#BringBackOurGirls Campaign

Nigerian President Goodluck Jonathan admitted that his government still does not know where the 230 schoolgirl who were abducted are being held.


President Jonathan, who has been criticized heavily by Nigerians and those concerned alike, spoke for the first time since the girls disappearance.


"We promise that anywhere the girls are, we will surely get them out," he said in a live TV broadcast.


The President requested full cooperating from the parents of the children.


"It is a trying time for this country... it is painful. What we request is maximum cooperation from the guardians and the parents of these girls. Because up to this time, they have not been able to come clearly, to give the police clear identity of the girls that have yet to return," he said.


Protesters took to the streets over the weekend. On Sunday, about 100 demonstrators gathered outside the Nigerian High Commission in London again, where they chanted "Bring them back!" as well as "Not for sale!" and "African lives matter!"


#BringBackOurGirls Campaign


On April 16, 230 schoolgirls were abducted, allegedly by Boko Haram, in Nigeria. Of the hundreds of girls herded into vehicles, only 43 have escaped. Some of these girls are as young as 12.


Up until recently, there’s been little coverage on the horrific abduction, but thank God for the Internet as #BringBackOurGirls has been launched to bring awareness and to force the Nigerian government to step up.


CNN reported that protesters took to the streets again on Sunday, adding to the international pressure on Nigeria do more to rescue more than 200 schoolgirls abducted by militants.

In a bid to rescue the 234 girls of the Government Secondary School, Chibok Borno State, the first lady, Dame Patience Jonathan has concluded plans to lead a protest march to the state governor, Kashim Shettima.

 is a Twitter campaign to pressure the Nigerian government to do more to find more than 200 teen girls kidnapped by group Boko Haram in Nigeria. 

Parents of the missing are taking it upon themselves to look for their daughters in forests and other places the Nigerian security forces are too afraid to enter because of the terrorists.


I have heard time and time again that there are peaceful Islamists. Can those who are practicing Islam, who don't agree with the abduction of the 230 girls stand up please? 

Christians please pray for this girls and families, and those who are involved here.
