The #BringBackOurGirls group has decried the increasing attacks and showmanship of the Boko Haram insurgents, noting that if urgent steps are not taken, those residing in the nation’s capital, who presume they are safe, will not be spared of the insurgency.
The group, which was reacting to a recent video clip in which Boko Haram leader, Abubakar Shekua, claimed that Gwoza town in Borno State is now a Caliphate, wondered why the federal government would keep denying the strength and the damage the terrorists are creating.
It also raised an alarm that without imminent response from the federal government to curtail the insurgency, the terrorists will not only take over the North East, it will also become a threat to the whole nation.
“Nigerians are living in denial. Many who do not live where it is happening are still denying what is happening in the North East. It is time that Nigerians wake up and realise that it is happening and something should be done fast. The Boko Haram threat is real and the threat is beyond a small community now.
“Let’s keep up with our advocacy. It has intrinsic value. We have to continue because this advocacy is lending a voice for not only the Chibok girls but for everyone who are affected by the terrorists.
“There are girls out there that don’t have a voice. We need to continue until these girls are brought back alive. We are urging the government to do what they are supposed to do”, it said.
