Plateau State Governor Slams #BringBackOurGirls Protesters - 'Why Not Go to the Forest where the Girls are?!"

The Plateau State governor, Jonah Jang, on Friday criticized the hundreds of people who took part in the #BringBackOurGirls protest in Abuja on Thursday, led by Oby Ezekwesili and Dino Melaye. The protesters had been protesting daily to demand the government do more to rescue the over 250 girls kidnapped from Chibok.

Mr. Jang, according to PremiumTimes, said the protesters, who planned to march to the Presidential Villa but were stopped, do not mean well for Nigeria. The Plateau governor said.
“How can a group of people just wake up and begin to protest to the Villa; demanding Mr. President to go to the forest and bring back those girls? Why don’t they go to the forest where the girls are,”

Mr. Jang stated this on Friday in his first visit to the blast scene since the Tuesday bomb explosion in Jos that killed over 120 people.

Ajegunle ‘Bird Woman’ Sons Surface, Deny their Mother is a Witch!

Two men – children of the unidentified elderly woman who was almost lynched by a mob in the Ajegunle area of Lagos after being accused of witchcraft – have identified the victim as their mother. And according to them, the octogenarian was not a witch, but a victim of nature and had been missing from home.

The elderly woman was attacked by a mob which accused her of being a black bird that transformed into a human being. The mob also said that while being beaten, the woman had confessed that she was a witch, that she had flown to Ibadan, Oyo State for a meeting but got tired on returning from Lagos and fell from the sky. Fortunately, the woman was rescued by the police and taken to the Area B Command.

Sources at the command have now told PUNCH Metro that two sons of the victim came to the command on Thursday after seeing their mother’s picture in the newspapers. The source said the two men explained that their mother had wandered off some days ago and they had been looking for her. The men, who said they lived in the Iju Ishaga area of the state were said to have been puzzled as to how their mother walked all the way to Ajegunle.

A policeman at the command said:

“This morning (Thursday), two men came to the command claiming that they were the sons of the woman. The men said their mother was not a witch and were very angry with the manner the rumour was spreading. They said they were shocked that youths could attack an old woman in her 80s and they were even asking for justice because the woman sustained bruises on her head.”

Another police source at the command said that the Area commander, ACP Ndubueze Anene, had transferred the woman to the command headquarters in Ikeja for further investigation. He said the sons had also gone to the headquarters to provide evidence that the woman was indeed their mother.

Police Public Relations Officer, Ngozi Braide, told PUNCH Metro that the woman was not a witch and warned residents of the state against jungle justice. When asked if the woman had been released, Braide said:

“Yes she has been released to her son. The family said due to her old age, she was very ill and was brought from Ibadan to Lagos to stay with one of her sons. The woman’s daughter-in-law said she went to buy drugs for her nearby, but by the time she returned home, the woman had left the house.”
