WRITE A MESSAGE OF SUPPORT AND HOPE TO FAMILIES AND VICTIMS BELOW:- On April 15, 276 girls were abducted from a boarding school in the city of Chibok in Borno state, Nigeria.  Along with 43 male students who were, not long ago, kidnapped from neighbouring Yobe state by a terrorist group called Boko Haram (meaning ‘Western educations is sinful/forbidden). As Boko Haram has grown bolder in their attacks on students and other civilians, the Nigerian government and military have been unable to stop them. Leader of the group, Abubakar Shekau, has taken responsibility for the group kidnappings, saying in a recently released video; “I abducted your girls. I will sell them in the market, by Allah”. As fear continues to grow for the safety of the missing girls, rumours abound that, if alive, they may be sold as brides for as little as $12. Internationally, outrage and widespread condemnation has spanned across the globe and prompted political figures like Michelle Obama, Angelina Jolie, Ellen DeGeneres, Alicia Keys, P. Diddy, Cara Delvigne, Anne Hathaway, Ashton Kutcher, Justin Timberlake, Bradley Cooper and many other high-profile personalities, not to mention the public en masse, to speak out about these atrocities in a united attempt to help raise awareness and return the girls safely to their families. Locally, Nigerian women have been protesting in vast numbers against the government’s slow-to-respond efforts to find the missing girls, but this has been met by little response from the Nigerian government. Naomi Mutah, the informal leader of the BringBackOurGirls movement, was jailed after a meeting with Nigeria’s first lady for reasons that aren’t exactly clear, which has only further agitated the situation. The Nigerian government is known to be very, and do very little to tackle poverty and high unemplayment problem in Nigeria.  The Nigerian government is known to be corrupt, and do very little to tackle poverty and high unemplayment problems in Nigeria. PLEASE WRITE A MESSAGE OF HOPE BELOW. CONTACT THE MEDIA OR YOUR GOV'T REPRESENTATIVES ON THIS MISSING GIRLS.
