On Wednesday, 21st May 2014, students from about 25 countries gathered at the Technical University Munich (Germany) to join in the campaign for the kidnapped girls in Nigeria #BringBackOurGirls!
The students, who showed passionate concerns about the unfortunate event said they are making a stand for Freedom and Education-for-all.
It’s been over 5 weeks that over 230 girls (teenagers) were abducted from their school in Chibok, Nigeria by a terrorist group called Boko Haram! They are still missing!
These young girls are still being held captive, their condition is unknown, they are at extreme risk of being sexually abused and trafficked. The leaders of Boko Haram have threatened to sell them as slaves and into child marriages. The pain and agony their parents are going through is worse. About four of the parents have been reported dead since the kidnap!
It is still unclear what hopes are there to find the missing girls and the have them all back in good health. We hope that as people from all over the world continue to speak up for peace and freedom, especially for the ‘stolen’ girls, the Nigerian Government will not relent in deploying more intelligence and forces in finding the girls.
