100 days after, the Nigerian girls are still missing

           I feel so sad as I write this. 100 days after, the over two hundred girls who were kidnapped from their school in Nigeria are still missing. It has been more than three months of agony for their parents and we are so clueless as to what the plight of these girls is now. Married off for money? Sold into slavery? Raped and sexually violated? Alive or dead? Still in Nigeria or trafficked out? So many questions we don’t have answers to.

    The social media activism and online campaign to bring the girls back seems to have died away. It seems like we are gradually forgetting that our innocent girls are at the hands of merciless terrorists, perhaps, hoping each day to be saved. It seems we no longer remember that their parents are each day aching to hear the sounds of their daughters’ voices calling them ‘mummy’ ‘daddy’. 11 parents of these girls have already died out of the shock and heartache. According to the National Chairman of Chibok community, Pogu Bitrus, they died of heart attack and frustration. “One father of two of the girls kidnapped, just went into a kind of coma and kept repeating the names of his daughters until his life left him”
