Group Demands Clarity On Extent Of Insurgency


The Bring Back our Girls Group (BBOG) is concerned at conflict views politicians have given regarding control the Boko Haram has in the terror-ridden Northeast.

Borno Central Senator, Baba Kakar Garbai, and Governor Kashim Shettima(Borno State) have made contrasting claims about the state of insurgency in the region.

The legislator insists the terror group is in control of some local government area while Shettima said the Army was in total control.

On the back of this, about 700 days since more than 200 schoolgirls were abducted in Chibok, BBOG is demanding clarity.

It has urged the federal government to assemble a team of independent media and civil society advocates to join the military in a tour of all the territories said to have been reclaimed from the insurgents.

In addition, a call has been made to President Muhammadu Buhari to embark on a tour of areas mostly hit by insurgency in the Northeast so as to give reassurance to local communities.

Furthermore, the BBOG has requested government release names of citizens rescued so far from the insurgents’ captivity, and as well as the plans for rehabilitation, reintegration and resettlement.

As a monitoring effort, the organisation said a special conference will be held on the 14th of every month to present reports on activities connected to the rescue of the girls Boko Haram kidnapped at the Government School in Chibok, Borno State.
