THE Bring back Our Girls campaign movement is set to commemorate the 2000 days of the disastrous kidnapping of 276 schoolgirls of Government Girls Secondary School on the 14th of April 2014 by Islamic Extremist Group, Boko Haram in Chibok town.

In a release by the spokesperson of the movement, Nifemi Onifade, he noted that some of the 276 school girls have been rescued, some escaped but towards the commemoration of the 2000 days of the kidnapping, 112 schoolgirls are still unaccounted for.

“The BringBackOurGirls movement will commemorate this ongoing tragedy by keeping hope for the return of our Chibokgirls alive,” he added.

Bring Back Our Girls movement is set to organise an activity on Saturday 5, October to commemorate 2000 days of unaccounted 112 schoolgirls of Chibok.

Nifemi said that the movement would continue to uphold her promise to the Chibokgirls by demanding their immediate and unconditional return from the Federal Government of Nigeria.

He also thanked people who have continued to stand by the movement and their unwavering support for the Chibokgirls during the Bringbackourgirls struggle.

Nigerians continue to witness several abduction cases in the Northeastern part of the country, it should also be noted that the Boko Haram group, also kidnapped more than 100 schoolgirls in Dapchi, North-East Nigeria, although most of them have been recovered by the Nigerian government.

However, many Nigerians have criticized the government’s inability to recover the remaining 112 schoolgirls of Chibok, Leah Sharibu among others.

The former Minister of Education, Oby Ezekwesili also criticized the Federal Government in a tweet on her official page, she quoted Buhari of saying that the FG would not claim to have defeated Boko Haram without rescuing the Chibokgirls and all other innocent persons held hostage by insurgents and that the government went ahead to do so.

Renowned government critic and Special Assistant to Former President Goodluck Jonathan, Reno Omokri statement said, ”President Muhammadu Buhari, you should do everything in your power not to score political points, keep her and when it’s time for elections let her go”.
