In this report, CBN News cameras travel to Nigeria, and speak with relatives and friends of the 219 girls from Chibok, who continue to be held captive by Boko Haram. A year ago next month, fighters kidnapped 276 girls, mostly Christian, from their school in Chibok. Fifty-seven escaped, but 219 are still being held. The girls’ abduction drew global protests and launched the Twitter hash tag campaign #BringBackOurGirls. But as time passes, there is a grave danger of the plight of the girls being forgotten. We at Friends In The West, along with CBN and many other groups and organisations around the world, want to encourage people to continue to pray for the release of these girls.
