Last Wednesday made it 660 DAYS since our Chibok Girls were abducted. The day also marked an end to the 7-day mourning for the deceased of the attack by the insurgents in a market in Chibok the previous Wednesday. On the same day, the BBOG Group released the names of the casualties of the attack in which about 15 persons died and 45 others were injured.

We are still yet to receive any public address by the President on this. He was however in Ogun State last Tuesday to celebrate with the State Governor.

In another development, the General Officer Commanding (3 Division) of the Nigeria Army, Brig. Gen. Mohammed Sani Aliyu, during a chat with the media at the Division’s headquarters in Jos has vowed that the military would spare nothing to bring back the girls.

We will continue to demand from our government and remind them that all Nigerian lives matter!

Join a gathering in your city to stand for our girls:

Abuja – Unity Fountain, Daily, 4:30 – 6pm
Lagos – Falomo Roundabout, Ikoyi, Saturdays, 11am-1pm
Osogbo – Freedom Park, Sundays, 5pm
