A former first lady of the United States of America, USA and presidential aspirant of the Democrats, Hillary Clinton, has expressed her concern over the abducted Chibok girls, saying the victims and their family members will remain unsettled until the girls are returned.
Mrs Clinton expressed support for Nigerians and all those who have been working diligently to secure the safe return of the Chibok girls.

In a letter written to the BringBackOurGirls, BBOG, Clinton thanked Nigerians and all those who have been doing everything possible to rescue the missing girls alive.



The letter came on the occasion of the second anniversary of the kidnap of 219 Chibok school girls, on Thursday.

According to her, the 2nd Chiboks’ anniversary is “a stark reminder of the work we must do to advance equality for women and girls around the world.

“It’s two years since hundreds of schoolgirls were kidnapped in Chibok, Nigeria. They were taken from their dormitory in the dead of night by the terrorist group Boko Haram.

“Until they’re freed, they and their families won’t know peace.


“I stand with the people of Nigeria and all those who have been working diligently to secure the safe return of the Chibok girls and bring an end to Boko Haram’s brutal acts of terror.

“UNICEF report that one in five suicide bombings by Boko Haram has been carried out by a child – mostly girls, some as young as 8. No child should have to endure these atrocities.

“It’s the right thing to do, and it improves security and prosperity for everyone. That starts with freeing the Chibok girls, and stopping the terror of Boko Haram.

“My heart aches for the hundreds of boys and girls who have been kidnapped by Boko Haram over the years. They have suffered sexual violence and forced marriage,” Ms Clinton noted.
