NIGERIA – The abduction of over 200 Nigerian schoolgirls has inspired a social media campaign under the banner #bringourgirlsback

The campaign is aimed at raising awareness about  the missing girls, who have not been seen in weeks. 

The girls were abducted from their school during a night raid by suspected extremists.

They were allegedly rounded up onto large trucks, but some managed to escape en route.
