The Nigerian government has been criticised locally and international for its handling of the kidnapped girls.
The Commissioner of Police in Abuja, Joseph Mbu, on Monday announced a ban on all protests, in the Nigerian capital, to demand freedom for the over 250 schoolgirls kidnapped in Chibok Borno State, the News Agency of Nigeria reports.
Mr. Mbu’s announcement comes days after persons, suspected to be pro-government thugs, attacked protesters, largely women, who have been holding daily peaceful protests in Abuja.
The protest, though popular among several Nigerians, has been a source of worry for the Nigerian government, with the Information Minister, Labaran Maku, announcing last Wednesday that the protesters were sponsored by the opposition All Progressives Congress.
Several other top ruling party officials, including the Plateau State governor, have also criticised the daily it-ins.
President Goodluck Jonathan had, in a speech read to the protesters when they tried to march to the Presidential Villa, asked the protesters to direct the anger at the Boko Haram and not at his government.
