“For SSS operatives to attempt to confiscate the travel documents of Mrs. Ezekwesili and seek to prevent her from boarding her flight just because she is leading the campaign to get the Goodluck Jonathan administration to do something meaningful to free the abducted Chibok schoolgirls speaks eloquently about government’s lack of seriousness looking for these innocent girls who were the first place abducted because government abdicated its responsibility of providing their school the needed security. This means Nigeria has returned to the dark days of military dictatorship when the rights of were trampled upon impunity,” Ikanya said.[eap_ad_4]
