Nigeria commemorates 3 years since the abduction of Chibok girls

ABUJA-Nigerian Bring Back Our Girls campaigners Saturday marked the 3rd anniversary of the abduction of Chibok girls by Boko Haram.

They planted trees and tied ribbons to commemorate the day .

“Today is a thousand and ninety days they have been taken away and they are not yet back. So as long as we see those red ribbons we remember our Chibok girls that are out there, and so whoever is walking by and seeing the red ribbons it’s just to remind them and say to them: look, 195 Chibok girls are waiting for your voices, come lend that voice and ensure that the government does the right thing and bring them back home,” Bring Back Our Girls leader Aisha Yesufu said.

276 schoolgirls were abducted by Boko Haram from Chibok in 2014.

About 20 were released last October and over 150 girls are still in captivity.
