Grammy Award winning artiste, Alicia Keys has signed the online petition calling on the government of Nigeria to do more towards rescuing over 200 schoolgirls abducted from Chibok, Borno in April.
The girls were reportedly kidnapped from their school, Government Girls’ Secondary School by men believed to be members of the Boko Haram Islamic group.
In an emotion-filled post, Alicia Keys called on well-meaning individuals to join in calling for their release describing the situation as a “tragedy”.
Here’s what she said: “On my lil guys birthday I stand with the mothers of Chibok!! We can’t ignore 6 months of this tragedy!! What if it was you or me? I want to remind you that in this darkness, your voice matters! #BringBackOurGirlsNOW!! Let’s do something about this. I’ve signed this, now you! Sign this petition and make your voices heard.”
