The Bring Back Our Girls (BBOG) Movement on Wednesday implored the Federal Government to speed up effort at rescuing the abducted Chibok school girls.

Mr Sesugh Akume, the spokesperson of BBOG told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Lagos that time was running out as the girls would have spent two years in captivity by April 14.

NAN reports that the female students were kidnapped from the Government Secondary School in Chibok, Borno State, on the night of April 14, 2014 by the Boko Haram insurgents.

Akume said it was the duty of the Nigerian government to rescue the Chibok girls from Boko Haram captivity.

“On Jan. 14, we met with President Mohammadu Buhari and he promised to open an investigation into the abduction of these girls. It is three months now and that investigation is yet to be completed.

“Opening that investigation will lead to credible intelligence that will lead to the rescue of the Chibok girls.

“By tomorrow it will be 730 days since these girls were abducted. The previous government was slow in taking action, this new government gave us hope”, he said.

Akume said that BBOG movement would continue to agitate until the girls were released.

“We will not allow Nigerians, we will not allow the government, to forget the girls or treat the demand for their release as an irritating issue.

“We will focus on it, and we will keep calling on the government to ensure that the girls are brought back home, “Akume said.
