BBOG Group Embarks On Week-Long Protest
The Bring Back Our Girls (BBOG) campaign group, have reconvened at the Unity Park Abuja, in an effort to further urge the government to step up its search for the remaining abducted Chibok school girls.
The Co-convener of the group, Dr. Oby Ezekwesili, says members should continue their week long protest not minding the threats of the police.
On January 8, 2017, it became 1,000 days since 276 girls were abducted by Boko Haram militants from Government Secondary School, Chibok, Borno state.
Some of them have since been released while others managed to escape, but at least 195 girls are still in captivity.
Their abduction drew international attention to the activities of armed group in Nigeria’s north-east region, with several world leaders including former British Prime Minister, David Cameron, calling for the girls’ release.
Meanwhile, the President, Muhammadu Buhari, has restated the commitment of the federal government in securing the release of the remaining youngsters.
