Enough is enough: Police IG warns BBOG protesters

08 September 2016, 16:06

Abuja - The Inspector-General of Police, Ibrahim Idris, on Wednesday said the continuous protest emebarked upon by the #BringBackOurGirls (BBOG) group poses threat to public peace, stating that he has had enough, YNaija reports.

He said this while speaking during a visit by the National President of the National Council of Women Societies (NCWS), Gloria Shoda and other members of the Council executive to his office in Abuja.

He said, “The police management is aware of the agitation and the plight of parents of the abducted Chibok schoolgirls and other civil groups. As parents ourselves, we sympathize with them in these trying moments.

“Evidently, the government has invested huge resources in ensuring that the girls are rescued and re-united with their various families.

“However, the activities of the BringBackOurGirls group in Abuja, the nation’s capital recently, are becoming worrisome and threat to public peace and order.

"#BringBackOurGirls protagonists must understand that in the exercise of their rights, they must not trample on other peoples’ rights through over-dramatization of emotions, self-serving propaganda and disrespect of public (office) holders.

“The police will not sit on the fence and watch such a scenario unfold. The rights of law-abiding citizens must be protected within the context of the law and we believe that enough is enough.”

News24 previously reported that the group on Wednesday said it would defy the ban on public protests by the Nigeria Police Force and carry on with its rally.

The group insists that the police have no power under the law to ban rallies.
