#BBOG urges FG to revisit its citizens solutions guide to end terrorism

The #BringBackOurGirls (#BBOG) movement has called on the Federal Government to revisit its "Citizens solutions to end terrorism’ document".

The movement in a statement signed by three of its conveners, Oby Ezekwesili, Aisha Yesufu and Florence Ozor expressed concern over the increased spate of terrorists attacks and insecurity in the country over the past few days.


It said the document contains 10 key action points to end terrorism crowdsourced from citizens which the movement handed to President Muhammadu Buhari on 8 July 2015 it met with him and his key officials.

"Within the past 2 weeks there have been sustained terrorist attacks in communities in Borno and Adamawa states where scores have died. Some attacks have been reported many more unreported and undocumented" the group said.

"Particularly, in the last 5 days within this week alone more than 50 were killed in a place of worship by a terrorist bomb blast, and another more than 50 innocent children murdered at night by a local ethnic militia. The gut-wrenching images are not sight to behold. This must be one of the worst weeks our movement has noticed in 3.5 years of advocacy" it added.

The group therefore calls on President Muhammadu Buhari to redouble his effort at ending the terrorism and insurgency.

It also wants a total end at the increased menace of insecurity in the country.
