Lagos - Girl right activist, Malala Yousafzai, on Monday urged the federal government to do more to ensure the return of the missing Chibok school girls abducted by Boko Haram on April 14, 2014.
She made the appeal in an open letter issued by Girl Right Activist Mission in the United Nations to mark the one year anniversary since the Chibok girls were abducted from school.
She expressed her support and solidarity with the abducted Nigerian school girls.
She said: "On this first anniversary of your captivity, I write to you a message of solidarity, love and hope.

"I am one of the millions of people around the world who keep you and your families foremost in our thoughts and prayers.
"We cannot imagine the full extent of the horrors you have endured. But please know this, we will never forget you.
"We will always stand with you today and every day; we call on the Nigerian authorities and the international community to do more to bring you home.
"We will not rest until you have been reunited with your families.’’
Yousafzai recalled that she was once a target of militants who did not want girls to attend school in her native country of Pakistan.
"Gunmen shot me and two of my friends on a school bus; all three of us survived and are back in school.
"Our campaign will continue until you and all girls and boys around the world are able to access a free, safe and quality secondary education,’’ she said.
Yousafzai visited Nigeria in July 2014, where she celebrated her 17th birthday with some parents and five classmates of the Chibok girls who escaped.
