Nobel peace laureate Malala Yousafzai has written an open letter about the abduction of more than 200 schoolgirls in Nigeria by militant Islamist group Boko Haram.

The letter comes a day before the second anniversary of the abductions of the girls from their dormitories in the north-eastern town of Chibok, reports the BBC.

She writes: “As I did last year, I call on President Buhari of Nigeria – and everyone who can help rescue the Chibok girls – to act now.

“Would a president give up the fight for his own daughter? These girls are just as precious to their families.

“My dream is that one day they will come home, finish their education and choose their futures for themselves.”
