Bring Back Our Girls

Michelle Obama

Currently one of the top trending topics across several social media platforms is the global campaign #bringbackourgirls. The campaign started after 276 schoolgirls were kidnapped from their village of Warabe in northeastern Nigeria, by a group called Boko Haram. The group is against western education and ideology, teachings they claim are taught to these girls at school. Boko Haram’s leader Abubaker Shekau warned that more attacks against schools and more abductions are planned and that the girls would be sold for marriage. As of now the girls have not been rescued, but the Nigerian government along with other governments are investigating the matter and working on negotiations to ensure the girls are released. Let’s continue the #bringbackourgirls campaign and provide our support so that these girls are returned safely and those responsible are brought to justice.
