The Abuja wing of the "Bring Back Our Girls" protest group march calling for the release of the Nigerian schoolgirls in Chibok who were kidnapped by Islamist militant group Boko Haram, on May 22, 2014. 

One of the schoolgirls whose abduction triggered the #BringBackOurGirls campaign has been located after more than two years in captivity, an activist and Nigeria's military said Wednesday.

The mass kidnapping of 276 schoolgirls by Boko Haram from the Nigerian town of Chibok in April 2014 ignited an international outcry. The ensuing #BringBackOurGirls campaign was backed by the likes of Michelle Obama, while the U.S. and other countries sent military assistance.
