For eighty days now, 219 schoolgirls abducted from Chibok remain captives of the Boko Haram insurgents. At the same time there is growing frustration about the rescue operation.
A clear indication of the unfortunate situation was the revelation by the United States last Friday that it had no idea of the girls’ location, and that it had decreased its surveillance flights in the area.
Speaking further, the UN special envoy said: “Young people throughout the world have dedicated today, Day of the African Child, not only to education, but in solidarity with the 287 school girls kidnapped by Boko Haram. Thousands of people have come together united with one cause: safe schools for every girl and boy.”
