Video - Nigerian activists demand action from government
Protesters from the Bring Back Our Girls campaign are increasing pressure on the Nigerian government to rescue the girls. Campaigners in Abuja have marched to the Presidential villa in the capital. They're demanding the government do more, accusing authorities of being lax in their efforts to rescue the girls from Boko Haram. More than two hundred young women were kidnapped from their school in Chibok more than two years ago. Earlier this month, Boko Haram released a video supposedly showing some of the girls. Some protesters say the government should have at least issued a statement in response to the video.
