Recall that the group on Monday, lamented that it had to celebrate yet another Sallah without the 218 Chibok Girls, who were abducted by the Boko Haram sect, on April 14, 2014.
Speaking during its sit-out, one of the members of the group, Abubakar Yusuf stated that it was unfortunate that Sallah after Sallah celebrations since the abduction, the whereabouts of the girls were still unknown.
He called on the government to act fast and bring about the return of the girls whose families have not given up hope of beholding, even after two years.
The group expressed hope that in the celebration of another Sallah, the girls will be home to celebrate with their families.
