On April 15, 2014, 276 Nigerian school girls were kidnapped by the terrorist group Boko Haram. Activists from around the world criticized the Nigerian government's response to the kidnapping, even claiming the government was aware the attacks would happen but took no preventative actions. The Nigerian government has been further criticized for not taking adequate measures to find all of the girls. As a response in early May 2014, the hash tag #BringBackOurGirls started to trend throughout the world on social media. It has been over three years since the schoolgirls have been missing and there is no clear sign of return from all of the missing girls. By early 2017, 82 of the captured girls had been released from captivity. However, there are still around 194 girls missing.
