Malala: Nigerian Schoolgirls are My Sisters


Global Campaign #BringBackOurGirls Taking Shape

Malala Yousafzai has urged the world to share their concerns over the missing Nigerian schoolgirls.


Speaking to the BBC, she said the world must not stay silent over their abduction. “If we remain silent then this will spread, this will happen more and more and more.”


News emerged this week that the girls were kidnapped more than three weeks ago by the Islamist terrorist group, Boko Haram militants in the northern east state of Borno.


More than 230 girls were kidnapped from different villages across the state of Borno. Anger has been directed towards the Nigerian government as to why it has taken so long for news of the kidnapping to have been reported.


The situation has also over-shadowed the start of the World Economic Forum, taking place in Nigeria.


Malala added, “We are sent to this earth as a community and it is our responsibility to take care of each other. I am happy that Barak Obama and David Cameron have spoken out against Boko Haram’s kidnapping of girls.”
