Parents of Missing Dapchi Schoolgirls Demand Nigerian Govt Action

Some parents of the Dapchi schoolgirls allegedly taken by terrorist group Boko Haram, marched to the National Assembly in Abuja calling for the government to rescue their children. The parents who wore black shirts emblazoned with the words "We are Dapchi People", said that they had not come to criticise and attack the government but that they needed help. Meanwhile, First Lady Aisha Buhari launched a campaign against Boko Haram militants called "Leave Our Daughters Alone".
