APC Condems Attack On The Bring Back Our Girls Protesters

The All Progressives Congress has condemned the attack on the 'bring back our girls' protesters who have hitherto conducted themselves in a civil and peaceful manner, calling the attack deplorable and orchestrated to shift the focus from 'bring back our girls' to 'release our girls'.

In a statement issued in Lagos by its Interim National Publicity Secretary Lai Mohammed, the party said the attack on the protesters in Abuja has confirmed its worst fears that the federal government was embarking on a campaign to shift the responsibility from the government to the abductors, in line with President Goodluck Jonathan's admonition to the protesters to direct their protests at the abductors rather than to his government.

The party wondered why the government would be pushing its responsibility to ensure the welfare and security of Nigerians to a band of terrorists.
