The Federal Government has invited the BringBackOurGirls (BBOG) group for day and search sorties for missing Chibok girls to Sambisa Forest.

The trip will enable the campaigners to have first-hand information on the efforts being made by the Nigerian military to rescue the girls.

The trip is scheduled for Monday 16th, January 2017.

The invitation for the trip was contained in a letter from the office of the minister of information Lai Muhammed addressed to the Convener of BBOG, Dr. (Mrs.) Oby Ezekwesili, against the backdrop of continued protest by the campaigners for the rescue of Chibok girls.

The letter asked the BBOG campaigners to nominate two representatives who will join some journalists and others for a trip to Sambisa Forest next week.

But the BBOG was yet to officially respond to the government’s offer as at press time. The trip according to the invitation will include the minister of defence and information as well as the chief of air staff.
