Fam­i­lies of Nige­ria miss­ing girls call for UN help

The Peterborough Examiner - - Canada & World -

Fam­ily mem­bers of the Nige­rian school girls who were kid­napped by Is­lamic mil­i­tants four years ago are now call­ing for the UN to in­ter­vene to find out their fate. Some 113 girls never re­turned, though some were forced to marry their cap­tors and have said they will not come home. The Nige­rian gov­ern­ment has vowed to bring them all back. How­ever, Ayuba Alam­son Chi­bok, a spokesper­son for the par­ents, said “no one is pay­ing any at­ten­tion to our grief.” More than 100 of the girls ab­ducted from Chi­bok in 2014 were later re­leased. But it’s been an es­pe­cially ag­o­niz­ing wait for the fam­i­lies of those girls still un­ac­counted for.
