Following its attempt to continuously urge world leaders to help in the rescue of the abducted Chibok school girls, the BBOG will be meeting with the visiting UK Parliamentary Under Secretary of State for the Foreign and Commonwealth Office (Minister for the Middle East and Africa), Tobias Ellwood.

Disclosing details of the meeting, the group’s spokesperson, Abubakar Abdullahi, stated that  the meeting will be held  at the British High Commission.

“We will be in a meeting with the visiting UK Parliamentary Under Secretary of State for the Foreign and Commonwealth Office (Minister for the Middle East and Africa), Tobias Ellwood MP, on Wednesday, 28th September, 2016. The meeting will be held at the British High Commission by 2.30pm,” he said.

Recall that the group had earlier urged world leaders and agencies that have previously expressed intentions to support the rescue efforts of the abducted Chibok girls to re-engage and adopt a strategic rescue position especially after the release of the recent video by their captors.

Speaking during a press briefing, head, strategic team of the group, Aisha Yesufu had stated that the Chibok girls were global citizens and as such deserve so.

“For 28 months since the abduction, we call on the Governments of the United States, United Kingdom, Canada, France, China, Australia, Israel, and agencies like the United Nations, African Union, and all who previously expressed intentions to support the rescue efforts, to re-engage and adopt a strategic rescue position. As global citizens, this is the least our #ChibokGirls deserve,” she said.

She had also appealed to Nigerians to continue to pray for the girls while urging them to join the group during it’s planned march to the Villa.

“We appeal to all citizens empathetic to the cause of our girls to hold them and their parents in prayers, and commit to joining our march to the Villa in the coming week. Our government, and the World, cannot continue to fail these innocent young women whose only crime is their decision to be educated. If we do, we would have failed to defend our civilization and shared humanity,” she said.
