I must say this sincerely, but for the warnings that it may cost us OUR GIRLS for which we would do it, coupled with promises that the military would soon rescue them, we were prepared to take our protest to Chibok, and then to Sambisa.

Many would recall that I announced during our protest in Lagos while calling for rescue of the abducted school girls in Chibok, that "apart from women threatening to go naked, Chibok is not far from us". What I meant was that we were actually prepared to head for Chibok, and then, Sambisa with our protests.

After that protest in Lagos, we were planning to stage next protest in Chibok and Sambisa. But we got warnings that it may provoke incidents that could result in undesirable loss of the captives.

Our interest to have the girls return to their parents, not to be blamed for their loss. So, we took it calmly.
