BBOG demands urgency in release of remaining Chibokgirls

•Members of the #BringBackOurGirls group led by ex-Minister Oby Ezekwezili (third right) during a march to mark 1000 Days of the Chibok Girls in Boko Haram’s captivity in Abuja…yesterday.

Members of the #BringBackOurGirls (#BBOG) advocacy group have demanded urgency in the release of the remaining Chibok schoolgirls..

The group also reminded the government of the promise it made10 weeks ago of its willingness to negotiate with Boko Haram for the release of 83 more Chibok girls after the return of the 21 girls.

#BBOG which accused the Federal Government of absolute silence since its promise, in a letter signed by leaders of the group Oby Ezekwesili and Aisha Yesufu, #BBOG said the group would  be embarking on a Global week of Action to compel further action towards the release of the remaining 195 girls.

They stated, “With the 1000th day since the Chibok Girls abductions, it may come as no surprise that we will be embarking on a Global Week of Action to compel further action towards the release of our 195 girls.

“It should be remembered that when the 21 Chibok girls returned 10 weeks ago, the Nigerian government said that it understood that there were 83 more girls that Boko Haram was prepared to negotiate over and that the government itself was willing to negotiate.

“This was followed with absolute silence which was only broken by the announcement of Rakiya Abubakar’s recovery. It is our desire that the release of all our remaining Chibok girls be treated with the urgency that the situation of a prolonged abduction of young schoolgirls demands.”
