May 29, 2014 – President Jonathan’s Hired Thugs Beat Up, Attacked Chibok Girls Protesters In Abuja

Following our march to meet with President Jonathan, during which he was represented by a delegation led by the Secretary to the Government, a speech was read on his behalf advising our movement #BringBackOurGirls, Abuja Family: “…that protests should be directed at the terrorists…”.

Last Monday May 26th , being the 27th day of our daily gathering at the Unity Fountain and the 42nd day since the abduction day of our girls, we observed a large contingent of a new group that arrived in over 30 Federal Government SURE P Buses with a message that aligned with what we had been told during our meeting with the Federal Government delegation.

Understanding fully the constitutional guarantee of every citizens’ right to their expression and to peaceful gathering, we continued with our own meeting in a new location, having lost our usual spot to the new group. Regrettably, we then witnessed patterns of escalating aggression toward our group by this new group.

In our bid at stemming any further aggravation, we wrote a Letter of Complaint dated 28th May to the Inspector General of Police and the FCT Commissioner of Police which was duly received by their respective offices. In our letter, attached to this Statement, we reminded the Nigerian Police that we have been a group, which has conducted itself with utmost civility in the course of our campaign for the abducted Chibok girls. We asked the Nigerian Police Force to be available to reprimand the aggressive group and remind them of the need to conduct themselves similarly and to desist from any form of confrontation to our group.

Unfortunately, what we feared would happen unfolded, and tragically with officers of the Nigerian Police Force looking on, thugs, hooligans, miscreants dressed in the red, yellow, and white t-shirts with the inscription: #ReleaseOurGirls Boko Haram” burst upon our group breaking chairs, and bottles on the heads of members of #BringBackOurGirls, Abuja, many of the women broke down. They snatched phones and handbags of ladies in our group and also attacked the local and international media correspondents, confiscating and breaking their cameras. The police, at a point, arrested two of the ringleaders, but before our very eyes, released them barely 10 minutes after.

By this Statement, we are calling the attention of the President, the Federal Government and the international community to the descent to anarchy against our group, which simply emerged as a women-led civil society group driven by a response to the plight of the abducted Chibok girls and their families.

We know that this is a violation of our fundamental right to peaceful assembly and freedom of association, but we remain resolute in standing with the Chibok girls. We invite every Nigerian with goodwill towards the abducted girls to our daily events. Tomorrow, we shall stand in solidarity with them through a National Symposium, which will be holding at Thisday Dome, with live broadcast on Channels TV. We shall return to the Unity Fountain on Friday, May 31, 2014 and will continue with our daily advocacy. We shall continue to demand that those with the responsibility to protect our lives and our welfare to BringBackOurGirls.

Signed:

Hadiza Bala Usman

    Every bad thing that happens in Nigeria is been directed to the president, most bad roads in Nigeria are state and local government roads, even the employment of youth should be a collective effort.

    for every evil things we look up to the president while the state and local government who also read budget of money every year are busy stealing our money.

    whoever want to protest should go to their governor, local government chairman or those who claim to be traditional rulers, enough of all these in Abuja

    ***** media painting Jonathan black as a dictator for their manufactured story of the missing chibok school girls. At the same time, using the same ***** media to pave way for the west and america governments with hidden intention of neocolonialism into Nigeria. Therefore bringing the type of evil democracy that is happening in Libya presently with bombs while the boko haram will do the dirty job on the ground as usual. The same western and american assassination foreign policy on past Africa leaders will descend on Jonathan just like they did to gaddafi recently. My suggestion to Nigeria president is referendum.

        A people without knowledge of their past history, origin and culture is like a tree without root. Therefore Mr Kingsley, I suggest you re-educate yourself by researching about your history, origin and culture rather than using this discourse analysis medium to hurl insults. In other words, I can only comment on this particular issue again once you have re-educated yourself and @ MON, we need great minds like you to help educate our lost brothers such as Mr Kingsley and co.

    Dear Bisi Jimmy, first of all i will like to thank God for the present president in Nigeria, he is a man with big heart, as long as he remain in that seat, christian have hope, there are many things happening in Nigeria today, if we really settle down we will find the truth.

    Read the news everyday, the so called boko haram get members from Jobless youth they pay some money as their salary, do you think the leader of boko haram is super rich, do you think he get sponsor outside Nigeria, i read news from media everyday and peoples comment i just laugh, the north has taking us for fools since they have been ruling the country, i bet you even till today we are still acting as a fools.

    if boko haram are killing for allah, why don’t buhari, atiku, bangida,sanusi,all northern governors, amir and those muslim senators come together to end this mess, if western education is a sin as they claim, what about the children of these people i just mentioned, if not for the little girls, i do not think America and other country will render any help to us, because the know boko haram is a political instrument.

    If you like believe it or not the northerners are still in power in Nigeria, because those that sponsor this boko haram are northern leaders, now the are happy with what the media and people are saying about our president as the worst Nigeria president, they want to be the best, they have moved all their evil plans now to APC party, make a northerner the president of Nigeria and all christian will suffer take it or leave it.

    Let us all put pressure on those northern leaders like we are doing to our President, let us blame them for all the evils happening in Nigeria today.
