Five Years Since Mass Abduction of Nigeria's Chibok Girls

President Muhammadu Buhari has pledged that his government would not rest until the remaining Chibok girls kidnapped by Boko Haram terrorists in April 2014 are safely reunited with their families. The abduction of the 276 girls by Boko Haram sparked a global outcry. The girls were sleeping at their school, awaiting exams, when they were taken. Although dozens have been released and 57 managed to escape, there are at least 100 girls still being held captive by the militants.
