Today at Aso Rock President Muhammadu Buhari met with parents of the abducted Chibok school girls, who were there to protest the whereabouts of the missing school girls. Also at the peaceful protest was Oby Ezekwesili, Bukky Shonibare and a handful of other activists who have been at the forefront of the #BringBackOurGirls Movement.

This meeting comes 640 days after the girls were abducted by Boko Haram terrorists.

Members of the press were barred from the meeting but some at the closed door session have tweeted the goings on & it is being reported that the president Buhari’s attitude towards the parents was not just cold but he stormed out of the meeting angrily without reaching a resolution with the missing girls parents.

I just heard on CNN International that the Nigerian government have located the nearly 300 abducted Chibok school girls. The girls were abducted over 7 weeks ago by Boko Haram terrorists.

The military has has ruled out the use of force to rescue the girls, the state news agency quoted Chief of Defence Staff Air Marshal Alex Badeh as saying this on Monday, while addressing #BringBackOurGirls protesters outside the Defence Headquarters in Abuja.

He said,

“The good news for the parents of the girls is that we know where they are, but we cannot tell you. But where they are held, can we go there with force? We can’t kill our girls in the name of trying to get them back.”

Hmmmm ok you know where they are…the get them out! No excuses.
