The Kibaku Area Development Association (KADA) has decried the neglect of the over 100 school girls abducted from the community in 2014.
The community said that the release of the remaining 23 Abuja- Kaduna train attack victims recently shows that the government has abandoned Chibok Community including their children that were abducted in the Secondary School Chibok.

The National President of KADA, Dauda Ndirpaya Iliya, said on Wednesday in Abuja that the matter of the abducted Chibok school girls and the unending attacks on their communities is persisting.
“The issue of the abandonment of the Chibok Schoolgirls has come forth again following the release of the remaining abducted train victims largely due to efforts of the federal government and especially the military under the Chief of Defense Staff, Lucky Irabor.
“This has caused the Chibok people pain and a deep feeling of neglect and abandonment by the federal government,” Iliya said adding that the Chibok communities have been facing unprecedented attacks from terrorists.
“The latest attack in Chibok happened on October 3, 2022, in Njlang, a village just 5 Km away from Chibok, and early this year, Kautikari was attacked precisely on January 14 with five girls abducted, three persons killed, and many houses and churches burnt.
“We call on all well-meaning Nigerians and Mr. President in particular, to rise up to the occasion and urgently save our people from total annihilation and starvation. We also appeal to our action Governor Zulum to do more in organizing and helping our people in securing our state in general and Chibok in particular,” Iliya said.
