The protesting Bring Back out Girls (BBOG) group was today blocked from gaining access to the presidential Villa by police and other security agents.
The BBOG group marched in Abuja this morning in a peaceful protest over the abduction of the Chibok schoolgirls abducted two years ago.
The group was to march into Aso Rock and the Presidential villa to show their seriousness for the cause and to force the President to listen to them.
But they have now been barred for going any further.
She said it was not right for the group to be denied access to see President Muhammadu Buhari as they had followed due protocol.
According to The Cable, the group further said the comment credited to Sidiq Abubakar, the chief of air staff, saying the video clip recently released by Boko Haram was “technically deficient” shows government’s lack of transparency and truthful in its fight against the insurgency.
