The Nigerian Police Force on Thursday, September 8, 2016 has taken over the Unity Fountain protest ground of Bring Back Our Girls movement in Abuja, the Nigerian capital, apparently to stall any form of protest by the group which is pressing for the recovery of the over 200 secondary school girls from Chibok Community in Borno State, North-East of Nigeria.
The girls were abducted from their dormitory in mid-April 2014 by Boko Haram terrorists.
The seizure of the ground by the police came hours after the Inspector-General, Ibrahim Idris, claimed that the BBOG’s protest constitutes a security breach.
Reacting to the new development, a BBOG leader, Aisha Yesufu, angrily said: “We are used to it. We were once called Boko Haram sympathisers and psychological terrorists.”
She claimed that “APC desperately wanted to use BBOG for their campaigns, which we resisted.”
Below is a video shared on Wednesday showing the police takeover of the venue for the BBOG protests.
