Soldiers Arrest 65 Parents of Chibok Girls,Says It is Order from Above

Nigerian soldiers have detained about 65 parents of the abducted Chibok girls who were on their way to Abuja from Borno to participate in the protest of the BringBackOurGirls (BBOG) movement scheduled for today. The 65 parents were stopped at Askira, near Chibok, in Borno State by soldiers acting on “orders from above.” Tunji Olanrewaju, a member of the BBOG strategic team and spokesman said:
“Over 120 of them (Chibok parents) were supposed to come for the march on Thursday.  So they were leaving Chibok this morning because it is a two-day trip. They set out at 7a.m.  – about 64 or 65 of them – in several buses, but they were stopped at Askira by soldiers” “Initially, they said the order was from Maiduguri, but later they said it was from above.” The first batch of the Chibok parents had already left for Abuja before the 65 parents were stopped. The BBOG citizen movement has scheduled today to re-engage with President Muhammadu Buhari on the reason why 219 Chibok schoolgirls have remained in captivity despite his promise to rescue them.
