- The abduction of more than 200 school girls in Nigeria last week is trending in the country today. Thousands have been tweeting the hashtags #BringBackOurGirls and #WhereAreOurDaughters in an effort to exert pressure on the authorities to rescue the girls, who were taken by suspected Boko Haram militants. Some of the girls escaped. Nigerians want answers about the whereabouts of the remainder. They’ve also used Twitter to urge the government and the army to take more action. “#BringBackOurGirls to restore confidence,” tweeted @Kayodeojutaiye, an economist based in Abuja. “The capability of our government to protect us will be in doubt if they don’t”.
