#Bring Back Our Girls campaign reaches Budapest
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.
