Local Nigerians are doing their part to bring awareness to the situation in their country.
A few members of the Nigeria United organization held signs in front of the Capitol Saturday afternoon, urging the Nigerian government to "bring back our girls." Nearly 300 girls are still missing after Islamist terrorist group Boko Haram kidnapped them from their Chibok school back in April. Nigerian officials say they have located the girls, but won't say where and fear that a rescue attempt could end in them being killed.
"We want those girls back to their parents, that's why we are here, under the sun, under the rain today in Lincoln, Nebraska," Ledogo Edo of Lincoln said.
Edo thinks the Nigerian government needs to solve the poverty and unemployment issues in her country so that abductions stop happening.
