Nigerians See Little Progress in 4 Years Since Chibok Kidnapping

This is coming on the heels of President Muhammadu Buhari's anniversary message of hope and assurance to the parents of the abducted school girls.

Ene concluded that "the Federal Government and the Nigeria military should adopt its intelligence, power and negotiation as deployed for the release of the Dapchi girls, to bring back the remaining 113 missing Chibok girls and 1 Dapchi girl, Leah Shuaibu".

Over 200 girls were reportedly kidnapped from their school - Government Secondary School, Chibok in Borno state in 2014.

The relentless onslaughts show not even children and schools are spared from Boko Haram's wrath - rather, they are the targets.

Four years since the Chibok abduction, about 100 of the schoolgirls are unaccounted for.

The 19-year-old was discovered with a four-month-old baby and a man she described as her husband near Boko Haram's Sambisa Forest enclave.

UNICEF Representative in Nigeria Mohamed Malick Fall further informed that 20000 people have been killed while 20 lakh have been displaced due to attack by Boko Haram.

The president assured the parents of the girls that they would hear good news soon concerning their daughters, as the government remains focus on the actualization of the rescue of the girls.

Significant freezing rain and ice pellets expected Saturday
Most of Saturday will bring southern lower MI mostly rain, however freezing rain may creep southward, especially in the afternoon. Areas in eastern Ontario will see snowfall amounts of between 10 and 15 centimetres, along with freezing rain and ice pellets.

The Nigerian Army has constantly maintained that the sect has been defeated.

In February, fighters loyal to a Boko Haram faction headed by Abu Mus'ab al-Barnawi seized 112 schoolgirls and one boy from the town of Dapchi, in Yobe state.

Salkida, who claimed to be part of the negotiating team for the release of the girls since the era of former President Goodluck Jonathan's administration, enjoined the Buhari administration to "demand for proof of life, as it carries out negotiations to secure the release of the remaining girls still in captivity".

The Nigerian jihadist group's uprising was fueled largely through the group's systematic campaign of abducting children and forcing thousands of girls and boys into their ranks, according to a report issued in April 2017 by the United Nations Children's Fund (UNICEF). Don't give up hope of seeing our daughters back home again.

Some Dapchi parents were in Chibok on Saturday in a show of solidarity.

Buhari however admitted that they may be some delay in securing their release following setbacks in talks with the terrorists.

At least 2,295 teachers have been killed and at least 1,400 schools have been destroyed in northeastern Nigeria over the last nine years, UNICEF said.
