Nigeria’s National Information Centre, NIC, has invited the #BringBackOurGirls campaign group to its general briefing.

The National Coordinator, NIC, Mike Omeri, in a statement said the invitation to the group and the general public is part of mandate to constantly brief Nigerians on the ongoing anti-terror campaign.

“In this regard, the Bring Back our Girls (BBOG) groups in Nigeria are invited to its media briefing on Tuesday 14th October, 2014. The event is scheduled to take place at the National Briefing Centre located at the National Orientation Agency (NOA) Headquarters, Abuja at2.00pm,” Mr. Omeri said.

Mr. Omeri said the NIC is also open to all concerned members of the public who wish for further clarifications especially in the counter terrorism, search and rescue effort in the North East.

He said the briefing will give an update to Nigerians on efforts by the security forces to end insurgency, rescue all those in captivity with insurgent groups and return normalcy to troubled parts of the Nigeria.

The NIC was set up in April 2014 following the global outrage on the abduction of over 200 schoolgirls from the hostel in Government Secondary School Chibok, in Borno State.

The center is to dispatch prompt update to the public and the media on government’s actions with regard to the campaign against insurgency in Nigeria, especially efforts made, to rescue the abducted girls.
