BBOG resumes protest at Presdiential Villa on Tuesday.

The BringBackOurGirls (BBOG) group has declared that it will resume its protest march to the Presidential Villa, Abuja starting from Tuesday next week.

The BBOG spokesman, Sesugh Akume, disclosed this in a statement on Thursday in Abuja, saying it was now over 1,305 days since the abduction of the 113 girls that were still in Boko Haram custody.

“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.

He said that President Muhammadu Buhari, in his Independence Day speech on October 1 promised to ensure the release of the remaining girls, but the president had reneged on his promise.

According to the group, since 82 of the Chibok schoolgirls abducted by Boko Haram were released in May, 2017, the Federal Government had relented.

The group added that it had on several occasions suspended the protest, hoping to see the fulfillment of the pledge made by the Federal Government.
