On April 14 — in just about 2 weeks from today, it will be exactly 2 full years since schoolgirls of Government Secondary School, Chibok were abducted in their school by terrorists.
In exactly 7 days we shall be commencing a Global Week of Action culminating on 14 April, to mark this unfortunate incidence and to refocus the world’s attention to the fact that 276 schoolgirls were abducted in their school, 57 escaped, 219 remain missing till date, with 17 of their parents losing their lives as a result of the trauma.
We urge persons wherever they may be to carry out activities to commemorate this event. There are activities already lined up in many cities of the world, we encourage everyone to participate and/or organise one, however simple.
