bring back our girls

The Bring Back Our Girls coalition will be meeting President Muhammadu Buhari on Wednesday to inform him that the group is getting a bit worried with the delay in making inroads into the rescue of the 219 girls kidnapped from their school in Chibok, Borno state last year.

The girls were abducted on the 14th of April 2014 and since then, have remained in captivity or so it seems.

A member of the group, Sesugh Akumen, speaking on behalf of the group said it secured the appointment with the President where issues of the abducted girls will be discussed. He added that it is high time the President addressed Nigerians on the effort made so far in rescuing the girls. 

He said “During this meeting, we shall not only convey our deep anxieties at the failure of the Federal Government to successfully rescue and bring back our 219 Chibok girls after 443 days, but will demand a specific timeline that the new administration may have for bringing back our girls and other abducted citizens and ending the insurgency.

“We shall also use this meeting as a citizens’ movement to understand, and contribute to the strategy for countering terrorism, ensuring post-insurgency recovery, and other related issues.”
