STORYLINE:

Nigerians marched on the streets of Abuja on Tuesday calling for more more do be done to secure the release of the abducted schoolgirls from the militant group Boko Haram.

The demonstrators wore red t-shirts and held up banners reading "Bring back our girls."

Boko Haram, the militant group that is holding some 276 female students it kidnapped last month from a boarding school in northeast Nigeria, said the girls will only be freed after the government releases jailed militants.

The protestors were granted audience with the governor of Borno state who said that his government and the federal government were doing all that was possible to get the girls back.

Tomorrow marks thirty days since the girls were abducted from their boarding school by in Chibok, Borno state Nigeria.

The mass abductions and failure of Nigeria's government and military to rescue the girls has aroused outrage at home and abroad.
