Over 40 Nigerians living in New York on May 6, 2014, gathered outside of the Nigerian Embassy to protest the abduction of hundreds of GGSS Chibok female students in Borno.
The protesters were carrying various placards with such inscriptions as “Nigerian Government, Bring Chibok Girls Home Immediately,” “Govt Officials in Fortresses, Our Girls in the Forest,” “Bomb Blast in Abuja, President Jonathan Dancing in Kano,” “#BringBackOurGirls,” “Setting Committee 3 Weeks After Abduction Is Grand Mediocrity,” “The Whole World Calls for the Rescue of the Chibok Girls” and many more.
Similar rallies took place across Nigeria and in other countries across the world. Three days ago, May 3, similar protest took place in Washington, D.C., the capital of the United States.
In New York, people with placards and banners sang and chanted slogans and voiced their anger through speeches directed at the Nigerian Government and international community.
