAid Nigeria (AAN) has called on the Federal Government to make the cities and spaces in schools more safe to avoid a repeat of the terrible experiences of the Chibok and more recently the Dapchi girls' abduction saga which shook the entire nation.

Boko Haram in January released a video purporting to show some of the missing Chibok girls, saying they wish to remain with their captors. The group refused to release Leah Sharibu account of her not being a Muslim and being unwilling to denounce her Christian faith.

Bill Cosby's attorney gives fiery opening statement in trial
The jury that time was not permitted to hear about the settlement, nor was Jackson allowed to take the stand. She says Cosby gave her a drink and forced her to perform oral sex as she faded in and out of consciousness.

"I regret to state here that only 15 out of the 113 Chibok girls are alive today, based on my investigations in the last 3 months and we have already seen some of them in a video, which I exclusively obtained and was published on Sahara Reporters website".

Salkida, a journalist, known to have access to information as regards the kidnapped Chibok girls, had on Saturday said numerous girls died as a result of crossfires from security forces.

On the fate of the kidnapped girls, Silkida said many of them were dead, while those alive have been married off.

"Some of the Chibok parents have since that day began to lose hope and even more psychologically troubled thinking that if the girl Leah is being held back because she is a Christian, it means they may never see their daughters again, because majority that are in captivity now are all Christians".

UNICEF said the Federal Government had made a commitment to make schools safer and more resilient to attack, "and UNICEF stands with them to implement the Safe Schools Declaration, by which Nigeria commits to protecting schools and universities from violence and military use during armed conflict".

Boko Haram had abducted more than 200 girls from the school on April 14, 2014.
