A former Minister of Education and convener of the BringBackOurGirls group, Oby Ezekwesili, has been arrested and detained by the police in Abuja.

Her arrest is believed to be connected to the activities of the group.

In a series of posts on her Twitter handle, @obyezeks, Ezekwesili, said she was arrested alongside some members of the BBOG group.

She said Aisha Yesufu, Maureen Kabrik, Jeff Okoroafor and four others were also arrested.

She twitted, “@MBuhari instructed the IG of @PoliceNG to DETAIN ME AND OTHER MEMBERS of @BBOG_Nigeria here at the Unity Fountain. Police men and women have BUILT AN IMPREGNABLE WALL and LOCKED ME IN. I have asked them more than 30 times to LET ME OUT and they REFUSED.”

Reacting to the reported arrest, The Socio-Economic Rights and Accountability Project, in a statement via its Twitter page, demanded the immediate release of those arrested.

SERAP also tweeted, “The reported false imprisonment & detention of @obyezeks & members of @BBOG_Nigeria makes a mockery of @MBuhari’s claim that this govt is one of change that is governed by d rule of law. The authorities should immediately release them & allow them to freely exercise their rights.”
