2014-05-16 11:29

Members of the Young Communist League of SA (YCLSA) plan to picket at the Nigerian High Commission in Pretoria on Monday over the kidnapping of over 200 girls in the West African nation.

“The YCLSA will show its support and demand the immediate release of the more than 200 schoolgirls that have been kidnapped,” spokesperson Khaya Xaba said today.

The demonstration was scheduled to begin at 11am on Monday.

The schoolgirls were kidnapped from a school in Chibok in north-eastern Borno State by Islamic militant group Boko Haram on April 14.

Another eight girls were kidnapped by the group days later. The number of girls taken was 276 according to the Associated Press.
