The Bring Back Our Girls (BBOG) movement on Thursday wondered how the Nigerian military were able to “triumphantly” kill Boko Haram leader Abubakar Shekau on four occassions without rescuing the abducted Chibok School girls.
According to the Obiageli Ezekwesili, leader BBOG during a protest to the Presidential Villa Abuja, time had completely run out and a decisive action was needed to rescue the abducted girls.
She said, “Another key issue in the last 72 hours is the military’s announcement that Boko Haram leader, Abubakar Shekau, was fatally wounded during air raids.
“We want it on record that this is at least the fourth time the Nigerian state has triumphantly announced killing this fellow.
“Today, day 864 since the abduction of our girls, time has completely run out. It is time to take decisive action and bring them home. No more delays.”
It will be recalled that the military had on Tuesday said an unprecedented and spectacular air raid “fatally wounded” Abubakar Shekau in his shoulders.
“Those Boko Haram terrorists commanders confirmed dead include Abubakar Mubi, Malam Nuhu and Malam Hamman, amongst others, while their leader, the so-called ‘Abubakar Shekau’, is believed to be fatally wounded on his shoulders. Several other terrorists were also wounded,” Sani Kukasheka Usman, spokesman of the army, had said.
