This is an event to raise awareness and to continue to put pressure on the Nigerian Government in the rescue of over 270 girls students kidnapped over a month ago. A horrific and barbaric act by boko haram.

In the dead night of April 14 2014 in Chibok town northeast Nigeria a group of Islamist extremist known as book haram went to a boarding school and kidnapped over 270 female students. About 50 of them were able to escape, 3 are being reported dead, while 18 are sick after being beaten by snaked in the dreadful forest of Sambisa. Instead of hearing good result on the return of the young girls, 8 more girls were kidnapped by the same group in a town close to Chibok in early May.
