Nigerians have reaffirmed their support for the #bringbackourgirls group, and have also renewed their pledge to stand by the abducted Chibok schoolgirls as the year ends.

The Chibok schoolgirls were kidnapped from their dormitory at Government Girls Secondary School Chibok, Borno state, on April 14 by Boko Haram militants.

It is now 261 days since they were abducted. And an attempted negotiation with Boko Haram for their release turned out to be hoax.

On Wednesday, Twitter was awash with messages of solidarity for the girls and calls for their rescue.

One Twitter user wrote: “My name is Funso Oyelohunnu, a friend of our Chibok girls. On Day 261, I join to reiterate our demand: bring back our girls.”

Another user wrote: “I am Adesanya Abiodun. On this 261st day of the missing of the Chibok girls, I join in demanding #bringbackourgirls now and alive.”

“My name is Dosunmu Hafeez, a friend of the Chibok girls. I am demanding that the federal government please bring back our girls now,” one other Twitter user wrote.

“I am Soji Adelore, on this Day 261 of the abduction our Chibok sisters, I stand gallantly with Oby Ezekwesili to demand #bringbackourgirls,” another wrote.

Jimmy Sogbesan, a Twitter user who described himself as a brother of the Chibok schoolgirls wrote: “I join Oby Ezekwesili in saying #bringbackourgirls now and alive.”

The #bringbackourgirls group led by Obiageli Ezekwesili, former minister of education, has been campaigning for the rescue of the girls for 246 days, vowing not to relent in demanding the rescue of the girls until they are back home.
