On May 5, 2014 in Lagos: Nigerian women took to the streets to impress on government to do more to free more than two hundred school girls who were abducted by Boko Haram militants.

I have been following the #BringOurGirls protests in the news and on the ground, interviewing protesters and rights activists.

I have also been speaking with people, including social workers, familiar with Borno State which remains the hotbed of the Boko Haram insurgency.

In the meantime, after covering two protests in Lagos, I wrote this piece – ‘Bring These Girls Back’: Nigerians Criticize Government’s Handling of Boko Haram Insurgency for RH Reality Check.
