Boko Haram released a new video on claiming to show the missing Nigerian schoolgirls, alleging they had converted to Islam and would not be released until all militant prisoners were freed. A total of 276 girls were abducted on April 14 from the northeastern town of Chibok, in Borno state, which has a sizeable Christian community. Some 223 are still missing.

YOUNG ACTIVIST WRITES ABOUT CHIBOK GIRLS

A young  Pakistani activist Malala Yousafzai known for Female Education and the youngest-ever Nobel Prize laureate, wrote an open letter to the families of the Boko Haram kidnapped Chibok Girls.

In her letter, she was able to talk about the lives of the missing girls, and how she had been praying for their return back to their parents. Her prayer wishes the President of Nigeria a day he would welcome back the missing citizens again.

In order to appreciate her emotions concerning the Chibok Girls, it would be important to read the content of her words.

The letter reads;
Dear mothers and fathers, I write this letter with a heavy heart, knowing you have endured another year separated from your daughters. I think of

you every day since we first met two years ago — and join millions of people around the world in praying for the safety and swift return of your girls.
As I did last year, I call on President Buhari of Nigeria — and everyone who can help rescue the Chibok girls — to act now. Would a president give up the fight for his own daughter? These girls are just as precious to their families. Parents, thank you for having the courage to send your daughters to school.

My dream is that one day they will come home, finish their education and choose their futures for themselves. I pray for the day when you can embrace your girls again.
Your sister, Malala

Malala is known mainly for human rights advocacy for Education and for women in her native Swat Valley in the Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province of northwest Pakistan, where the local Taliban had at times banned girls from attending school. Yousafzai’s advocacy has since grown into an international movement.

However, it would be saddening to note that the Vice-President of the country said Yesterday that there cannot be a time frame for the return of the 219 Chibok girls that were abducted from their Government school in Borno state of the country as at 14-15 of April 2014.

Today makes it 2 years that the Chibok Girls got missing
