The hashtag #BringBackOurGirls never went away but its finally being acted upon.
Today 21 Chibok schoolgirls that were kidnapped more than two years away have finally been freed.
Their release is the result of a series of negotiations that is going on between the Nigerian government and Boko Haram, which is a militant Islamic group.
According to a report by CNN, Boko Haram means” western education is forbidden.” In April of 2014, the Boko Haram miliants took 276 girls out of their beds in the middle of the night from a Chibok school. Some of the girls escaped, but dozens more are still missing. The 21 freed girls are considered the largest group to be freed since the kidnapping. They’re now in the care of Nigeria’s Department of State Services.
Let’s pray for the safe return of the rest of the girls. #BringBackOurGirls
