A number of activities have been lined-up locally and internationally to mark the 100 days of the abduction of the Chibok pupils today.

In Lagos, there will be a service at the Wall of missing girls at Falomo roundabout at 4pm, a special sit-out ceremony at the Unity Foundation in Abuja and a news conference at the BRECAN Centre around 10am.

There will be a candlelight vigil at the Nigerian Consulate in New York. There will also be a similar event in India, Pakistan, the UK and most world capital cities where there are teachers, organisations in partnership with the UN Special Envoy’s office of Gordon Brown, according to a statement by the #BringBackOurGirls protesters.

The #BringBackOurGirls campaign team  said “as days become weeks and months, the girls were separated from their parents and their community, our singular focus remains on their safe return in the shortest possible time.”
