However, like on Monday the group was stopped by anti-riot policemen from accessing the presidential villa.
Speaking outside the Villa, Aisha Yesufu, a leader of the group branded President Muhammadu Buhari a “failure” for his inability to rescue the abducted Chibok girls.
 While another Leader of the group Oby Ezekwesili queried the government inability to rescue the girls.
She said the government does not have any excuse and demanded that the presidency brief the group on its plans to rescue the girls.
“For 846 days, our Chibok girls have been captured and you say you don’t have credible intelligence as president of Nigeria?”, she queried.
“Nigeria voted you in to serve their purpose, Mr President we are disappointed. Leadership is about making tough decisions and as president we can’t wait forever or for credible intelligence. How many times would he say no credible intelligence.”
“Today, day 864 since the abduction of our girls, time has completely run out. It is time to take decisive action and bring them home. No more delays.”
In April 2014, Boko Haram abducted 276 girls from a school in Chibok, Borno state.
Till date the girls are yet to be found.
Last week, following a release of a new video by Boko Haram showing the girls, the group has declared its intention to meet with president Buhari.
In the video released by Boko Haram, the terrorist group showed what it described as a Nigerian military aircraft dropping bombs on their hideouts and killing some of the Chibok girls.
The sect also said for the over two years the girls had been with them, about forty of them were married.
Some girls wearing headscarves, in the video, were seen behind a Boko Haram militant who demanded the release of fighters in return for freeing the girls.
The terrorists are demanding the release of their members in the custody of security agents in exchange for the girls.
