It's been weeks now, and all we keep hearing is one bad news to another. No positive news on the whereabouts of these girls. You may not be closely related to them, but they could have been any of your relatives or even you and me.
On 15 April 2014, a group of militants attacked the Government Girls Secondary School in Chibok, Borno State, Nigeria. They broke into the school, shooting the guards. A large number of students were taken away in trucks. Houses in Chibok were also burnt down in the incident. The school had been closed for four weeks prior to the attack due to the deteriorating security situation, but the students had been recalled to take a final exam in physics.
Initial reports said 85 students were kidnapped in the attack. Over the 19–20 April weekend, the military released a statement that said more than 100 of 129 kidnapped girls had been freed. However, the statement was retracted, and on 21 April, parents said 234 girls were missing. A number of the students escaped the kidnappers in two groups; estimates for the number of escapees ranged from 30 to 50.
I can't begin to imagine what those girls are going through wherever they are. PLEASE BOKO HARAM free those girls, they were not aware when you decided to terrify the nation for your selfish reasons...they are innocent.
We all are pleading with you since our security agents and people in authority are always "on top of the situation" yet things are going from bad to worse.
Do you have a heart? Please lend your voice in any little way you can. These girls are people's daughters, and sisters. Their families are in anguish.
Let us keep talking until things are gotten right.
