It’s been almost two weeks since more than 200 Nigerian schoolgirls were kidnapped by Islamist group, Boko Haram.

The sect members abducted the girls from their dormitories, loaded them onto trucks, before setting the boarding school ablaze. The girls are aged between 13 to 18.

With no news on whether the girls are still alive, Tottenham’s Emmanuel Adebayor has joined those calling for their release. He expressed concern on his Instagram account.

The Togo international’s heartfelt message read: “Over 200 girls have been kidnapped in a school in Nigeria over 2 weeks ago. This needs to end now.

“As a father it breaks my heart knowing that the kidnapping of these girls hasn’t been resolved yet and they are still missing.

“As the whole world can search for a plane that is missing, they certainly can help out bringing these school children home. Bring back our girls home.”
