A father in Chibok community in Borno State, whose daughter was among those abducted by the deadly Boko Haram insurgents in April, has regret ever taking his daughter to school.

The Father also accused the government of playing politics with the life of the girls.

He told the British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC) Hausa, in an interview monitored in Kaduna, on Thursday, that although he regretted enrolling his daughter in school and would have loved to be with her at home, he would not rest on his oars “until the government brings back his daughter.”

The father, whose name BBC Hausa could not mention, lamented over the multiple effects the fate of his daughter had caused his family, saying his mother had always challenged him on why he could not go the wild and rescue her.

“I do tell her everyday that even if we could go to the bush in search of my missing baby, the government would not allow us to go.

“My wife, the mother of our missing baby, is suffering from hypertension, because we are always thinking of our daughter. We can’t even go to the farm,” he said.

The father said from the last time they were taken to the Aso Villa to meet with President Goodluck Jonathan till date, the period was enough for a serious government to rescue the missing girls.

Speaking on whether it was true some of the affected parents from Chibok had decided to foreclose the issue of their missing daughters, the man said he was not part of such decision and would continue to strive “till he eventually sees his daughter.”
