“When the government promised to secure the girls soon repeatedly, we thought it won’t be long after the 82 girls were rescued, having seen how possible that was.

“Right now we are hopeless and more traumatised than before because it seems, the successes recorded is now considered as closure since no one is paying any attention to our grief.”
