10 Years After Chibok Abduction, Leaders No Longer Fighting for Survivors and Remaining Captives

HeadlineApr 12, 2024

In Nigeria, communities are marking 10 years since the mass kidnapping of 276 girls from their school dormitory in Chibok by Boko Haram fighters. Negotiations in 2016 and 2017 led to the release of about 100 of the girls, but Nigerian and international leaders have since ceased campaigning for the release of the remaining captives as mass kidnappings continue to plague the country. Their families and freed survivors are demanding their safe return.

Yagana Yamani: “Those that remain in the bush, they are my friends. They are my friends, so I was praying maybe one day we will still see each other. I was praying that maybe government will help us and try their best so that they will come and see their parents, their parents will see their children, the way we see our own parents.”
