Chibok Schoolgirls: Abuja teachers protest, demand compensation for slain teachers’ families.

From daily The Morning Star in Britain today:

NIGERIA: Teachers closed schools across the country yesterday to protest against the government’s failure to rescue the hundreds of schoolgirls abducted by Boko Haram and the killings of scores of teachers by the Islamist extremists.

Families of some of the kidnapped girls and their supporters also marched to the presidential villa in Abuja to carry their complaints to President Goodluck Jonathan.

They were met by police in riot gear and fire engines with watercannon.

  3. NIGERIA: Protesters seeking the return of more than 200 girls kidnapped by Islamist group Boko Haram said today they would challenge a ban on their daily protests in court.

    Nigerian police on Monday banned any more protests in the capital Abuja , claiming they could be hijacked by “dangerous elements.”

    “We hope to obtain an immediate restraint on this unconstitutional, undemocratic and repressive act,” said protester spokesman Rotimi Olawale.
