By Ismail Auwal 

The Kibaki Area Development Association (KADA) disclosed that  110 of the 276 girls abducted in Chibok are still missing.

Over 200 girls were abducted by Boko Haram insurgents in Maiduguri.

The president of KADA, Dauda Iliya was disclosing this urged the government to deploy more security personnel to the area during a media briefing on Saturday in Abuja.

“By doing so, we expect our remaining 110 daughters abducted in 2014 and numerous others subsequently abducted at different times to be brought back to us,” he said.

He also accused governments at all levels of “abandoning” the community.

“Chibok has been for all intents and purposes abandoned to its own devices by all layers of government in Nigeria,” NAN quoted Iliya as saying.

“Right from late 2012 up to this time, the statistics of the state of damage and destruction of lives and property inflicted on the community presents a worrisome and pathetic picture.

“From late 2018 to date, the frequency of attacks and level of destruction have escalated and are simply alarming.

“Just this year (2022) alone, Kautikari (second largest town in Chibok area) was attacked on January 14 with five girls abducted, three persons killed, many houses and churches burnt.

“In sustaining their carnage, Piyemi, another big town in Chibok area, was attacked on January 20 with 19 persons mostly girls abducted and one person, the vigilante leader, beheaded.”

“We appeal to the federal government to immediately set up internally displaced persons camps in Chibok town and provide Chibok with skills acquisition centre so as to avoid imminent hunger/starvation in Chibok.

“We request the federal government to order deployment of more military personnel and better arms to Chibok to halt the continuous attacks on the community.”
