The #BringBackOurGirls (BBOG) group has urged federal government to give justice to the abducted Chibok girls adding that its advocacy for the girls will not stop until the remaining 218 Chibok girls were given justice by being rescued from the hands of the Boko Haram sect.
In a press statement released by the group and signed by leaders of the group, Aisha Yesufu and Dr Oby Ezekwesili, the group vowed to continue to stand and be the voice of the missing girls which was the promise it has made to the parents of the abducted girls.
“We hold strong to our vow made to the heartbroken parents of our #ChibokGirls that until, and unless, we reach such a time as factual evidence is provided to the contrary that our girls are alive, our demand remains,” it said.
The group while lamenting that the girls have stayed too long in captivity, stated that the remaining 218 Chibok girls needed to be rescued as it was their right as citizens of the nation.
“Our hope has endured for over two years so far and shall not waver until our President, the Federal Government and the Military give our 218 girls the justice of rescue that is owed them as citizens of Nigeria,” it said.
The group has earlier expressed shocked that two years after the abduction of the Chibok school girls, the federal government has not offered the public any credible information on the whereabouts of the abducted girls.
It has called on the government and the military to urgently re-strategise and work towards bringing back the rest of the Chibok girls who have stayed in the hands of their abductors for over two years now.
“We hereby advise our Army Chief to urgently re-strategize, strengthen and channel the resources of the military into everything possible to locate and rescue our #ChibokGirls and other citizens of Nigeria who are still in the terrorist’s den,” it said.
