#BringBackOurGirls: Former CBN Governor, Lamido Sanusi Shows Support For Missing Chibok Girls (PHOTO)

As demonstrations in support of the missing Chibok school girls are being held around the world, former governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) has joined millions of people in the #BringBackOurGirls campaign.

The bring back our girls campaign which has gone worldwide has been backed by the likes of US First Lady Michelle Obama, Pope Francis, foreign and Nigerian celebrities.
On Monday, 12th May, former Vice President Atiku Abubakar and former governor of Lagos state, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu joined the campaign on social media but they were lambasted as their placards had the naira sign instead of the hashtag (#).
The #BringBackOurGirls campaign which has gained momentum started in order to bring the issue to the
fore and let the world know about it so that something can be done to secure the girls' release.
The abduction of over 200 school girls from Chibok community in Borno has raised a lot of controversies. Some people like Asari Dokubo are of the opinion that no girl is missing and this whole issue is just a scam.
Meanwhile, people have been protesting in South Africa, England, Ireland and Turkey, Washington DC, New York, Lagos, Abuja and many other cities and countries worldwide for the release of the abducted girls.
It's been a month since the girls were kidnapped and their parents who are still in pain were thrown into further grief when Boko Haram released a video on Monday, showing the girls in an undisclosed area reciting a chapter from the Qur'an. Some of the girls in the video have been identified by their parents who are still keeping hope alive.
The leader of the dreaded sect, Abubakar Shekau also asked the government to release its members in custody in exchange for the girls, but the government has said they will not accept Boko Haram's proposal.
As the search for the girls continue, the Nigerian government is working hand in hand with foreign experts to secure the safe release of the girls.
