The mother of one of the missing Chibok girls has sent out a heartfelt plea for people to remember her daughter in their prayers, especially for her daughter’s 20th birthday.
She reached out to CNN, explaining that she is speaking out because she doesn’t want her daughter to be forgotten.
Esther Yakubu‘s daughter was kidnapped in April 2014 when she was just 16 years old.
Dorcas Yakubu is among more than 100 young women who still remain in Boko Haram captivity.
Dorcas’ mother says:
Please wish her a happy birthday and remember her in your prayers. I want the world to remember her and the other girls in their prayers. She’s a special child. My first daughter. She’s my adviser. She makes me happy all the time and comforts me when I’m down. She’s my everything. Seeing my baby standing with a terror(ist) with … ammunition around his neck is not easy for a mother.
