#BringBackOurGirls: Malala marks 17th birthday in Nigeria, tasks FG

malala3Miss Malala Yousafzai, the Pakistani girl who was almost killed by the Taliban in her country’s Swat Valley District for her girl education campaigns, yesterday, in Abuja, tasked the Federal Government to expedite action towards the rescue of the abducted Chibok girls.

She met the BringBackOurGirls campaigners and five of the girls who had earlier escaped from their captors in the Sambisa forest in Borno State. Malala also spoke with their parents.

The five Chibok girls, however, kept mum and refused to share their experiences.

Journalists who swarmed the Unity Fountain, Abuja, yesterday, to hear their tales of woe were disappointed as the girls chose to keep mum. Of the five girls who were brought to Abuja, only one attempted to answer journalists’ question but she shut her mouth almost immediately as they appeared to have been warned by their parents and others not to speak to the media.

Malala who marked her 17th birthday yesterday which coincided with the 90th day of the Chibok girls abduction told the government that the girls were the future of the nation and must not only be rescued but protected in their schools.
