Alicia Keys And Michelle Obama Awakens #BringBackOurGirls Campaign

Six months after over 200 girls were kidnapped in Chibok by Nigerian terrorist group Bokoharam, fresh calls have been made to draw attention to the situation and put pressure on various government agencies to help release them. The girls were abducted from their school on April 14 in Borno State, Nigeria.

To keep the campaign alive, American singer Alicia Keys led a #BringBackOurGirls rally in New York City. Alicia, in company of other women, took their campaign to the United Nations Headquarters in New York where they called upon the institution to work towards the release of the abducted girls.

According to the 33-year-old American singer who’s also currently pregnant, we cannot ignore what has happened to these girls as it could have happened to any of us. He urged everyone to lend their voice by signing a petition to help shine the light on the cause.

The mother of one wrote, “On my lil guys birthday i stand with the mothers of Chibok!! We can’t ignore 6 months of this tragedy!! What if it was you or me? I want to remind you that in this darkness, your voice matters! #BringBackOurGirlsNOW!! Lets do something about this. I’ve signed this, now you!

American First Lady, Michelle Obama also rejoined the #BringBackOurGirls campaign as she wrote on her Twitter timeline, “We haven’t forgotten about the girls who were abducted in Nigeria, and we’ll keep working to help bring them back #BringBackOurGirls -mo.”

Michelle Obama was among the very first people that made the #BringBackOurGirls campaign go viral in the beginning. Many important people including international celebrities, politicians and the EU joined the campaign after the first lady was photographed holding a paper in support of the campaign and call for the release of the abducted girls.
