Parents and various organisations are calling on the government to facilitate to facilitate the release of the Chibok girls who have been in captivity of the Boko Haram fighters for so many years.
On April 14th, five years ago, Boko Haram fighters invaded Chibok town in Borno state, and abducted two hundred and seventy six schoolgirls.
Some of them have been released but one hundred and twelve of these girls are still in Boko Haram captivity.
In the first frantic minutes of their ordeal, fifty seven girls managed to escape, the remaining two hundred and nineteen were taken away by the fighters.
Five years since the tragic incident, one hunded and seven of the girls have been rescued by the Nigerian military, or freed in negotiations between the government and the armed group, but more than one hundred and twelve girls are still missing.
Parents and residents of Chibok continue to await their return.
Life has also not been the same for the community, which attracted international attention.
Various organisations and celebrities joined their voices in calling for the release of the girls.
Boko Haram has waged an armed campaign in northeastern Nigeria since 2009 aimed at creating an Islamic state.
And according to a 2018 Amnesty International report, at least 4,000 girls, boys and women have been abducted by Boko Haram.
