When you hear April 14, what comes to mind? Many may not remember the sad incident of 276 Chibok girls’ abduction. But there are persons who will never forget this day.

The girls were abducted by Boko Haram insurgents from their secondary school, in Chibok, Borno State, 10 years ago.

The 10 years remembrance programme was put together by the #bringbackourgirls campaign group and the EiE Nigeria.

Unkept Promises 

At the event, one of the rescued girls appealed to government to keep its promises to them.


She said nothing was provided for them by the government. “All they have been doing is paying lip service”.

After a decade of vigorous campaign, about 91 of the Chibok girls are still missing or yet to be rescued from captivity.

Their whereabouts are not known, and it would seem like the government is tired.

The girls, like they have always done, used the occasion of the 10 years remembrance to urge the government to bring back their classmates from captivity.


Some of these girls were abducted as young, innocent Christian children, today, they would probably have become married, mothers, converted to Islam and no longer able to continue their education.

Our Demands 

Yemi Adamolekun at the BBOG 10 years Remembrance, urged the parents of the missing girls not to lose faith.


She also asked that government to release information about donations made to the account created for the welfare of the girls.

Furthermore, she said what will give them joy is to see the girls turned women now, return home from captivity.

However, what is not known is if these girls are still alive?

If they are alive, will they be found or will they be left to forge ahead in life as wives, or captives?

Who will answer these questions?
