The #BringBackOurGirls group had stated that as criminal and unacceptable that IDPS have to protest to press in their demands of better treatment which the federal government ought to have taken care of.
Speaking during it’s press briefing during it’s march to the Villa recently, the group called on the government to act and manage the humanitarian crises especially in the North East.
The co-coverner of the group, Dr Oby Ezekwesili who read the group’s statement said, that the nation cannot degrade to people that aggravates the suffering of its most vulnerable population which include the IDPs.
“Our hearts and prayers are with our fellow citizens in the internally displaced persons’ camps in Nigeria and across the world. Their strong will and resolve, despite some of the most degrading conditions, continue to inspire hope.
“This is why it is criminal and utterly unacceptable that IDPs had to carry out a blockade of the highways in Borno State to press home their demand for better treatment. We cannot be a people that aggravates the suffering of its most vulnerable population. We must not allow this degenerate to situations where suffering citizens resort to self-justice,” she said.
She however expressed delight over the launch of the initiative of the Missing Persons Register which the group pioneered working with the National Human Rights Commission (NHRC) adding that the identities of all those that have been rescued are also very important and should be on the record.
