Nigeria: May Day - Labour, CLOs Protest FG Failure to Free Chibok Schoolgirls

The abduction of Government Secondary School, Chibok schoolgirls took the centre stage at the Workers Day Celebration in Borno state as workers in the state and civil liberty organisations with other interests groups staged a peaceful procession in Maiduguri to protest the inability of the Federal Government to rescue abducted schoolgirls two week after.

The protesters, who all wore black apron, were led by the Borno State Chairman of the NLC, Comrade Titus Ali Abana in the march from the NLC secretariat to the Maiduguri Government House where they registered their displeasure that the girls were yet to be rescued.

Comrade Abana said the workers were using the opportunity of the May Day to mourn victims of the insurgency in the state and the abducted girls of Chibok.
