BBOG will march to the Presidential Villa today, August 22

Members of the Bring Back Our Girls (BBOG)campaign will march to the Presidential Villa today, August 22, 2016, as part of their plan to put pressure on the Federal Government to take action on the issue of the missingChibok girls.

The group’s co-founder, Oby Ezekwesili earlier announced that they would not hesitate to march to the Presidential Villa everyday if that would lead to the rescue of the abducted Chibok girls.

Ezekwesili said this following a video of the Chibok girls that was recently released by Boko Haram.

According to Leadership, a member of the group, Tunji Olanrewaju said today’s march will begin around 9 am.

Olanrewaju also said “The March was anchored on three core issues which include the plea for rescue video released by Boko Haram, the worsening humanitarian conditions of IDPs and fellow citizens in the Northeast and the on-going military arms procurement trials.”

In April 2016, members of the Bring Back Our Girls group marched to the Presidential Villa in commemoration of the 2nd anniversary of the abduction of the Chibok girls.

Meanwhile, a pro-Buhari group, the Buhari Media Support Group, (BMSG). has  urged the BBOG group to stop the proposed march to the Presidential Villa.
