CALLS FOR RESCUE OF MISSING CHIBOK SCHOOLGIRLS CONTINUE SEVEN YEARS AFTER
Written by wave FM on April 14, 2021
Calls for rescue of missing Chibok schoolgirls from the Government Girls Secondary School in Chibok have continued after seven years of their abduction.
In a statement to mark the anniversary, Amnesty International blamed the Federal Government for failure to learn from the Chibok attack and protect school children from attacks.
Director Amnesty International Nigeria, OSAI OJIGHO said, the authorities’ only response to schoolchildren being targeted by insurgents and gunmen is to close schools, which is increasingly putting the right to education at risk.
Meanwhile, the #BringBackOurGirls campaign group has vowed not to relent in their campaign for the release of the schoolgirls.
