    I was there….glad that these girls are getting the awareness that their situation deserves. Let’s keep up the momentum but not lose focus. It is about time our girls come home!!! Btw, BN I believe this is the 4th protest that has been held in front of the embassy till date.

    I love the sign saying Boko Halal, Terror Haram.

    As I said yesterday how dare Boko Haram do this in the name of ANY religion. Animals.

    Our leader and our Government is ineffective so let us keep shouting, retweeting and protesting until they are shamed into action. Shamed into protecting their own girls.

    Femi Otedola really brought up his children well, his last daughter is the one holding up the red sign. Nice to see wealthy kids being interested in their fellow country girls.
    I hope the girls are brought back soon. Enough is enough.

    Okay, so what is the point of these protests when the international community is already helping out? In my opinion, a lot of Nigerians, especially our so-called celebrities and leaders are just hypocrites! Right after these girls were kidnapped everyone went about their own business until the international community got involved. Our people and their follow-follow way of life, always jumping on the bandwagon, never the ones to initiate change.

      You guys should stop spreading the wrong information. The first person to start the bring back our girls hashtag was a Nigerian. The first protests were held in Nigeria before they carried steam internationally. Thanks to Nigerians spreading the hashtag, the international world familiarized themselves with what is taking place in Nigeria. It is the international world that is doing the follow follow, not the other way around. Stop this second class citizen mindset.

    Hian, why is that lady crying more than the bereaved. After the girls are brought back, boko haram still operated. I think the protest should rather focus on putting BH to extinction. Only then will our girls be safe.

    What we need is a stop Bolo Haram Campaigne! Not just ‘Bring back the girls. Shall we rest when the girls are found?

    Kudos to the organizers, please we will not let our govt. rest. The UK media was at the protest, and its making the news. So the world will continue to be aware. Please let us not forget those girls out there!
