100 Days of Chibok Girls Abduction: Myth, Realities, Challenges, Expectations

Today makes it exactly 100 days since over 200 school girls were kidnapped from their secondary school in Chibok, Borno State Nigeria.

It’s been a highly controversial issue that has not only gained massive popularity and media attention across the country, but also internationally. Local as well as international celebrities and human rights activists have joined the critically acclaimed #BringBackOurGirls Hashtag movement.

What with the recent visit of the Child Activist, Malala to Nigeria about this issue and the seeming publicity downturn the issue is facing, I wonder if there is still any hopes of these girls returning.

At the risk of sounding pessimistic, I cant help but keep asking:

How where they ALL abducted? (You need adequate transport to carry over 200 girls)

Who is feeding them? (It takes a huge budget to feed over 200 girls at least 2 decent meals for the past 100 days!)

What is happening to them right now? (Are they still alive? Are they being raped, killed, converted, etc?)

Where are they? (Reports keep saying they are here, they are there. Sadly, it was reported recently in the media that America denied knowing the whereabouts of the girls)

When are they coming back home? (This must be the question on the minds of the desperate parents, family members and every concerned Nigerian)

All we want is that they be brought back alive!

Enough of this madness!!!
