Tuesday made it 680 DAYS since our Chibok girls were abducted!

Today also makes it 2 years since 59 boys of the Federal Government College were killed in their dormitory in Buni Yadi (Yobe State) by Boko Haram. In remembrance, the family members of the slain boys will be joining the BBOG group to hold a special sit-out and a candle light vigil.

You can also carry out an activity in their honour offline or online by using #BuniYadi59.

Join a gathering in your city to stand for our girls:

Abuja – Unity Fountain, Daily, 4:30 – 6pm
Lagos – Falomo Roundabout, Ikoyi, Saturdays, 11am-1pm
Osogbo – Freedom Park, Sundays, 5pm
