As most of the abducted schoolgirls of Government Secondary School, Chibok are still yet to be found, [parents on Wednesday, April 23, 2014 expressed fears that their children may be forced into forced marriages by their abductors.

They also expressed disappointments from endless promises from the government over the recovery of the girls.

One of the parents whose girl was abducted had this to say: “the story we are hearing is not palatable at all. We heard they have segregated the girls into two, the matured ones and those who seem little.

“The matured ones we learnt they will be moving into a different camp and would be forcefully married while we do not know the fate of those they believe are immature.”

More details to come.
