CHIBOK GIRLS: 300 DAYS AFTER?

The government should keep its promise of bringing the Chibok girls home

Yesterday marked exactly 300 days that 276 girls were abducted by Boko Haram insurgents from Government Girls Secondary School, Chibok, Borno State at a time they were writing the West African School Certificate (WASC) examination. Some 57 of the girls were later to escape from their abductors while 219 of them, between the ages of 15 and 19, remain in the captivity of the terrorists. Yet despite repeated official promises to rescue the girls, Nigerians, and indeed, the Chibok community, are left to speculation, since options appear unclear and hope seems to be fading fast.

So tragic is the situation that about three months ago, the Chibok community announced that they would prefer that the federal government attack the insurgents forcefully, even if that would result in fatalities.The parents of the girls (some of whom have died) told the world that they would rather the bodies of their daughters be brought home than continue to live in such suspended animation. To fulfill cultural rites, funeral obsequies were held for the girls in absentia, if only to bring closure to the families and to a grieving, helpless and hopeless community. However, as we pointed out at the time, giving up on rescuing the girls cannot be an option for any self-respecting society.
