Aggrieved Mothers Of The Kidnapped School Girls Storm Abuja Protest At National Assembly [PHOTOS]

Aggrieved mothers and other
indigenes of Chibok, Borno
State, yesterday in Abuja,
Nigeria’s capital, staged a
protest to demand the
immediate rescue or release of
the more than 200 secondary
school girls abducted by
suspected Boko Haram
insurgents on April 14.
The protesters, most of them
members of the Kibaku
Development Association,
Chibok, converged at Eagle
Square in Nigeria’s capital.
From there, they marched to
the National Assembly to
submit a protest letter. The
women were led into the
premises of the national
legislature by a group of senior
female police officers.
Senators Barnabas Gemade and
Helen Esuene received the
protesters, telling them that the
Senate was considering a
motion in relation to the
abducted girls. The two
senators assured that the
content of the Senate’s
resolution would be
communicated to the women as
soon as possible. The senators
appealed to the protesters to
calm down and show restraint,
pledging that everything would
be done to secure the release
of the girls in due course.
Some of the protesting women,
who were all dressed in black,
seemed unimpressed by the
senators’ tepid
words. A number of the women
betrayed their emotion and
wept profusely, a few of them
rolling on the ground. See
