More than 60 young girls and women have escaped their suspected captors in Northeast Nigeria and have arrived home safely. However, Nigerians are still on the lookout for the remaining missing girls–approximately 200. The escape was confirmed on Sunday by a highly-ranked security source that chooses to remain anonymous, according to MSN.
Some officials from Borno, where the girls were kidnapped, have worked with journalists to keep us informed of what is going on. Gava, one of the officials, said that these women took the courageous risk to escape while their captors were out fighting.
It has been 83 days since the girls were abducted on April 14, 2014. #BringBackOurGirls has been the cry of many on social media for many of those days. It may be time to launch #BringBacktheRestofOurGirls. However the campaign goes, let us remain vigilant in our prayers and committed to showing concern for the girls and their family until they are all safely returned to their homes.
