Parents of Chibok girls receive strange calls from daughters' mobiles

13 April 2016, 06:35

Abuja - Parents of five of the missing Chibok girls have been left in a state of confusion and agony after receiving strange phone calls from the mobile numbers of their missing children.

According to a Naij report, the anxious parents tried in vain to phone the numbers back, but were only met with harsh words and threats.

The callers, who remain unknown, have also given conflicting information regarding their locations, with one stating that they were from Ondo, whereas the other claimed that they were from Cameroon.

Yakubu Nkeki, chairman of the Chibok girls' parents, supplied the information to authorities, saying that he had missed a call from his daughter's number but was instead greeted by a man when he attempted to call the number back.

“The speculation that a Chibok girl phoned her father is not exactly like that. It is actually the telephone numbers of about five girls that are being used to call people but when the parents call back, different people answer, some will say they are in Ondo or in Cameroon. All the parents that were called missed the calls,” said Hosea Tsambido.

Tsambido is the chairman of the Kibaku Area Development association, an organization that represents the Chibok community in Abuja.
