#BringBackOurGirls group march to Presidential Villa to commemorate 6th month of Chibok schoolgirls' abduction

In continuation of Global Week of Action by the #BringBackOurGirls, BBOG, campaign group to commemorate the sixth month of abduction of 219 girls of Government Secondary School, Chibok, Borno State, the group is set to march to Aso Villa, Abuja, today.

The group, in a statement by its Media Coordinator, Mr. Rotimi Olawale, yesterday, said it had already sought audience with President Goodluck Jonathan and would be going there today to meet with him.

The statement read: “#BringBackOurGirls Abuja family wishes to notify members of the public that we have requested for an appointment, and will be marching to meet with our President on Tuesday (today) October 14.

“The objective of our march to the Villa is to convey the urgency for the immediate rescue of our girls and to hear directly from our President and the Commander in Chief of our Armed Forces the accurate status of the rescue effort for our Chibok Girls, whose six months in captivity remains a source of deep anguish to their parents, Nigerians and people all over the world, who believe in our shared humanity.

“The last 180 days have been one of dashed hopes, intense pain, and confusion for the families due to the lack of accurate information from government on the current status of rescue operation.

“The march will be joined by some of the parents of the abducted girls, as we continue to stand in solidarity with the abducted 219 girls and their families.”
