Chibok Girls’ Parents Demand Bodies Of Their Children For Proper Burial
The parents of the abducted Chibok girls seem to be fed up at the rate on which the search for the girls who have been gone for more than four months have been unfruitful and they say they want the matter closed.
The parents of the school girls said they presumed the girls must have being dead for which their funeral rites have already been performed in their (parents’) minds according to their custom. They, however, urged the federal government to bring the girls’ corpses for honorable burial.
This was learnt to have been disclosed on August 22, 2014 by the #BringOurGirls advocacy group, during its daily sit-out meeting for the rescue of the missing school girls at Unity Fountain, Abuja. “All they said they want is their corpses to bury them honorably,” the group said.
As a way of driving their demand home, the group said it is vigorously mobilizing people on and offline and via social media towards holding a mega protest march in the FCT. According to them, over 200 groups in Abuja have so far been contacted and have given positive response to participate, with 135 individuals on the group’s database contacted.
The group have also urged the government to make more effort to free the girls from the hands of the Boko Haram Islamic sect.
