''Help me rescue my child''- Father whose 4 year old son was abducted by Boko Haram members last December begs FG

A Nigerian dad residing in Pemi community in the Chibok Local Government Area of Borno State has appealed to the Federal government to help him rescue his four-year-old son, Amos, who was abducted by members of the Boko Haram sect during an attack in his community in December 2020.

The distraught father, Adamu, who is a commercial driver, said his son got abducted the same day a pastor, Bulus Yikura, was abducted by the terrorists but was later rescued in the first week of March.

In an interview with SaharaReporters, Adamu said the insurgents met his son at home, carried him, and burnt his car in the compound and his house before they left. He made a passionate appeal to the Federal government to help rescue his son.

“The terrorists abducted him on December 24. The terrorists burnt my house; they carried my car and my child. I was not at home. Amos is my only male child. He has an elder and a younger sister.

My wife went to fetch water in a well in a neighbouring compound. Before she would be back, the boy had been stolen. My child was stolen inside my car. I parked the car at home. They brought him out of the car and set the vehicle on fire.

They also killed seven people in the community before they left. I want the government to help me rescue my child from the Boko Haram. I ask God to touch the hearts of the Boko Haram to return my child. I don’t have any job – my vehicle which was my means of livelihood was burnt. My wife cries every day and I assure her that the boy will soon be returned.” he said
