Advocates of the missing Chibok girls are not being accountable to the parents of the girls as some people are said to be making money off them, parents of the missing girls have alleged.
According to Punch, who spoke to some of the parents, they are yet to receive the N30 million donation pledged to them by the wife of the President, Aisha Buhari.
A cheque was presented to the wife of the Vice-President, Dolapo Osinbajo, on behalf of the Chibok parents while Khadijat Bukar, the Minister of state for foreign affairs, collected the cheque for the slain Buni Yadi boys.
Speaking on behalf of the association of the parents of the missing Chibok schoolgirls that live in Chibok and other surrounding villages, Yana Galla told Punch that they were yet to receive any of the pledged monies.
On her part, Ladi Lawan Zannah noted that some people are used their missing daughters as a money making scheme.
She further alleged that apart from N100,000 they got from the Borno state government last year, the only assistance they’ve received so far was N5,000 from the MTN foundation.
“We only hear that something has been given and we have been waiting endlessly for it to get to us. Will it come today or the next day? This has always been the case, whereas the assistance may never get to us.”
Of the donation made the President’s wife, Ladi said, “The only thing we have ever got was two pairs of wrapper and N5,000 which accompanied it.”
“If the money was released, it hasn’t reached us. The N5,000 I talked about with the wrapper was given to us during the second anniversary prayers of our missing daughter’s.”
A retired police officer, Ayama Pogu, was also quoted to have said, “Some people have been making money out of our grief. Never at anytime has any of these officials who have gone to meet with the government on our behalf, either come back to brief us or revealed to us the outcome of their meeting.”
