Grammy Award winner, Alicia Keys demands release of abducted Chibok school girls

Alicia Keys

American R&B singer and multiple Grammy Award winner, Alicia Keys, has also joined in lamenting that it is unbelievable the fact that the over 200 Chibok school girls who were abducted by Islamic extremist group, Boko Haram, have stayed in the captivity of the group for more than six months.

The singer, just like David Awunor did yesterday, charged all concerned, not to give up in pressing for the release of the abducted school girls.

"Putting the spotlight on these girls is very, very important to me and I thought that it is my job to help shine the light on what is going on and show people: this is still happening and we must not forget and it is going on for six months," she spoke in a television interview monitored on CNN.

"Six months and nobody is back and the girls are just there because of the need of education and they are abducted? So that is why we must say that we are not allowing this to dissipate, no, we are going to continue to say we are not standing for this, it is not okay,"

Alicia Keys, spoke just as the Bring Back Our Girls campaign group in Abuja, last night, held a candle light vigil to mark the 180th day of the abduction of the girls from Government Secondary School, Chibok, Borno State.
