Five telephone lines belonging to some of the abducted Chibok schoolgirls were used to call some of the parents, it was learnt yesterday.
To increase their agony after missing the calls, the anxious parents were threatened by those receiving the calls when returned the calls.
The unknown callers also gave conflicting information on their location with some claiming to be speaking from Ondo or from Cameroon.
Mr. Hosea Tsambido, Chairman Kibaku Area Development association (KADA), an Association that represents the Chibok community in Abuja, told reporters yesterday that the chairman of the Chibok girls’ parents, Yakubu Nkeki, gave him the information.He added that Nkeki was threatened by the respondents and warned never to call back if he loves his life.
He said: “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,” he said.
