#BringBackOurGirls resumes marches to the State House

9 October 2017

As announced 3 weeks ago on 14 September, the #BringBackOurGirls movement shall be resuming marches to the State House every 3 working days to underscore the issues we have been raising and seeking to be addressed to no avail.

Our demands have been:

A. The federal government must redouble efforts to immediately rescue or secure the release of our remaining 113 #ChibokGirls.

B. The FG should immediately send a high-powered delegation to Chibok to reassure disconsolate parents of our missing 113 girls that are still in captivity.

C. The federal government and the Nigeria military should immediately provide the public with factual and accurate details on the kidnapped persons including police personnel on the Borno-Adamawa road, and the NNPC exploration team.

D. The federal government should immediately invite the affected families of the victims of the Borno-Adamawa road kidnap, and the soldiers- NNPC-University of Maiduguri lecturers and staff for a full briefing on the tragedies that befell their relatives.

E. The FG to set up the structured systems of public reporting on each specific abduction case, the general management of our IDPs as well as the entire prosecution of the counter insurgency war.

Beginning from Thursday 12 October, we shall be meeting at Unity Fountain Abuja from 9 am to proceed on our marches every 3 working days.

We enjoin all who in the bond of our shared humanity empathise with our #ChibokGirls and the other victims; as well as all who understand the social contract of citizens holding governments to cater to the security and welfare of citizens should please feel free to join us and encourage others to do so.

Thank you.
