The Commissioner of Police, Joseph Mbu, on Monday, June 2, 2014 announced a ban on all protests in Abuja demanding freedom for the Chibok schoolgirls kidnapped by Boko Haram, the News Agency of Nigeria reports.

Since more than 200 girls were kidnapped from Government Secondary School, Chibok, in Borno on April 14, 2014, groups have ran several protests in the Federal Capital Territory (FCT) demanding the Federal Government to “Bring Back Our Girls.”

The announcement of the ban comes days after persons, suspected to be pro-government thugs, attacked a group of women protesters who have been holding daily peaceful protests in the Nigerian capital city.
