Some parents of the 234 abducted students of Government Girls’ Secondary School, Chibok in Borno State Friday claimed that the Boko Haram sect which abducted their children on Tuesday, April 15 relocated, along with 191 of the abductees, from the Sambisa camp to Bale village in Damboa Council on Thursday night.
The relocation, according to a 59-year-old parent who prefers anonymity and who spoke on behalf of other parents, was to flee from troops pursuing them in the forest.
The Guardian on Saturday quoted the source as saying: “Since the abduction of our daughters, we have been living in fear, with increased anguish of not seeing our loved ones alive or dead.
“We were told that soldiers are right now in the bush of Sambisa Forest, looking for these missing children since they were abducted 11 days ago.
“As poor parents who cannot do anything right now to rescue our daughters, we put all hopes on the Almighty God and continue to pray and fast that our children be released unconditionally by these gunmen.”
The source was further quoted as disclosing that Bale village is a farming and herdsmen community located in the same forest and that the parents were prevented by security personnel from searching the forest.
