Don’t Play Politics With Our Girls, Says Chibok IndigenesIndigenes of Chibok Local Government Area of Borno State have refuted claims in some quarters that over 200 girls were not abducted from their schools 60 days ago.

Indigenes of the area were at a Friday meeting organised by campaigners calling for the rescue of the girls in Abuja.

They said those doubting the abduction of the girls should not play politics with the issue, stressing that the abduction has affected parents and relations of the school girls

The indigenes thanked members of the group for demanding the safe return of the girls before disabusing the minds of some Nigerians who doubt the abduction of the girls.

In their response, campaigners called on the government to expedite action for the release of the girls and promised to continue to champion the course for the safe return of the girls.

It’s over 60 days when over 200 girls were abducted from their dormitory at the Government Girls Secondary School in Chibok by members of a terrorist group, Boko Haram.

A military chief few weeks ago, said that the military had identified the location of the girls but demanded for patience from Nigerians, as the military was doing its best to ensure that there would not be casualties in the rescue effort.

Some of the Bring Back Our Girls campaigners say the rescue operations for the girls is rather slow. The campaign began about two weeks after the girls were abducted, but the big question is whether the protest of this group will yield the desired result for the release of the girls.

The terrorist group had said they would only released the girls in exchange for members  held in different detention camps across Nigeria.
