#BringBackOurGirls protest leader arrested in Abuja – Live Update

chibok girls protest

The leader of the ongoing protest pressuring the Nigerian government to act and rescue over 240 schoolgirls abuducted in Chibok, Borno state has been arrested.

Naomi Mutah Nyadar was detained by the police early Monday morning at Asokoro police station.

“We believe it is in connection with the protests she is leading,” her lawyer, Samuel Ogala, of the Falana and Falana Chambers told PREMIUM TIMES.

Mrs. Nyadar has sustained the #BringBackOurGirls protest at the Unity Fountain, less than 200 metres away from the Transcorp Hilton Hotels venue of the planed World Economic Forum, WEF, starting in less than 52 hours. The protest ground could be sighted from the left wing of the hotel’s rooms.

The Nigerian government, eager to give the attendees of the World Economic Forum an impression of safety and serenity, shutdown all public offices and schools in the city.


Nigeria’s First Lady, accused of masterminding her arrest, was seen yesterday ‘crying’ over the abduction of the Chibok Schoolgirls.
