The FCT Police Command says it did not arrest or detain Oby Ezekwesili and some members of the Bring Back Our Girls group (BBOG) as being speculated on some social media platforms. This was made known in a statement signed by the Command spokesperson, DSP Anjuguri Manzah
According to him, they were only brought to the Command to ensure there was no breakdown of law and order as some members of the group reacted violently and broke down security barriers set up by the police to restrict their protest to Unity Fountain.
The members of the group were addressed by the Commissioner of Police FCT, CP Sadiq Abubakar Bello who reiterated the commitment of the Command to protect lives and property and enjoined the Bring Back Our Girls members to go about their lawful businesses.
After the briefing by the Commissioner of Police, the members of the group left the Command.
