The BBOG is currently holding its world media conference to commemorate the two years anniversary of the abduction of 219 Chibok schoolgirls.

The girls were abducted by Islamist group Boko Haram in April 2014 from the town of Chibok, Borno state.

Boko Haram militants raided the school while the girls were taking exams. They allegedly loaded about 270 of them onto trucks, but around 50 escaped shortly afterwards.
