Some  parents of missing Chibok schoolgirls have expressed frustration and anguish over what they described as 8 years of sorrow and pain.

Rachael Daniel, one of the parents told Daily Trust over the phone that they were waiting for God to intervene but they have lost hope in the federal government.

“They have more than of these girls, just like the way they did at Dapchi, Zamfara, Kastina and Kaduna state they please do whatever they can to return our children. Is it a crime for us to send our children to school? We need our daughters alive and safe.”

“I am waiting on God to help me, this is eight years today since my daughter Rose Daniel was kidnapped, it has been 8 years of agony and pain, no days will pass in these 8 years without thinking of my daughter. I believe in God alone because promised have failed us,” she wept profusely

The Spokesman for the Parents of Chibokgirls Association, Mr Alanson Ayuba, accused the federal government of making empty promises on the return of the girls.

He berated the government over the claim that the Boko Haram insurgents who kidnapped and married off their children surrendered without the girls.

“Our simple question to the Buhari government is where are our daughters? Because thousands of the perpetrators of this evil act are now surrendering without our daughters, where are our children, where did they keep them? Where is Leah? All these questions are begging for an answer.

“Let every one of them know that they are going to give an account of all action and inaction, as we speak 110 Chibok girls are still missing. We are tired of empty promises, we are tired of their propaganda and we are tired of their lies.

“We demand the the the the the the immediate release of our daughters, many of their parents have died because of these girls, some are critically ill due to whereabouts of their daughters. Government should do the needful by ensuring that all remaining 110 girls and Leah Shaibu are releases,” Ayuba said.
