The newly confirmed Inspector-General of Police, IBRAHIM IDRIS, has said that the protests by the Bring Back Our Girls BBOG coalition constitute a security threat to public peace and order.
According to him, the Chibok girls’ campaigners must understand that in the exercise of their rights, they must not trample on other peoples’ rights through “over-dramatisation of emotions, self-serving propaganda and disrespect of public office holders.”
IDRIS said this on Wednesday when the National President of the National Council of Women Societies, GLORIA SHODA, and other executive members visited him at the Force headquarters, Abuja.
The IG sympathised with the parents of the abducted Chibok schoolgirls, noting that the government had invested huge resources to ensure that they were rescued and re-united with their families.
He said, “However, the activities of the Bring Back Our Girls group in Abuja, recently, is becoming worrisome and a threat to public peace and order.
The BBOG in its reaction, denied being unruly or constituting a public nuisance during its street protests.
