Missing Chibok Girls: BBOG Sends Delegates To Sambisa Forest

The Bring Back Our Girls group  finally acceded to the Federal Government request by sending a delegation on a one day tour of Sambisa Forest, to see efforts being made to recover the missing Chibok girls.

The BBOG delegation includes the co-convener of the group, Obiageli Ezekwesili; the spokesperson of the Chibok community, Manasseh Allen; Aisha Yusuf; and Ibrahim Usman.

Recall that the group had earlier given the Federal government conditions before they can become part of the operation.

But the government in a letter signed by the Minister of Information and Culture, Lai Mohammed, had rejected the conditions given by the group and insisted that the team would proceed on the trip as scheduled.

Following the position of government, the BBOG reviewed the conditions and indicated acceptance to participate in the exercise.

In a letter to the Minister on Sunday night, the group asked government to “quickly provide us more details of the tour duration and detailed logistics including the names of the local and international media on the delegation.”

“We need this information to enable us send you a more substantial letter conveying our acceptance to join the Guided Tour.”

 

As at press time,the tour had commenced.
