Actress Nadia Buari Joins #BringBackOurGirls Campaign
Ghanaian actress Nadia Buari has joined the #BringBackOurGirls social media campaign to bring home the 276 girls kidnapped in Nigeria by Islamic militants.
She has expressed her disappointment in the inability of the Nigerian authorities to solve the disturbing situation, prompting her to join the protest.
Nadia Buari joins scores of inspirational and powerful females such as Malala Yousafzai, Hillary Clinton, Mary J Blige, Amy Poehler and others who have lent their support to the online campaign urging military to rescue the girls.
On April 14th this year, 276 girls were kidnapped from their school in Chibok, north-east Nigeria by Islamic militants, Boko Haram. The school had been reopened for students to take their final exams.
Boko Haram leader, Abubakar Shekau has said in a video, he would sell the captives as slaves for £7. He declares: ‘I abducted your girls. I will sell them in the market, by Allah.’
The Nigerian Police Service is offering £300,000 reward for help locating the children. President Goodluck Jonathan has said security forces are doing all they can to find the girls.
