A former Minister of Education, Obiageli Ezekwesili, was this morning arrested by security agents at the Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport, Abuja, as she tried to travel to London for a scheduled engagement.
Mrs. Ezekwesili tweeted Monday morning that she was heading to London to appear on the BBC Hardtalk programme but was prevented from boarding her flight by security operatives.
The operatives confiscated her travelling documents, she said.
The former minister is one of the leaders of the #BringBackOurGirls campaign group, which has been consistently pressurising the Nigerian government to act more decisively in rescuing the over 250 schoolgirls abducted from their dormitory by the extremist Boko Haram sect over three months ago.
