BBOG against misuse of funds for Chibok families

01 February 2016, 08:47Emeka Okonkwo

Abuja - The Bring Back our Girls (BBOG) campaign has called on government to check the possible misuse of money earmarked for families of school girls terrorists kidnapped in Chibok.

The concern comes ahead of Wednesday, which will mark 660 days since the Boko Haram sect kidnapped the more than 200 girls at the Chibok Government School in 2014.

“On another note, the BBOG group has warned government agencies against siphoning funds meant for the rehabilitation and welfare of the abducted girls’ parents,” the group said.

“We will continue to demand from our government and remind them that all Nigerian lives matter.”

Meanwhile, the group noted recently, two suicide bombers killed 16 people and injured many others at a market and military checkpoint in Chibok.

This occurred last week when the market was reopened after a long period of closure.

BBOG said in reaction to this, the Military had placed a curfew on the town in order to track down other intending bombers.

“We are however yet to receive any public address by the President on this.”
