About 37 parents of the schoolgirls who were abducted from Chibok years ago, have reportedly died from heartbreak.

A parent of one of the girls, Pogu Yaga said parents of some of the schoolgirls who are still in captivity are slowly dying from worry and heartbreak.

Speaking at the media screening of ‘Nine Years, Life after Chibok Abduction,’ a movie by the Women Radio who visited Chibok and spoke to a survivor, parents, and siblings on life after the abduction, he said;

“37 parents have died so far. When you come to Chibok, you would see that they are all dying from worry and heartbreak.

“Thank God that the former governor of our state, Kashim Shettima is the present Vice-President-elect, we are calling on him and pleading for the rescue of the remaining girls as he tried doing during his tenure as governor.

“We trust in the President-Elect Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, he has always been there for us and we know that we would not be abandoned now.”
