Some parents of the missing Chibok girls have claimed that the role of the vice principal in the a little over a year event is questionable.
They also added that their daughters were made vulnerable to Boko Haram kidnappers.
According to a mother of one of the abductees, Mariam Abubakar, who spoke with Sahara Reporters, she said the Vice Principal Yerima Banjiri had told the school girls that any one of them who failed to sleep in the school the night of the abduction would be expelled as a student of Government Girls Secondary School Chibok.
“A week before their abductions, Malam Yerima threatened the students not to leave for their various homes. He said that whoever went home should forget she was ever a student at the school. He told the girls that none of them should go home, that they must sleep in the school.”She told the publication.
“However, none of the teachers’ daughters or even the daughters of the management staff was among those kidnapped. Only the children of we poor people were asked to sleep in the school. The [teachers and administrators] had kept their children in safer places before Boko Haram arrived.”
She further accused the vice principal and possibly other staff of conniving with Boko Haram.
“Our concern is that since the day of [the girls’] abduction, we have never set our eyes on Malam Yerima. He is on run,” Ms Abubakar said.
Some of the parents said that they had been told to refrain from accusing the vice principal and other teachers and administrators.
But several of the parents and relatives of the abducted girls said they had run out of patience after more than a year since the abductions with little or no hope of their daughters’ rescue.
