Bring Back Our Girls campaigners in Abuja are planning to challenge the ban on their protests made by Abuja’s Commissioner of Police, Joseph Mbu.

Mbu reportedly banned the protests saying they could be hijacked by unscrupulous individuals who could potentially threaten state security.

He made the decision after some individuals suspected to be “pro-government thugs” attacked a group of women protesting.

The protesters’ spokesman, Rotimi Olawale, said in an e-mail statement to Reuters, “We shall be accompanying our lawyers to the court where we hope to obtain an immediate restraint on this unconstitutional, undemocratic and repressive act.”

      The things you say never cease to baffle me. For the sake of keeping it civil I’ll stop there.

    Please lets be careful that something else doesn’t come out of this again. I don’t support going to court not because I support the ban but because we don’t need all this trouble now. We already have a lot on our plate & could do without another wahala. Please can we try dialogue 1st; there must be other ways to address this ban, Let the court be a last resort. This could only become a distraction; we still have some innocent girls lost out there + I hear they are sick. No time pls
