Bring BACK Our Girls Campaign Leader Oby Ezekwesili Reacts to IGP's Statement

Oby Ezekwesili,leader of the Bring Back Our Girls campaign has reacted to the Inspector General of Police threat asking the group to stop their protest and allow the government work.
Speaking at the group's gathering in Abuja, she said;

“our response is that he (IGP) should ask for the file that recorded our advocacy between 2014 and 2015 when the previous administration used all kinds of tactics similar to this one to try to violate our constitutional liberty. Not only did the constitution uphold that right, the court also upheld our rights. He should just read this files, he should be able to find what he needs in order to educate himself properly about democracy and citizens’ right to peaceful assembly.

  “We are a peaceful movement as everyone knows, so we are not changing anything, no retreat, no surrender. Are our girls back? If the government says that we are unreasonable in demanding for our Chibok girls in the way that we have been demanding for them since 2014, they need to show the evidence that counters our stance.”
