Oby Ezekwesili, former Minister of Education, and her Bring Back our Girls (BBOG) group were prevented from marching to the Aso Rock presidential villa on Tuesday.

The BBOG group had said it would resume its protest for the release of the remaining Chibok schoolgirls who are still being held by Boko Haram terrorists, as well as the lecturers of the University of Maiduguri who were part of the NNPC oil exploration team in the Lake Chad Basin.

But armed policemen were deployed to prevent the protesters from having access to the Villa.
