276 Nigerian girls are missing. On this episode, we discuss why it is everyone's responsibility to locate them. We honor the bravery of the 50 who escaped. We call for a boycott of Saturday Night Live for making jokes about this horrible act. This is no laughing matter. #bringbackourgirls
The Role of ethnicity and religion in Nigerian Politics:
Making Sense of it all (What does it all mean?): The news of the Government College Chibok students (GCC) abduction came just less than 24 hours after Nigerians were trying to recover from the bomb blast perpetrated by Boko Haram at Nyanya park in the outskirts of the Federal Capital, Abuja, which claimed at least 80 lives, with over 120 injured. Why? Why? Why? Why should life be meaningful? This could very well be one of the questions in the minds of the girls from the Government Secondary school in Chibok as they were being taken away by Boko haram on that faithful night April 14, 2014. I thought it was the end of my life,” says Deborah Sanya, before she convinced herself and 3 of her friends to escape...

HISTORY OF BOKO HARAM
HOW TO DEAL WITH BOKO HARAM AND OTHER JIHADIST INCUBATOR
Here are some outstanding questions and thoughts to be discussed during the program:
Why has Boko Haram attacked Chibok and abducted the girls?
How is Boko Haram funded?
To what extent is the government to blame in Boko Haram’s development?
Is a similar pattern of abductions being recognized in the Northern Uganda crisis with Joseph Koni, and Charles Tailor of Liberia and Sierra Leone?
Nigerian government’s lack of well-established emergency measures against terrorism is a permanent weakness that can be exploited at will?
The abduction of 300 plus girls from their school dormitories in the middle of the night by the Islamist group Boko Haram three weeks ago has raised a world wide uproar and demands for their unconditional return are stronger than ever. The abductors whose name means; “western education is sin” have indicated that the girls will be sold. ZBTR team will discuss this phenomenon of Western Education, the purported leader of the Islamist group surfaced in a video message clad in modern military fatigue, an automatic weapon around his shoulder and standing in front of what appeared to be an armored combat vehicle. Do the Islamist group recognize that everything about them and their weapons are all modern or western inventions? Join us as we put our voice to the world wide cry: #Bringbackourgirls!!!!
On the 5th of May 2014, people came out to Nigeria House in London to protest against the lack of action by the Nigerian Government in relation to finding the abducted Chibok school girls.
All came for different reason......but they came. Hear their reasons why....
It's been nearly three weeks since men dressed as soldiers kidnapped more than 300 girls from a Nigerian boarding school, an attack that has critics decrying the lack of action from a military that may not have the capability to mount an effective rescue operation.
“It’s really hard to say what will happen,"said Brandon Kendhammer, assistant professor of political science at Ohio University, who focuses on religion and politics in northern Nigeria . "The Nigerian military doesn’t have a particularly strong track record in being able to free hostages.”
Although they haven’t claimed responsibility, nearly all have pinned the kidnappings on the Islamic extremist group Boko Haram, which had threatened to take young women captive almost a year ago.
Nigerians have expressed their outrage that the girls have not been found, accusing the government, even with its limited military capacity, of not doing more.
Nigeria is still under the media spot light and we;re waiting to hear that the girls have been re-united with their families.
But what happens next? The media spotlight fades and Nigeria and her citizens are expected to go back to what? For those who dont live in Nigeria but have found their love for her to have been re-awakened, what's next?
I'll be joined by Ayo Sogunro a Nigerian social critic, human rights activist and writer.
It wasn't too long ago, that 'Kony 2012', a short film produced by Invisible Children, Inc..to raise enough awarenss to capture fugitive Ugandan warlord Joseph Kony was the cause celibre. The campaign resulted in Joseph Kony's name being on all media and on the lips of a lot of people. Almost 2 years later, he's still on the run. This year in 2014, the rallying cry is the 276 plus girls kidnapped several weeks ago by the lunitic group Boko Haram, and like 'Kony 2012' Bring Back Our Girls is in all media and on the lips of alot of people. Months from now will the results be the same? Yet more importantly, why is Bring Back Our Girls resonating with so many people when other issues, many close to home, hardly get a few paragraphs in a local newspaper? Lets talk about it...
