Pro-Buhari group clash with BBOG group in latest protest in Abuja.
The Nigeria police on Tuesday, 6th of September again prevented members of the #BringBackOurGirls group from going ahead with their planned rally to the Presidential Villa in Abuja, reports Daily Trust.
Tuesday’s march was supposed to be one in a series of protests which began August 23 after Boko Haram released a video indicating the kidnapped Chibok girls were alive.
Today, the group had forced its way through a police cordon at the Three Arms Zone,frustrated with the progress of the efforts to bring back these girls, as it sought a meeting with President Muhammadu Buhari.
The BBOG protesters that broke past the wall of anti-riot police officers ran in different directions and eventually got to the entrance of the presidential villa where they met a pro-Muhammadu Buhari group identified as ‘#With Buhari We Stand’.
Led by one Idris King, the pro-Buhari group said, “We are for peace. Buhari is a man of peace”. Idris King, who spoke on behalf of the new group said the “Chibok girls were only used as a scam”.He said President Buhari’s administration was doing everything possible to rescue the Chibok girls alive.
