The women are seen ‘brickwalled’ by police officers on duty.

News Express reports that the BBOG group has made repeated attempts to march to the Presidential Villa but was always turned back by security operatives.

The group has accused President Muhammadu Buhari of not working hard enough to free the over 200 school girls from Chibok community in Borno State kidnapped in April 2014 by Boko Haram terrorists after using his promise to swiftly release the girls as one of his gimmicks to win the march 28, 2015 presidential ballot.
