Conditions in Nigeria Worsen As Militants Advance

While many of the #SaveOurGirls tweets have stopped, unrest in Nigeria continues to increase. Nearly 12 of the parents of the girls who were kidnapped three months ago have died. Many of the deaths are due to trauma from the mass abduction.

Chibok, the town where the girls were kidnapped, is under siege by the militants and conditions are worsening. The town is cut off due to frequent attacks and resources are low due to harboring families from local villages that have been taken over by Boko Haram. The strain on resources is leading to a famine in already dire situations.

As for the girls who have escaped, they are in recovery and some are beginning to share their experience. But all are worried about their schoolmates who did not escape.

Boko Haram has continued to send threatening videos in an attempt to bargain with the President of Nigeria but his attempts have not worked. While residents have been pleading with the United Nations to interfere, the U.N. is urging the Nigerian government to take control. As a result of lack of action, many residents are starting to lose hope.
