The call to bring home almost 300 kidnapped Nigerian girls has spread all over the world.
Now, a group in Vancouver is gathering to add their voices to the campaign.
A group gathering outside the Vancouver Art Gallery wants to bring more awareness to the girls kidnapped in Nigeria, just for going to school.
Samuel Oseghale from the Nigeria-Canada Development Association of BC says he’s happy to see Canadians support the cause, as he thinks of his two daughters.
“I cannot imagine my daughters being kidnapped in the way these girls were kidnapped. It breaks my heart.”
Oseghale says global pressure needs to be applied.
“If this is not addressed, it will extend from Nigeria to other African countries. It’s unheard of in this time and age, girls are prevented from going to school.”
