The convener of the bring back our girls (BBOG) advocacy group, Dr Oby Ezekwesili, as well as some members of the group have been left stranded at the airport after agreeing to join Nigerian troops to search for the missing Chibok girls in Sambisa forest.
The trip, Concise News gathers, is meant to search for the remaining abducted Chibok schoolgirls in the once dreaded forest, then occupied by Boko Haram insurgents.
Ezekwesili, in an e-mail to the Minister of Information and Culture, Lai Mohammed on Sunday informed the federal government of her group’s readiness to join the search for the missing girls in Sambisa forest by giving another conditional acceptance which the government met.
Here is the correspondence between Ezekwesili and Lai Mohammed on the planned guided tour of Sambisa forest today Monday:
Concise news, however, gathered that Ezekwesili and her BBOG group members have been left stranded at the airport, point of take off for the Sambisa trip, for up to an hour Monday morning.
Here is a tweet from BBOG confirming this:
