Many Nigerian celebrities based in London were also present at the protest to support the campaign, including veteran media personality DJ Abass, singer May7even amongst others.

It has now been three weeks since almost 30 girls were abducted from their dormitories and experts fear that the clock is ticking in the race to bring them back to their families alive and well.

#BringBackOurGirls has so far been retweeted more than a million times on twitter with many celebrities and human rights group leading calls for the world to do more to help find the girls, most of whom are no more than 12.

Boko Haram has since claimed responsiblity for the abduction and the world can only wait and hope that with the assistance of Countries like the US, UK and Canada now assisting the Nigerian government, some progress will be made in the search…..and in good time.
