LAGOS: THE Chibok community appealed to the public to donate funds for the rehabilitation of schools members of the Boko Haram sect had destroyed.
A leader of the community in Abuja, Tsambido Hosea-Abana, made the appeal during a #BringBackOurGirls Group as former Education Minister, Obiageli Ezekwesili, donated some funds to help address the challenges suffered by families of the more than 200 schoolgirls Boko Haram kidnapped in April last year.
“The money has entered the designed account,” said Hosea-Abana.
I am also appealing to Nigerians to donate to the course of rebuilding the schools in Chibok as some of these schools have been destroyed when the Boko Haram attacked the area.” Chibok is a Local Government Area of Borno State.
On the night of 14–15 April, 276 female students were kidnapped from the Government Secondary School in the town. The school was damaged.
Efforts to rescue the girls have proved futile as is the reported truce between government and the Boko Haram for the release of the girls and prisoners respectively.
