Pope Francis calls for immediate release of kidnapped Nigerian schoolgirls

Pope Francis has called for immediate release of kidnapped Nigerian schoolgirls.

“Let us all join in prayer for the immediate release of the schoolgirls kidnapped in Nigeria. #BringBackOurGirls,” the Pope posted on his official Twitter account.

Boko Haram militants carried out an armed raid on the state-run boarding school in Chibok and abducted more than 240 schoolgirls on 14th – 15th April 2014.

So far no one knows where the girls are.
