Active Citizen, Our Daughters, Sisters, and Friends are Still Missing!

“The security and welfare of the people shall be the primary purpose of government.”

Section 14(b)(2), 1999 Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria
(as amended)

Dear Active Citizen,

This Sunday, April 14th, marks 10 years since 276 Chibok schoolgirls were abducted by Boko Haram terrorists. An unconscionable decade of their parents facing this haunting question: "Is my child still alive?"

For 3,650 nights, they have grappled with the injustice of their daughters' stolen freedom and humanity. With 91 young women still unaccounted for, these families' horrific nightmares remain unresolved.

Join us this Sunday if you are in Lagos or Abuja as we commemorate 10 years and demand answers from the Nigerian government on the plight of the remaining girls in captivity.

To register your attendance in Lagos, please visit bit.ly/10YearsTooLong.


Amnesty International spoke with some of the young women who were safely returned and the mothers of those who are still missing.
