#560DaysOn: Chibok Girls – Crying To Be Rescued, Never To Be Forgotten

“I am positive that Nigeria will win and see the end of these terror strikes.”
– Oby Ezekwesili

It’s now 564 days!

On Wednesday, the Nigerian troops at the fringes of Sambisa forest rescued about 338 people (8 men, 138 women and 192 children) from Boko Haram insurgents. It’s however not clear if any of the rescued hostages were part of the Chibok girls.

The BringBackOurGirls group has called on Nigerians to rally behind the military and security agencies in the fight against insurgency, so that the fight can be won.

We look forward to the freedom of our girls!! Join a gathering in your city to stand for our girls:
