• Protests mark six months since Nigerian schoolgirls’ kidnap


    ABUJA: Protesters calling for the release of 219 Nigerian schoolgirls kidnapped by Boko Haram militants were set on Tuesday (Wednesday in Manila) to mark the six-month anniversary of their abduction with a march on the presidency. Members of the Bring Back Our Girls campaign were planning to walk to President Goodluck Jonathan’s official residence in Abuja to keep up the pressure on the government to bring the missing teenagers home. The march is the culmination of a series of events in the past week, including a candlelit vigil, to keep the fate of the girls in the public eye, as media coverage and on-line interest wanes.
