Its been over 130 days since the over 200 Chibok school girls were kidnapped by the dreaded Boko Haram sect on April 14 in Borno, the traumatized parents have called on the Federal Government to go to Sambisa forest and bring back the corpse of their children dead or alive.
Speaking on behalf of the parents, the chairman of Chibok Local government, Tsambido Hosea, in an interview with Premium Times on Friday, August 29 during a protest to mark the 130th day in Abuja said the parents have not been able to move on with their lives since the abduction of the girls.
He said the parents have given up hope and are seeking a logical end to their trauma either by burial or reunion.
Chibok Chairman, Tsambido Hosea said: “The parents say they don’t care about their life but let them go in. If they can take care of this Boko Haram, so that they will not spread to other places. So that they cannot continue with their menace.
“Let the girls be sacrificial lambs. That’s what they told me yesterday.
“I phoned them, that I know that I am going to face some interviews today. What is your opinion? So this their opinion.
“Actually, if the federal government has that capacity, let them go into the Sambisa. If there are some that God said will be rescued, it can be rescued by the force.
“And if some has gone, its okay, than all this troubles, than all this trauma the parents are going through now.
“They cannot do anything. But had it been they buried them, they would have forged ahead with their lives.
“They are saying let the government go into the forest. Even the corpse, let them bring the corpse of the children so that they will bury them properly.
“What they are saying is that these girls in the bush, it is better for the government, to go in with the force, with the army might to bring them even the corpse for them, so that they can bury them properly.”
“If the Federal government has that capacity, let them go into the Sambisa. If there are some that God said would be rescued, they can be rescued by the force and if some have gone, it’s better (to know) than this entire trauma the parents are going through,” he said.
Meanwhile, a renowned human rights activist and negotiator, Comrade Shehu Sani has disclosed that some powerful Nigerians are preventing the efforts of the Federal Government and other concerned citizens in ensuring the release of the missing Chibok girls.
On August 31, it was reported that Former Vice President, Atiku Abubakar, have announced that 15 of the Chibok girls who escaped from Boko Haram captivity have been been awarded scholarships to study in the American University of Nigeria Academy in Yola.
