BBOGThe #BringBackOurGirls advocacy group, yesterday, said it has concluded plans to drag the President, Christian Association of Nigeria, CAN, Pastor Ayo Oritsejafor and the federal government to court, over the $9.3 million cash found in the cleric’s private jet in South Africa, which was allegedly meant for the purchase of arms for the Nigerian government.

The group, which stated this in Abuja during its sit out, said there should be more public outcry on the issue.

BBOG also said they can confirm that the alleged Chibok girl, Susan Ishaya, who was found wandering in a town in Adamawa State, after she was abandoned by Boko Haram insurgents, is now in Abuja.

According to them, “We need more pressure than ever; this is tax payers money, we must speak up anytime an injustice is done especially when it’s about infiltration of arms because that is what brought us here. There is need for a louder cry about this because quietly people are forgetting about the $9.3 million, it will continue if we don’t do anything.

“By next week you will have something different, we are working with our lawyers to sue Ayo and the federal government.

Away from the $9.3 million scandal, the #BringBackOurGirls group expressed sadness that the true identity of the abandoned Chibok girl has not been confirmed.

The group expressed the hope that she would be re-united with her family soonest.

“The name they gave is not from Chibok. We have the list and the name is not there. What we have on the list is Susan Yakubu. Teachers should be able to know her. Her identity is still not confirmed; this is extremely sad”, the group said.
