Seven years after hundreds of schoolgirls were abducted by Boko Haram jihadists in Chibok, northeast Nigeria, more than 100 are still missing.

On April 14, 2014, Boko Haram gunmen seized 276 girls aged between 12 and 17 from the Government Girls Secondary School in the remote town of Chibok in Borno state.
Although most escaped or were later released, more than 100 girls remain in captivity!
There have been at least five mass abductions of school children in northern Nigeria since December, and the threat of further attacks has led to the closure of about 600 schools in the region, the rights groups added.
Whatever authorities are doing to tame this tide, it is not working! Following school shutdowns, many girls have been married off.
The UN Children’s Fund (UNICEF) estimates that about 10.5 million children between the ages of five and 14 are out of school in Nigeria.
