Police In Barricade As #BringBackOurGirls Activists March To Buhari With Sealed Lips

Once again, officers of the Nigerian Police Force prevented the Bring Back Our Girls group from gaining access into Aso Rock to meet with President Muhammadu Buhari.

The Bring Our Girls Group led by Obiageli Ezekwesili had their lips were sealed with tapes in what was described as a ‘‘silent march”.

The activists, who were advocating for the release of the Chibok schoolgirls – that were kidnapped by Boko Haram terrorists, 869 days ago – were seen today marching in silence as they aim to press their demands for the rescue of the missing girls.

We cannot categorically ascertain if the group decided to have their lips ‘voluntarily’ sealed or they were pressured to do so, but one thing we can tell is, as they approached the presidential palace, they were met by a police barricade.

While reminding the government that today August 30, marked the 869th day the girls had been held in captivity, the police officers were spotted to have created a blockade in standoff.

One of its conveners, Obiageli Ezekwesili, said: ‘‘It is criminal and totally unacceptable for our IDPs to have to protest because of poor feeding at the camps,’‘

Some of the inscriptions the protesters held read, ‘Mr President, no more delay,’ ‘Mr. President, Act Now, We Want Results’ and ‘Mr. President, Decide NOW!’
