Nigerian Women Protest in Abuja Over Abducted School Girls (Photos)

Several women defied the heavy rainfall in Abuja yesterday to protest the abduction of over 200 school girls from the Government Girls’ Secondary School in Chibok, Borno State a few weeks ago. The traumatised women, some of whom are the parents of the kidnapped pupils, appealed to the government and the military to ensure the safe release of the girls.

The women, who were led by a former Minister of Education, Oby Ezekwesili, were received by the Senate President, David Mark; the Speaker, House of Representatives, Aminu Tambuwal; the Deputy Speaker House, Emeka Ihedioha , and other lawmakers. They urged the legislators to quickly do something urgently as they could no longer bear the trauma that the young girls were passing through.
