As part of the programme for the day, the group took out time to appreciate the military and other security agencies that had been fighting the insurgency and participating in the push for the rescue of the abducted girls.
The BBOG Group called on the federal government to ensure that the security personnel were adequately equipped for the task of fighting insurgency by also ensuring that the relevant government parastatal buries and honours fallen officers in the campaign accordingly.
