Leader of the Bring Back Our Girls (BBOG) movement, Oby Ezekwesili has said that the group will not give up its struggle until the abducted Chibok girls are rescued.
Ezekwesili made the comment after Inspector General of Police, Ibrahim Idris, on Wednesday, September 7, termed the group a threat to security.
“The previous administration used all kinds of tactics similar to this one to try to violate our constitutional liberty,” the BBOG leader said according to The Cable.
“Not only did the constitution uphold our rights, the courts also upheld our rights so he should just read his files. He would be able to find what he needs to educate himself properly about democracy and citizens’ rights.
“There’s no retreat no surrender. Are our girls back? In addition to bring back our girls, we also NOW have a hashtag that says, #AreOurGirlsBack?
“If the government says that we are unreasonable for demanding for our Chibok girls in the way that we have been demanding for them since 2014 ,they need to show the evidence that counters our stance," she added.
Idris’ comments came after police officers prevented BBOG members from holding a protest at the Presidential Villa.
The group has vowed to march to the villa every 72 hours until the government speaks on plans to rescue the girls.
