What About the Girls from Chibok?

August 18, 2014

Four months ago Boko Haram fighters kidnapped more than 200 girls from a school in the village of Chibok, focusing international attention on northern Nigeria’s five year insurgency.

In the meantime the media spotlight has moved elsewhere, but the girls are still missing. DW spoke to an activist in Abuja still campaigning vigorously for their release, Tsambido Hosea-Abana.

DW: What sort of state is the BringBackOurGirls campaign in?

Tsambido Hosea-Abana: The campaign is still there – and is graduating to a higher movement – now they are increasing other activities, distributing flyers and stickers. They have said they will never sit back until these girls are found.
