Without Support of Nigerian Soldiers, Parents Pull Back from Abducted Girls Trail

Apr. 22, 2014


Parents of the remaining school girls abducted by Boko Haram gunmen on Monday in Chibok, Borno State said they have given up their efforts to rescue their children.

The parents of the missing 200 girls, who pooled resources to buy fuel for motor-cycles, followed the abductors tracks up to about 100 kms from Chibok, but gave up following warnings that Boko Haram gunmen may kill them if they ventured further.

The parents were perplexed that while they were on the Boko Haram trail, not a single Nigerian soldier was seen, despite the advertised manhunt of the abductors by Nigeria’s military authorities.
