The parents came determined Tuesday to meet with President Muhammadu Buhari, but they failed. Two of them were the arrow-heads.
They were back there today, Wednesday, more determined and unbending. Again, they were stopped at the gate; but they just would not budge. Even when the Minister of Women Affairs, Senator Aisha was sent from within the fortified Aso Rock Villa, they insisted Buhari was the man they came to see.
Push came to shove, but the parents stood their ground. In the end, they were allowed in.
At press time, they were still in a meeting with Vice President Yemi Osinbajo.
195 of the Chibok girls are still in the hands of insurgents who took them captive over three years ago.
