The Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) has called on the Federal Government to intensify efforts in rescuing the remaining Chibok girls abducted by the Boko Haram terrorist group.

CAN made this known in a statement signed by its National Director for Education, Youth and Women Development, Rev Ozumba Nicodemus, on Saturday.

"The case of the Chibok girls cannot be swept under the carpet, as it represents a horrific tragedy that has left an indelible mark on the nation’s conscience. The trauma experienced by the 276 abducted girls from Nigeria is unimaginable.

“The pain and anguish felt by their parents, who have endured sleepless nights filled with hopelessness, are deeply felt by CAN. We cannot remain silent while their children remain in captivity, yearning for freedom and reunion with their families.

“CAN hereby reiterates its unwavering demand for the government to intensify efforts and take decisive action to rescue the remaining children still held hostage. This is not only a matter of national importance but also a test of our commitment to upholding the rights and safety of our citizens, particularly the most vulnerable among us,” the statement reads.

They also implored the international community, humanitarian organizations, and individuals to advocate for the girls' release.

April 14, 2024, would mark 10 years since 276 girls of the Government Girls Secondary School in Chibok, a community in Borno State, were abducted by the Boko Haram terrorist group.
