The Bring Back Our Girls (BBOG) movement has said it would resume its daily protest over 113 Chibok girls who are still missing at Aso Villa from Tuesday.
BBOG spokesman, Sesugh Akume said this in a statement issued on Thursday.
- The group has continued to demand the release of 276 girls abducted by Boko Haram in Chibok, Borno State.
- The sect released 82 of the girls in May, following a prisoner-swap deal.
- 21 others were later released months later.
- BBOG had organized protests to the Aso Villa Daily to demand the release of the remaining girls.
What BBOG said:
The group said there is no evidence that the government is attempting to rescue the girls.
“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,” the statement read.
“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 to see the outcome of the commitments made.
“Up to now we see no evidence of any outcomes.
“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.”
