2 years gone: How the world united for the abducted Chibok girls (VIDEO)

When 276 girls were kidnapped by Boko Haram from Government Secondary School in Chibok, Borno state, the nation was rife with outrage.

Fortunately, 57 of the 276 escaped from the terrorists that same day.

Some Nigerians were angry at the audacity of such horrendous action while some were incensed by the seeming negligent response of the government to the nightmare.

Following the abduction, little or no military effort seemed to be in place to effect the rescue of the girls, which further enraged some well meaning nationals who kick-started a campaign tagged #BringBackOurGirls, in a bid to galvanize the government into action.

The campaign staged protests in Abuja, the capital city of Nigeria, Lagos and other cities across the country demanding for swift action from the government to rescue the kidnapped girls.

The missing girls might not have been found but the campaign did share with the world the tragic plight of the kidnapped innocent girls.

The tag garnered a lot of interest from different corners of the world with notable world leaders, stakeholders and different nationalities demanding for one thing- to Bring Back Our Girls.

2 years after the world outrage and the hashtag, the Chibok girls have still not been found and rescued yet but hope springs eternal.
