The Bring Back our Girls (BBOG) activists led by former Minister of

Solid Minerals Oby Ezekwesili has written an open letter to the

federal government of Nigeria.

In the copy of the letter obtained by, the group

lamented that the federal government has been unresponsive and

unyielding to the group's effort to discuss the plight of the

remaining 195 Chibok girls still missing.

Read the letter in full:

"Members of the press and the wider public may recall that our

Movement had at the invitation of the Federal Government embarked on a

Guided Tour of Sambisa Forest on 16th and 17th January, 2017. Upon the

safe return of the four members of our movement who toured the forest

and the benefit of knowledge and facts they gathered, we wrote a

letter to the Federal Government.

"In our letter dated January 23, 2017 (now attached to this Press

Statement) we highlighted our key observations from our members' visit

to the war zone. Concluding on the basis of facts and evidence

obtained from the Sambisa Forest tour, we conveyed a more pointed

demand on the Federal Government to negotiate and bring back our

remaining 185 Chibok Girls.

"Curiously and in stark contrast to the exuberant fanfare with which

the Federal Government extended its invitation to our movement for our

letter conveying our message from the visit to the war zone has met

with deafening silence. Since our letter was sent to the Federal

Government over two months ago, our Movement has not received a reply

from the Federal Government.

"We consider it grossly objectionable that the Federal Government

chose to be unresponsive to a letter that was addressed and delivered

to the Minister of Information as well as copied and sent to the Vice

President, the Chief of Staff of the President and the Minister of


"It is for that reason that we have decided to adopt an open medium to

communicate the content of that letter to the Federal Government. We

waited long enough in the last two months following our return from

Sambisa Forest. We hereby publish the letter in order to convey a

strong message to the Federal Government that it cannot scuttle public

scrutiny and demand for accountability on the status of the remaining

195 Chibok Girls. Our movement believes in the constitutional duty of

government to be accountable and to provide answers to citizens on

issues that affect them.

"We request the rest of the Nigerian people and others around the

world who have stood in empathy for the cause of our Chibok Girls to

join our movement in prevailing on the Federal Government to act on

our Demand.

"The Federal Government owes the remaining 195 Chibok Girls, the

Justice of immediate rescue. Let that be done before April 14. 2017.

Three years is indefensible time for our young women to be left in

terrorist captivity."
