Keep spotlight on 91 missing girls – Chibok parents pen open letter to First Lady

Parents of the 91 missing girls of the 2014 school abduction in Chibok, Borno State, have appealed to the First Lady, Mrs Oluremi Tinubu, to advocate for the safe return of the Chibok girls.

In an open letter titled “A Plea for Justice and Remembering the Chibok Girls – A Letter to Her Excellency Mrs Remi Tinubu,” the parents shared their anguish and hope for their daughters’ safe return.

The letter was signed by Yana Galang and Mallam Zanna on behalf of the Chibok Parents Association and those whose children are yet to return.

They expressed deep sorrow over the 10 years of horror and trauma since their children were abducted.

While many of the Chibok girls have been reunited with their parents, there are 91 others whose whereabouts are unknown.

They emphasised the ongoing pain and memories of the abduction, urging Mrs Tinubu to stand with them in seeking justice.

The letter read, “We are haunted by the memories of that night when our girls were taken from us, and every day, we pray for their safe return.

“We have not lost hope, Your Excellency. We have not given up on our daughters, and we will continue to fight for their freedom until they are brought back to us.

“We urge you to use your influence and your platform to ensure that the plight of the Chibok girls is never forgotten, that justice is served, and that those responsible for this heinous act are held accountable.”

The parents specifically requested the support of Mrs Tinubu “in keeping the spotlight on the Chibok girls and their families.

“We ask for your solidarity in our quest for truth and closure. We ask for your compassion and your commitment to ensuring that no other parent has to endure the pain that we have suffered for a decade.”

According to the parents, despite the 10 years of uncertainty, they still hold the belief that justice would prevail and those responsible would be brought to book.

“We hold on to the belief that justice will prevail and that those responsible for their abduction will face the consequences of their actions.

“We hold on to the love that binds us as families and as a community, determined to see our girls come home.

“Your Excellency, we humbly ask for an opportunity to meet with you, to seek your assistance in advocating for the safe return of our daughters.

“We ask for your empathy and understanding as we navigate through this unimaginable pain.

“We ask for your commitment to standing by us and never forgetting the 276 girls who were taken from their school that night,” the letter added.
