    HAS IT OCCURED TO ANYONE THAT NO GIRLS WERE KIDNAPPED? AND THAT THE 234 NUMBER IS THE INTERNATIONAL CALLING CODE FOR NIGERIA. THAT THIS IS JUST A HUGE HOAX. True BH or some thugs were hired to ransack and burn the school, took a few girls who have all returned or escaped. Some people seized the opportunity to make it seem as if more girls were taken. Why did it take a whole 3 weeks to compile the list of girls? Even if records were destroyed, parents can account for their children or the teacher for their pupils or students know their missing dorm mates or classmates. At the Abuja demonstrations why were some of the so-called mothers of the missing students laughing, smiling or shedding croc tear? 234 girls plus the people that took them would have driven past many villages to get to their hiding place. We are talking about a convoy of about 300 or 400 people, you can’t hide that many people anywhere on land without them being detected. Even intelligent satellite above can find them because of the heat they will generate collectively. This has been the biggest international hoax ever. And the joke is on the international community who are genuinely concerned and willing to help. It is a big shame on us all.

      Wale You are a big idiot. Even the possibility that it is true, is enough for the government to do something, at least try finding them or proving that it is a hoax.

      I am not an idiot bragga. You ought to learn to have an adult conversation or listen to other people’s opinion without resorting to insults; I get your point, the first part of your post was not necessary. If you are really frustrated you should try directing your anger at your government.

      And so what?! Even if it was a hoax, what about the 40 school boy children that died months ago?What about the recent bombings in Abuja? the point is people are dying everyday because of Nigeria’s incompetence- And Nigerians must speak up

    At least they’re not smiling and posing for the cameras like some other campaigns I’ve seen.

      Thank you Dee!! Was so pissed when I saw some photo captions of so called protesters smiling and posing for camera like it was one children’s day fun carnival.

    With all due respect, I honestly feel for these girls and the poor mothers. But we should not protest blindly. Those girls were not kidnapped from a Lagos State public school neither were they brought to Lagos after the kidnap, so what is the concern of the Lagos state government?
    Then let us not forget that Fashola is under the APC and Borno is a PDP state, if he tries to lend a helping hand people would say its because he wants to expose the flaws of the opposition party not that he truly loves those girls.
    How many of us have actually closed our eyes for 5 minutes to say a word of prayer for these young girls not to talk of fasting?
    Person wey dey cry dey see road, through the pain and agony we should still strive to fight through the right means. xx

      And with all due respect please i’d like you to educate people in Germany,Italy,London,US among other countries matching for the campaign to stop since Boko Haram didn’t get there! Mr Scholar with no full understanding!

      Also are you saying the APC should keep mute so that PDP can make an allergy based on APC not acting? Think again!
      Talking about prayers, If you’ve prayed? KK to that just don’t come here acting all spiritual coz i know you ain’t o.O!

    i agree with you. This is a NIGERIAN PROBLEM where parties and all those unnecessary issues do not matter. I honestly believe that everyone has said a prayer, even if all they said is “God have mercy”

    The “Come home girls, we miss you” placard is just silly. Did the girls run away?

    Like play, like play we are inching towards Egypt and other nations with political unrest.

    @bragga, Wale is not an idiot. learn to think with your brain before making insultive remarks. If the girls were really kidnapped, how come there was no testimony or eye witness account from their teachers, cleaners or gateman. How is it that they were kidnapped with 50 new hilux cars and the car managed to break down to the point that 15, now 53 girls ran away without being noticed from such a huge convoy. How smart of them? lol…. How come the security they said that were killed have not been identified by the military as one of their own?
    Why is it that no one has spoken to or been able to hear from the escapees?
    How can you convey 200 people in such a long convoy that no one would notice and then they have been sold at N2000…lol
    BH always comes out to send videos claiming responsibility, have they come out to make demands or threats or claim responsibility?
    What time did they have to pretend to be soldiers and carry the girls and then destroy the school and kill two soldiers guarding the school?
    Where was the principal?
    What about the fact that WAEC says out of 500 children registered, some where moved to different locations and they were mixed not all girls?
    Please Nigerians should not be so gullible or believe the media in everything.
    Use your brain and don’t resort to insults.
    Something is wrong with this story. it is either a hoax or an exaggeration of the worst kind.

      Thank you joor. True these events are horrible and hard to bear, but sometimes “when one is crying, one should also try to see clearly”- Everything the BH is saying in my opinion is propaganda, they have international attention now and they will say anything to keep it focused on them. They probably do not have any girls.

    Aiite,now let’s all act as if perhaps d girls were not really abducted but let it be known to all dat d theme of d protest by all those speaking out goes beyond #bringbackourgirls#. It focuses majorly on d havoc BH has done in dis ‘ant of Africa’ often mistakenly referred to as ‘giant of Africa’..
    We seriously need intervention and thank God we r getting dat already..
    So to all d doubting Thomas’….#bringbackourgirls#!!!#unveil BH’#let’s know their sponsors#!! Shikena…
