12-year-old Alimatou Drammeh calls for release of kidnapped Nigerian girls

Last week, more than 100 young girls gathered at the American Corner, on Kairaba Avenue to lend a voice for the immediate release of the Nigerian school girls kidnapped by the Boko Haram rebel group.

Among them was 12-year-old Alimatou Drammeh. She expressed sadness over the crises and urged Gambians to join the campaign in ensuring that the girls are located and returned to their parents safely.

“They should let them free, so that they can be able to continue their education,” the St. Therese’s fifth grader told What’s On-Gambia.

Alimatou, who is one of the most outspoken girls in her school, added: “They’re selfish because they think it is more serious to kidnap girls than boys.”

She said the Nigerian government should do more to tackle the Boko Haram rebels.

“Why are they denying girls the right to go to school?”

More than 200 girls were taken from their boarding school by the Boko Haram on the 14th April, 2014, and still there is no solid evidence on the whereabouts of the girls.
