Ezekwesili Agrees To Join Troops On A Tour Of Sambisa Forest

Co-convener of the Bringbackourgirls, Dr Obiageli Ezekwesili, has finally agreed to join Nigerian troops and others tomorrow to search for the abducted Chibok schoolgirls in Sambisa forest.

Ezekwesili, in an e-mail to the Minister of Information and Culture, Alhaji Lai Mohammed at 8.20pm on Sunday indicated the interest of her group to join the search for the missing girls in Sambisa forest by giving another conditional acceptance which the government met.

Read below the correspondence between Ezekwesili and Alhaji Mohammed on the planned guided tour of Sambisa forest tomorrow, sent by Segun Adeyemi, an aide of the minister.

”At 8.20 PM on Sunday Evening, #BBOG contacted the Minister of
Information and Culture, Alhaji Lai Mohammed, to indicate its
conditional acceptance of the offer to travel with the team heading
for the NE to witness first-hand the military’s ongoing search for the
Chibok Girls.

This came as a surprise, considering that the #BBOG had earlier given
impractical conditions for joining the trip, and the FG had rejected
those conditions But the FG still responded, meeting all the fresh conditions
stipulated by the #BBOG in the conditional acceptance letter

Please find below the details of the latest communication between the
FG and the #BBOG

  1. I pray for God's covering and help for them. But I wonder why Buhari's daughter that hijacked #BBOG is not the one being invited. Mummy Oby, we love you... Please tread gently. God is with you as a Mighty and Terrible One.

    1. God be with you all

      E no easy

      @Buhari pikin no dey list?😈


  2. Bomb blasts in University of Maiduguri today. Casualties include a proff. God help us o

  3. They must tell the press everything smdh

  4. Mrs Oby Ezekwesili before you embark on this aimless peregrination, please diplomatically engage Ola Awoniyi of the AFP, there's something the rescued Chibok girls are not allowed to SAY during interviews. What is it?
    Why is there no live session interviews on the rescued girls?The public has questions for them. Why?
    Think Madam. Think. This is Nigeria. There is a reason the later administrations became reactionary instead of proactive.
    I don talk my own.

    1. Once when I was young, My dad chastised me for playing dirty with the other kids and hurting myself. I cried and expected to be comforted by him. One minute became one hour and no comfort. See, I had become tired of crying but was too ashamed to stop without getting the attention from him. Lol.

      Oby isn't unaware of everything you've outlined up there, madam just doesn't know how to stop.


  5. Madam think am well oooo,Buhari and wife should join oo too

  6. I hope it's not a " Trap"!

    1. I don't think so....The other bokoharam woman is also going with them....can't remember her hausa woman like that,that has access to chibok girls and bokoharam


  7. Oby, Oby, Oby, how many times I call u? But u dey gi there as d security officer way u be abi Wetin. The next tin way una go hear say Dem see some girls free for d sambisa.

    Na Den I go knw say d missing girls name scam. Na eye we dey look.

  8. They want to kill this woman. APC is the biggest scam.
