Angry Nigerians and Rest of the World Cry Out to Jonathan #BringBackOurGirls!

share on:

After almost three weeks, President Goodluck Jonathan finally spoke out last night to address the issue of the 234 missing secondary school girls. He assured Nigerians that they would be found but made claims that the families of the girls were not co-operating with the authorities in the search for the girls.

That statement produced an angry reaction from Nigerians on social media, many of them, taking to Twitter to air their minds on the matter. According to them, the president is doing nothing to change the situation on ground.

To worsen matters, reports arose, allegedly claiming that Naomi Nyadar, the woman leading protests over the abduction of the girls Nigeria was detained on the orders of the First Lady, Dame Patience Jonathan.

According to BBC, it was reported that Mrs Jonathan felt slighted that the mothers of the abducted girls had sent Mrs Nyadar to the meeting.

Following the arrest of Mrs Nyadar, Nigerians vented their rage on Twitter and have since then been throwing angry tweets directed to the president and his wife, while tweeting at the hashtag, #BringBackOurGirls.
