#BringBackOurGirls Resumes Daily Protest To Aso Rock

The Bring Back Our Girls Group, #BBOG, yesterday resumed its daily protest marches to the State House.

The demonstration it stated was to remind the government that it is yet to rescue 113 Chibok girls that were kidnapped on April, 14, 2014.

More than 100 girls are still missing after they were abducted from their school in the North-east town of Chibok in 2014 by the Boko Haram.

About 276 girls were kidnapped, leading to global social media campaigns nationally and globally, using the hashtag #BringBackOurGirls.

”Following the return of 82 of our girls 6 months ago, not much has been heard from the Government of Nigeria. Three months ago the presidency made commitments none of which have been implemented. For this reason, our movement mobilised for marches to the State House to ensure that the federal government lives up to its commitment, but we put them on hold at various times.

”Most recently, one month ago, the vice president made open commitments about our #ChibokGirls, likewise the president in his Independence Day address. We, therefore, in line with our principle and practice of reasonableness put a hold on our marches, expecting to see the outcome of the commitments made. Up to now we see no evidence of any outcomes.

”The families of our #ChibokGirls have been completely in the dark all these six months. The likewise public has been in the dark. Within this time Lassa women (among them police service personnel) were kidnapped by the terrorists, also an oil exploratory team which included staff of the University of Maiduguri, the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC) and members of our military were kidnapped. None of the victims in both incidences is back, none of their families has been contacted. These are only two of many incidences within the last six months under review,” the group media team said in a statement on Friday.

It said the marches, which will commence 9 a.m. daily from Tuesday at the Unity Fountain, Abuja would refocus the attention of the authorities to the plight of the traumatised families.

”Our movement, therefore resumes daily marches to the State House, in order to refocus attention on the plight of our #ChibokGirls and all the incidences of abductions, killings, and general insecurity as well as the abysmally poor handling of the situations; to demand their immediate return,” the statement said.
