It has been six months since Boko Haram abducted the over 200 Chibok schoolgirls from the Government Girls’ Secondary School in Borno.

#BringBackOurGirls protesters today marched to the Presidential Villa in Abuja, to “convey the urgency of the girls’ rescue and to hear directly from the president on the status of the rescue efforts by security agencies,’’ NAN reports.

Here are photos from the protest:

    I’m absolutely all for this! The people are frustrated and rightfully so! It was pretty much a month before the president formally even addressed the issue. Now 6 months later crickets, with the Ebola outbreak and elections on their mind, crickets. These little ones and their devastated families have been forgotten, the trending movement now a passé . So yeah, Mr. president better wake up in his comfortable abode … :0( #bringbackourgirlsnow! #humanrightsisaright #activist&revolutionist

    I’m happy that this news is still on the top of people’s mind. I hope the president actually starts looking for these girls

    Is that where GEJ stays?/aso rock? This is a sincere question. If it is, this is the first time I am seeing pictures and I thought people were not allowed to get that close?

    I am glad people are still protesting!

    Amen!

    All this 2015 focus in the face of the girls still missing is absolutely ridiculous! In a civilised world, a President or his spokesmen should address the nation regularly on the issue…oh but no…Oga Abati and Daddy Okupe are busy telling us how fantastic he is and how he brought cheaper cars into the country.
    Nonsense upon nonsense!!!
