Parents of Dapchi school girls cries out: Gov’t keeping us in the dark
Families of the students of the Government Technical College Dapchi in Yobe state who were abducted recently by suspected Boko Haram terrorists have cried out publicly saying the government has so far kept them in the dark concerning efforts to rescue their daughters.
The chairman of the abducted school girls’ parents in Dapchi Mallam Bashir Manzo who spoke to newsmen yesterday in Damaturu the Yobe state capital said the only invitation they got was to the police CID unit in Damaturu, where they interrogated them over the stoning of the governor’s convoy.
According to him, no one from the federal government’s team invited them for a talk.
“We only heard that they had a meeting with the governor and traditional rulers and other stakeholders on the radio. “We want President Buhari to remember this, we voted him into power despite threats by the insurgents that we should boycott election. Our daughters are everything to us, so we must be involved in their search”, he said.
Meanwhile, the Government Girls Science and Technical College, Dapchi, has remained closed 13 days after the abduction.
