We hereby invite all patriotic Nigerians to join us as we demand the safe return of abducted girls. To signify our unity of purpose and common grief, all protesters are expected to wear red clothing.
The #BringBackOurGirls team would also like to express profound gratitude to all those who have played a part – big and small – in demanding that the abducted girls from Chibok Local Government be rescued from their captors. We as Nigerians must continue to demand from our government regular communication on the status of work being done to bring back abducted Nigerian girls from Chibok and elsewhere, and that measures be taken to protect our children in vulnerable states in the northeast and elsewhere from future abductions.
The support of and attention to this cause from Nigerians in the diaspora and people from all over the world has been inspiring, and only strengthens our resolve to continue the work until all our daughters and sisters are safely returned home.
