A group tagged WithBuhariWeStand has emerged to counter the activities of the BringBackOurGirls (BBOG).
After the purported Chibok saga, the BBOG organization, led Oby Ezekwesili, mounted pressure on the previous government to free the girls.
The group has continued pressuring the President Muhammadu Buhari led government too.
The new group, led by Idris King, marched to the army headquarters, Abuja, to show its support for the army and FG.
The Cable reports that members displayed placards with various inscriptions.
Some read: ‘BBOG, give some credit to the government and the Nigerian Army’; ‘Oby Ezekwelisi, stop politicizing the rescue of Chibok Girls’.
Others read, ‘No more business”, and “BBOG business is over.’
The leader of the group said “What they (BBOG) came out initially to do was good.
“However, the manner in which they are going about it now is distracting to the government and the army.
“What they are doing is simple and is what I call socio-advocacy terrorism.”
He said his group came to identify with and congratulate the armed forces.

He praised the Army for its successes in the fight against Boko Haram.
“We want to salute the doggedness of the Nigerian armed forces, especially the Nigerian army,” he said.
Major-General Chris Jemitola addressed the group on behalf of the Chief of Army Staff, Lt-General Tukur Buratai.
“It is quite painful that when you are doing so much, some people are out to point out faults,” General Jemitola said.
He noted that security is a collective responsibility, adding that nobody could claim to love Nigeria more than Nigerians.
He thanked the group for identifying with the army and commended them for their orderly conduct.
