The Kibaku Area Development Association, also known as Chibok Community, on Wednesday, raised the alarm over the neglect of the over 100 school girls abducted by Boko Haram terrorists in 2014.

They said since the mass abduction of the 276 of their daughters in April, 2014, wherein 57 escaped (on their own), 110 of them are still unaccounted for.

According to them, the release of the remaining Abuja- Kaduna train attack victims had shown clearly that the Federal Government had abandoned Chibok community, including their children that were abducted in Chibok Girls’ Secondary School, Borno State.

The National President of KADA, Dauda Iliya, said the matter of the abducted Chibok girls and the unending attacks on their communities were still persisting.

He was reacting to the statement by the Secretary, Chief of Defence Staff Action Committee, Prof. Usman Yusuf, that all the 23 remaining passengers abducted from a Kaduna-bound train on March 28, 2022, had been released by their abductors.

Iliya said, “The issue of the abandonment of the Chibok School Girls 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 Defence Staff, Lucky Irabor.

“The statement in particular has caused the Chibok people pain and caused us despair and a deep feeling of neglect and abandonment by the Federal Government.”

He said that despite not releasing their girls, the Chibok community had been facing an unprecedented attacks from terrorists.

“The latest attack in Chibok happened only on October 3, 2022, in Njlang, a village just 5km away from Chibok”, Iliya said. Punch
