Is it acceptable? #112ChibokGirls in Boko Haram captivity for 1766 days?

Is it acceptable that #112ChibokGirls 

have been

in Boko Haram captivity for 1766 days?

That #LeahSharibu has been held captive

for 359 days?

That #AliceNgaddah has been

a Boko Haram captive for 349 days?

That thousands of other Nigerians

are also held captive?

Keep demanding their rescue & reunification


their families.

Unbelievable that nothing has changed

for #112ChibokGirls almost 5 years on,


more Nigerians were taken captive

both before their abduction and after.

They must be rescued and reunited

with their families.

Thereafter, they and their families must be given

long term, culturally appropriate

psychosocial support

so they can resume a semblance of

normalcy in their lives.
