July 5, 2014 – Heart Attack Killed 7 Parents Of Chibok Girls Kidnapped By Boko Haram

While addressing the media in Abuja yesterday, Dr Pogu Bitrus, the National Chairman of Kibaku (Chibok) Area Development Association (KADA) accused the Nigerian Federal Govenrnment of neglecting lives and properties in Chibok.

Bitrus wondered why all the rescue efforts of the government are yet to yield results.

“Today (yesterday) is 81 days since the abduction, and in spite of the firm/categorical statements by the CDS that the location of the girls is known to the government, the appalling situation and agony encompassing the unfortunate abduction saga and detention of the Chibok girls by the Boko Haram insurgents continue and the rescue efforts by the government are yet to yield any result.

“While this unfortunate situation persists, many distressed parents are dying of heart attacks and frustration as their dejection has become unbearable. On record, seven parents have lost their lives due to the trauma of the situation,” Bitrus revealed.

He spoke briefly on the recent attacks by Boko Haram in 19 villages that make up Chibok

 “Unfortunately, again, the Federal Government has not provided adequate security in Chibok (Kibaku) area since the unfortunate abduction of April 14th/15, 2014 even in the face of persistent attacks by the Boko Haram insurgents.

“So far, Boko Haram has carried out 15 attacks on the Chibok (Kibaku) nation involving 19 villages with over 229 killed and over 100 injured. Some of the victims of these attacks are parents and relations of the abducted girls and thereby adding more pains to the traumatic condition already inherent in the Chibok (Kibaku) community.

Hmmm may God comfort them… e no easy.
