Chibok parents cry as Clark tasks Buhari on release of abducted schoolgirls

Parents of Chibok schoolgirls, who are still in Boko Haram captivity, yesterday cried during a visit to the Abuja residence of a former Minister of Information, Edwin Clark.

Boko Haram insurgents had, in 2014, abducted many students at Government Girls Secondary School, Chibok, Borno State.

While some of them have been released, others are still in captivity.

Women leader of the Chibok parents, Yana Galang, cried and asked the government to speed up the release of the remaining girls.

She said: “I have 8 children, she is number 5. Up till now, she is still missing.”

Secretary of the Chibok parents, Lawan Zanah, also cried out: “My daughter Aisha, is still in captivity. She was 16 years when she was taken away.”

Dr Alan Manasseh, Director of Media and Communications Kibaku (Chibok) Area Development Association (KADA), who led the delegation, said they visited to plead with Clart to engage other stakeholders and the federal government to secure release of the remaining girls.

Reacting, Clark asked the federal government to probe how the girls were abducted and bring culprits to justice.

He also asked the government to secure release of the remaining girls.
