The #BringBackOurGirls (BBOG) group has called on the federal government to release the details of the new investigation into the abduction of the Chibok school girls that the National Security Adviser announced to the public in January, 2016 at the approval of President Muhammadu Buhari.

“We also wish to remind Mr. President of two other matters we have been waiting: The release of the Major General Mohammed Sabo Fact-Finding Committee Report of 2014 into the abduction of Chibok School Girls submitted to the former administration.
“Details of the new investigation into the abduction of #ChibokGirls that National Security Adviser announced to the public in January, 2016 at the approval and instance of President Muhammadu Buhari,” he said.
The group has also urged the federal and the Borno State governments to reopen schools that have been closed down in Chibok for two years so that the children of the area will be able to resume their education.
It lamented that children in the area needed to resume their education after passing through the trauma caused by insurgency.
“We remind the Federal and Borno State Governments that the Chibok Community has made numerous demands for closed schools in their community to be reopened after more than two years of shutdown,” it said.
The group also urged government expedite action in the reconstruction of the Government Secondary School from where the Chibok Girls were abducted abducted as it was the only secondary school around the area were chilldren can attend.
“They have many times demanded for speedy reconstruction of the Government Secondary School from where our ChibokGirls were abducted.
“They have many times asked for progress report on the Safe Schools Initiative that was launched to especially benefit their schools and children and through which a much dramatized reconstruction ground breaking ceremony was done by the previous administration.
“We are similarly puzzled as to what has stalled the rebuilding and reopening of the school. We therefore advise the Federal and Borno State Governments to be accountable and responsive by engaging with Chibok community to resolve these matters peaceably,” it said.
