#Bring Back Our Girls campaign reaches Budapest

Another protest against the kidnapped school girls in Chibok, a town in the northern part of Nigeria, was staged in Budapest on Friday May 25. 



The rally which started just in front of the Hungarian Commissioner for Human Rights and ended at the Embassy of the Republic of Nigeria, Budapest, attracted individuals who seem to be concerned about the fate of the “230” school girls abducted in their dormitory on April 16 by Boko Haram.


After a foot-march to their destination, the marchers presented a protest letter which was received by a top official at the embassy. A similar letter was also presented to the Hungarian Commissioner for Human Rights.


Receiving the letter, Ambassador Muhammadu Sani Yunusa said that the Nigerian government is doing its best to see the girls released. Yunusa added that his country has sought the help of the international community to help crush these “heartless Boko Haram” men.



Meanwhile, the Nigerian military has said that it has located where the kidnapped girls are but won't disclose for security reasons. 


Boko Haram, literally translated as Western Education is a sin, has killed hundreds of people mostly in the northern Nigeria and has since vowed it will do more havoc through suicide bombing and kidnapping.   


It has repeatedly targeted places of learning in deadly attacks that have highlighted its fundamental philosophy against education, CNN reported


The spate of kidnappings began in May 2013 when Boko Haram leader Abubakar Shekau announced in a video that this was part of its latest bloody campaign. 


He stated further that he had abducted the girls and had sold them in the market. African News Hungary cannot verify his claim.


Nigerian President Jonathan has been vilified by the opposition and international community for not taking a strong move against the group.

Love the article on Gaddafi
We must rise above tribalism & divide & rule of the colonialist who stole & looted our treasure & planted their puppets to lord it over us..they alone can decide on whosoever is performing & the one that is corrupt..but the most corrupt nations are the western countries that plunder the resources of other nations & make them poorer & aid the rulers to steal & keep such ill gotten wealth in their country..yemen,syria etc have killed more than gadhafi but its not A̷̷̴ good investment for the west(this is laughable)because oil is not in these countries..when obasanjo annihilated the odi people in rivers state, they looked away because its in their favour & interest..one day!

Hello from
Johannesburg
I was amazed to find a website for Africans in Hungary.
Looks like you have quite a community there. Here in SA we have some three million Zimbabweans living in exile and not much sign of going home ... but in Hungary??? Hope to meet you on one of my trips to Europe; was in Steirmark Austria near the Hungarian border earlier this month. Every good wish for 2011. Geoff in Jo'burg

I'm impressed by
ANH work but...
Interesting interview...
I think from what have been said, the Nigerian embassy here seem to be more concern about its nationals than we are for ourselves. Our complete disregard for the laws of Hungary isn't going to help Nigeria's image or going to promote what the Embassy is trying to showcase. So if the journalists could zoom-in more focus on Nigerians living, working and studying here in Hungary than scrutinizing the embassy and its every move, i think it would be of tremendous help to the embassy serving its nationals better and create more awareness about where we live . Taking the issues of illicit drugs and forged documents as typical examples.. there are so many cases of Nigerians been involved. But i am yet to read of it in e.news. So i think if only you and your journalists could write more about it and follow up on the stories i think it will make our nationals more aware of what to expect. I wouldn't say i am not impressed with your work but you need to be more of a two way street rather than a one way street . Keep up the good work... Sylvia
