Pressure is mounting on Nigerian govt to rescue the kidnapped school girls by the Islamist terrorist group, Boko Haram, 1,000 days ago.
Boko had kidnapped some 200 school girls more than two years ago now in the most infamous attack. Since then only 24 girls have been rescued raising hopes that they are still alive.
For more than two years there was no sign of the girls who were kidnapped by the Islamist fighters from a school in Chibok in northeast Nigeria one night in April 2014, sparking global outrage and a celebrity-backed campaign #bringbackourgirls.
Last weekend marked 1,000 days since the fateful day the girls were kidnapped, Nigeria’s President Muhammadu Buhari said he remained committed to ensuring the abducted schoolgirls are reunited with their families "as soon as practicable".
"We are hopeful that many more will still return," said Buhari, who came to power in 2015 and replaced a government criticized for not doing enough to find the missing girls.
"The tears never dry, the ache is in our hearts," he said in a statement.
The exact number of Chibok girls still in captivity is believed to be 195 but it has been hard to pin down an exact number since the girls went missing.
