#BringBackOurGirls: Day 121…It’s Hard to Believe

The Chibok girls are not back. Preserving safety and security continues to be a battle for the military, and now the nation is experiencing another crisis: Ebola.

Disappointingly, the #BringBackOurGirls (BBOG) campaign remains vigilant as no definitive progress has been made in recovering the girls.

In recent times, the BBOG group has also come under fire and faces safety and security threats, forcing us to periodically change the location of our daily Abuja meetings.

You can check @BBOG_Nigeria’s Twitter updates for Abuja meeting details.


On Day 115, protesters sealed their lips in solidarity (pictured throughout) in order to remind the government to do all they can to rescue the girls.

“We have to show them that we are not enemies of government or anybody but a voice for the Chibok girls. We have to be proactive. We have to do something. We must oil our wheels of being not a nuisance – as they call us – but a very useful nuisance for the system,” said a member at a recent sit-out at Jabi Lake, Abuja.

Many people have joined the BBOG campaign to show that the girls will not be forgotten.#BringBackOurGirls Nigeria


In addition, plays and advocacy sensitization programs have been held in Ibadan to support the return of the Chibok girls and to counteract discrimination.

For our children’s sakes, we cannot give up. Below, you can see how my organization, Enough is Enough Nigeria, continues to push for action for the missing girls of Chibok:
