3 years #BringBackOurGirls: Nigerian stolen girls no where to be found


3 years #BringBackOurGirls: Nigerian stolen girls

Three years after 276 schoolgirls in Chibok, northeast Nigeria, were kidnapped by Boko Haram on 14 April 2014, the Nigerian stolen girls are still no where to be found. The kidnapping sparked the global #BringBackOurGirls campaign that failed on its own promise to bring back the stolen girls.

21 of the stolen girls were released in October 2016 (more than 2.5 years) in a deal brokered by the International Red Cross. More than 63 have escaped from the Boko Haram camp.

On the eve of the third year anniversary, Nigeria's government released a statement that it is in talks to release the remaining captive Chibok girls, the president said on Thursday, April 13, 2017.

The government "is in constant touch through negotiations, through local intelligence to secure the release of the remaining girls and other abducted persons unharmed," President Muhammadu Buhari said in a statement.

Of the girls taken from their school in the northeastern town of Chibok in 2014, 195 are still missing.
