The Iyaloja-General of Nigeria, Mrs Folashade Tinubu-Ojo has ordered that all Lagos Markets be shut in protest of the adopted girls in Chibok, Borno State.
Tinubu-Ojo, who led the Association of Commodity Market Women and Men of Nigeria, in a protest on Monday, called for the immediate and unconditional release of the over 200 abducted school.
In a press statement, the Iyaloja said as a responsible mother, she could imagine the ordeal and traumatic experience the innocent girls would have been subjected to in the hands of the “lawless bandits and mean gangsters”.
She therefore called on the government and appropriate security agencies not to spare any efforts to track these girls and reunite them with their families as soon as possible.
The Iyaloja-General asked well-meaning Nigerians, pressure groups, NGOs, religious organisations to keep alive issue around the missing schoolgirls until they are rescued.
“Members of the public should be very vigilant about the goings-on in their environment and volunteer information to security agencies at all times,” she added.
