The Bringbackourgirls (BBOG) campaigning for the release of abducted Chibok Secondary School girls says it is prepared to march to the Presidential Villa again.
The protest march according to a statement issued in Abuja on Monday by Sesugh Akumeh, its Spokesperson is to express its disappointment and press demands about the remaining 113 girls that are still in Boko Haram terrorists’ captivity since 2014.
The march will take off from the Unity Fountain, Abuja from 9 am.
BBOG lamented that the federal government has failed to give updates on the return of the remaining girls noting that their parents and families have been left in the dark about their rescue and return.
It said “For three months since May, the federal government has not given any updates on the return of our 113 missing #ChibokGirls. The parents, families, community, and the public at large have been left in the dark wondering. This is unacceptable. Our march is also intended to wake the federal government up, and prevent in from relapsing and sinking into the inertia and complacency it is always wont to”.
The group also expressed concerns over the recent spate of attacks by the terror group in the Northeast as well as abduction of women in Borno and Adamawa States.
BBOG said “There has also been an increased spate of terrorists’ attacks in the northeast, as well as the recent abduction of women on Borno-Adamawa road which the federal government is living in denial about and handling poorly. Clearly no lessons have been learned over the years”.
