Bring Back Our Girls Abuja Protests Resume - Bella Naija

They’re back!

The Abuja #BringBackOurGirls group is back in action, now that the ban on their protests has been lifted. They have released a statement announcing the resumption of their daily protests:

The #BringBackOurGirls Abuja Family will today resume our daily sit-outs at the Unity Fountain from 3pm following the suit we filed against the FCT police Commissioner for banning protests in Abuja and against the backdrop of the counteracting statement credited to the Inspector General of Police reaffirming the constitutional and democratic rights of citizens to conduct peaceful assemblies and protests.

Our lawyers, Falana and Falana Chambers informed us this afternoon that we do not yet have a court hearing date for our suit challenging the power of the FCT Commissioner to infringe on our rights to peaceful assembly.

We had also yesterday, written to the Inspector General of Police requesting police protection for our #BringBackOurGirls gatherings.

We have therefore decided that we shall continue our daily sit outs until our girls are back and alive.

In the meantime, we have decided that we shall continue our daily sit outs until our girls are back and alive. We therefore wish to reassure members of the public that we shall remain civil, orderly and peaceful as we have been widely acknowledged to be since the last one month of our activities.

The second paragraph of the statement indicates that the group is still pursuing its N200 million lawsuit against Abuja Commissioner of Police, Joseph Mbu…

    Good! When citizens start challenging this unruly government with law suits and boldness things will eventually change! The reason Nigeria has been the way it’s been is because the people have been too lazy and indifferent in challenging these oppressors! This is just the beginning! If anything happens to any of these people, the Commisioner of police Joseph Mbu should be held responsible!
