Nobody can threaten #BringBackOurGirls – Oby Ezekwesili

Published

on

According to reports, the leader of the #BringBackOurGirls (#BBOG) advocacy, Oby Ezekwesili, on Thursday said nobody can threaten members of the group since they are bonafide citizens of the country.

Ezekwesili, who said they are guaranteed their rights by the constitution, advised the Inspector General of Police, Ibrahim Idris, to educate himself properly about democracy and citizens’ right to peaceful assembly.

She also said the previous administration used similar tactics to violate their rights, but those (rights) were upheld by the constitution and court.

Speaking at the group’s gathering in Abuja, Ezekwesili 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.”
