The Bring Back Our Girls group says it will commence a fresh round of protests to ensure the release of the remaining 196 Chibok girls held captive by Boko Haram terrorists.
In a statement on Tuesday evening, the #BBOG group said its protest will begin on January 8, 1000 days after over 200 girls were abducted.
The group said; “Painfully, we are only a few days away from#Day1000 of their tragic abduction with no communication nor clarification nor status report on the negotiation the Federal Government previously stated was on-going for the release of the remaining 196 girls still with terrorists,”.
“Our Movement is therefore again constrained to resume our marches to mark the #DAY1000 tragic milestone. Our Movement expects the President to regard the #Day1000 milestone as an over due time to bring this horrific saga to a final closure.
“We shall therefore carry out a series of activities for a period of one week, using our 24-hourly marches to compel our Federal Government to accelerate the decision and actions necessary to bring back the rest of our Chibok girls to their grossly disappointed parents.”
“Unlike our other Global Weeks of Action carried out over the last thirty two months of our advocacy the#Day1000 version in Abuja shall be themed along various issues related to our #ChibokGirls.
“We shall gather to commence our marches on Sunday the 8th at 3pm at the Unity Fountain and proceed to our designated destination. With effect from Monday until Saturday being 14 January, we shall daily gather at 9am at the Unity Fountain to proceed on our marches to the Villa Gate,”.
