Abuja - Marilyn Ogar, of the Department of State Services (DSS), said the motive of the various groups protesting and mounting pressure on the Federal Government to free the Chibok girls were not genuine.
Ogar, spokesperson of DSS stated this on Wednesday while responding to a question at the National Information Centre on whether the groups had a franchise to protest.
"I think you are right if you refer to the group as a franchise, security forces know exactly what they are up to.
"If it is an ordinary movement seeking to put pressure on government and security forces to release these girls, there will be no need for the groups to have tags.
"Security forces know that they have bank account, they also know that they want to go to Asokoro extension to simulate movement that they are marching into Sambisa and Chibok,’’ she said.
Ogar further alleged that the group had arranged and brought in some foreign media to cover the false march.
She said that security forces were also aware that the groups had brought in some foreign experts to come and teach them how to beat security operations when they demonstrate.
Ogar accused the groups of carrying smear campaign against certain government officials, adding that they were aware that they paid visit prominent people soliciting funds.
