A story has gone viral after the last few days about 234 Nigerian girls who were kidnapped On April 16, in the middle of the night in northeast Nigeria.

The group accused of doing the kidnapping is called Boko Haram. The Islamic group has claimed responsibility for several terroristic type acts that have happened in the country. Their most heinous act went unknown to the world for weeks.


Dozens of armed men who answered to the name Boko Haram captured 234 girls sleeping in dormitories at Chibok school and disappeared in the dark. In the two weeks since, there has been no sign of the girls.
