BBOG raises alarm over Chibok girls

The #BringBackOurGirls, (BBOG) advocacy group has accused the federal government of blocking their moves to meet the 106 of the freed Chibok girls currently undergoing rehabilitation at the Women Development Centre, Abuja.

Co-convener, Aisha Yesufu, spoke on Thursday, at the launch of a research by Partnership for African Social Governance Research (PAGSR) and Centre for Democracy and Development (CDD), using #BringbackOurGirls as the case study.

She insisted that the group would continue to make demands to government to ensure that the girls receive the right psychosocial therapy and are allowed to be in touch with their parents and families.

Her words: “The government has not allowed us to see the girls, but we are okay with that even though for three years, we led the agitation for their agitation.

“Our role is to ensure they are allowed to be in touch with their parents and are given quality education.

“We will continue to monitor what government is doing and ensure they don’t fall into a trap”.

Yesufu tasked the government to do more by ensuring the rescue of the remaining 130 girls still held by Boko Haram.
