In continuation of the campaign for the rescue of the Chibok girls, 33 year old Hasheem Suleiman, will today lead a walk from the Berger Junction to Unity Fountain, Abuja to press home the need to rescue the school girls from Chibok, abducted over one year ago.
Speaking at the Unity Fountain, venue for the sit-out of the BringBackOurGirls yesterday, Maryam Ekunaiye who invited the BBOG to the walk-out stated that Suleiman will be embarking on the trek as a solidarity campaign for the demand for the rescue of the Chibok girls.
Recall that Suleiman, had trekked from Lagos to Abuja to celebrate the victory of the President-elect Muhammadu Buhari and arrived the 20th of April, to a rousing crowd of Abuja residents who trooped out to catch a glimpse of him.
Suleiman had vowed to embark on a solo trek from Lagos to Abuja if All Progressives Congress (APC) presidential candidate Muhammadu Buhari emerged as the winner of the March 28th general election.
Suleiman’s arrival in Abuja caused traffic jams along the Kubwa expressway where thousands of fans gathered to see him and tomorrow’s walk is set to witness the same traffic with a large number of persons indicating interest to trek with him.
Meanwhile, the BBOG group has commended the military for its recent feet in rescuing some girls, women and children in the fight against the Boko Haram sect at the Sambisa Forest, urging them to continue the fight until the abducted Chibok girls are rescued.
“ We are commending the military for the rescue of the girls, women and children. We are hoping that they will continue in this feet. We hope that soon, we will hear the good news that the Chibok girls are rescued too,” a member of the group, Dr Emman Shehu.
Shehu however, questioned the authenticity of the videos released by the military, showing its fight in Sambisa; and urged the military to bring out credible videos.
that would show the bombardment of the enemies and not the ones showing unattacked enemies running to safety
