A group of Nigerian women, under the banner of “Women for Peace and Justice”, have said they would stage a peaceful protest in Abuja, Nigeria’s capital city on Wednesday.
According to Premium Times, the women are staging the protest to demand the release of the remaining 230 Government Girls Secondary School students kidnapped in their hostel in Chibok, Borno State.
It could be recalled that about 273 school girls were reportedly whisked off by members of the Boko Haram on April 14.
It was also reported that forty-three of the girls have been found and reunited with their family after they allegedly escaped their abductors.
Since the rest of the girls are yet to be found, the Women for Peace and Justice, therefore, decided to have a one million protest march on Wednesday.
According to them, it is an attempt to bring the plight of these girls to world.
