#BringBackOurGirls group postpones rally
#BringBackOurGirls group has rescheduled its rally to the presidential villa, Abuja, till Tuesday.
The march was billed for Friday, but the group said postponing it will allow Muslim members attend Juma’at prayers.
The group is campaigning for the release of over 200 schoolgirls abducted by the extremist group, Boko Haram, in 2014.
The new round of protest march began August 23 after Boko Haram released a video indicating the girls were alive.
The group said it would only exchange the girls for their members detained by the government across the country.
Although President Muhammadu Buhari said he would be willing to concede to the demand, the BringBackOurGirls group says the government has not done enough to rescue the girls.
After the release of the last video, the group vowed to march to the presidential villa every 72 hours until the government makes clear what steps it was taking to get the girls back.
Security operatives were seen at the Unity Fountain venue of the BBOG sit-out on Friday.
