Members of the Bring Back Our Girls group campaigning for the release of the Chibok girls abducted by Boko Haram have stormed the entrance of Aso Villa in defiance mood insisting that against all odds, they must be allowed to meet President Muhammadu Buhari. The group came with some parents of the missing Chibok girls, early today, Thursday.
The spokesperson of the Bring Back Our Girls group, Oby Ezekwesili in an emotion laden statement, said they had earlier met with the president on July 8, and they are at the Villa to discuss the promises he made to them. The group were instead met by a government team comprising the Minister of Women Affairs, Aisha Al-Hassan, as well as the Minister of Defense, Monsur Dan-Ali, the National Security Adviser, Mohammed Monguno, and the Chief of Defense Staff, Abayomi Olonishakin.
The spokesperson of the Government team, Mrs. Aisha Al-Alhassan, told the group that the President was meeting with important guests and because of the short notice given by the group, it was impossible to meet the President.
We gathered that the President was currently in a meeting the President of Benin Republic.
