   The Bring back our girls campaign is really gaining support, as different international celebrities and notable figures lend their voices, mainly through social media.
We are all crying and demanding that these young, vulnerable girls be brought back and really appreciate their support.
  You can also join the #BringBackOurGirls campaign on Twitter , Facebook and Instagram using the hashtag.

     Celebrities around the world have voiced their outrage over the abduction of 276 schoolgirls in Nigeria last month, flooding social media with posts using the hashtag: #BringBackOurGirls.
Michelle Obama, Malala Yousafzai, Hilary Clinton, Angelina Jolie, Justin Timberlake, Chris Brown are among those lending their support to the social media
campaign, which encourages military intervention to recover the girls who were kidnapped from their school by Boko Haram rebels in north-east Nigeria.

   Nigerians really appreciate the solidarity and support shown by the international community to the situation. These girls need to be brought back home to their worry-stricken parents and relatives. They’ve been gone for almost three weeks now, and so much could have happened in that period. We cant keep silent! We call on the Nigerian Government and international community to do everything possible to #BringBackOurGirls
