The Director Amnesty International Nigeria, Osai Ojigho, has asked the Federal Government to do more in rescuing the abducted Chibok girls and the remaining Dapchi schoolgirl, Leah Sharibu.

Mr Ojigho stated this in commemoration of the fourth anniversary of the abduction of the Chibok schoolgirls by Boko Haram in Borno.

“What happened in Chibok should have served as a wake-up call to the Nigerian government. Yet four years on, thousands more women and girls have been taken from their homes and forced to live in captivity, in events largely unnoticed and unreported by media,” Mr Ojigho was quoted as saying in a statement by the Media Manager of the organisation, Isa Sanusi.

“The time is long overdue for the government to deliver meaningful action on behalf of all these victims of Boko Haram’s crimes.

“Far more support must also be provided for past victims. For the families of those still missing, the government should open a register for abducted people, ensuring that the tens of thousands of people living in displacement camps get the opportunity to register their loved ones.”

The Chibok girls were abducted on April 14, 2014, from the  Government Girls Secondary School in Chibok.
