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 However, the statement was retracted, and on 21 April, parents said 234 girls were missing.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.


  1. Boko Haram can’t hear you, but we all know that, and we get what you’re saying. It’s the same plea as mine and most around the world. Even if they heard they would not listen because they have been robbed of their hearts by religious fundamentalism (if, in fact, they really believe that ‘western influence’ is a sin punishable by death). So, they have become yet another cancerous growth in earth’s body. But I hear you, and God hears you. I don’t know what I can do, personally, to help return these young women to their families, other than attempting (like you do) to bring awareness to situations like the private horrors that women are subject to throughout the world.

    I’ve decided I must devote my blog entirely (temporarily) to the return of these precious human beings and to a call to sanctity. I call for all of us to stay in touch on this one specifically. Each of us has talents both obvious and not so much so, at least to oneself. I offer my heart by inviting anyone to read some of my stuff and to comment as to my gist on things (my style and technique are rather oblique, to attract your attention and get you to speak) and offer suggestion as to how I may best serve.

    Religion and misogyny are deeply intertwined throughout the history of human existence. If we can come together and address that riddle, we are well on our way to a better world.

    1. They'll surely hear if we keep talking in any little way we can. Just as you have decided to use your blog temporarily for this cause...let every other use any means available to them and give Boko Haram a "shout out" to free those girls unharmed.
