The brutal killing of Hauwa Leman by Boko Haram terrorists has been received with mixed feelings as the BBOG group embark on protest to the Presidential Villa, Abuja.
There is an ongoing protest by members of the Bring Back Our Girls group including former Minister of Education, Obiageli Ezekwesili, over the killing of a Red Cross health worker , Hauwa Leman, by Boko Haram terrorists.

The group in an unusual manner on Tuesday, October 15, embarked on a quiet protest to the Presidential Villa, Abuja.

While speaking to correspondents, one of the group leaders said: “This is a different kind of protest, unlike our usual chanting we would be very quiet. No chanting of any kind and we would be going in threes.”

It was gathered that despite being prevented from gaining access into the Presidential Villa, the group played an audio clip of the late Hauwa pleading with President Muhammad Buhari, the federal government and the ICRC to come to her aide and help rescue her alongside two other nurses captured by the terrorist on Rann, Borno state.

The new head of the group, Edith Yasin, said: “We knew for 30 days that there was a threat to murder Hauwa, We knew for 30 days. We have come here to demand that justice be done. We had 30 days and yet nothing was done. They carried out their threat without giving her even an extra day.

“Where is the Nigerian government? Why is it that a particular group of people will give out such a threat and we allow it to happen without doing it?”

Speaking directly to security operatives barracading the group, Yasin lamented the failure of the Nigerian government to protect the citizens, saying it is painful that citizens who need all the protection in Nigeria have been failed.
