"Our prayers are with the missing Nigerian girls and their families. It's time to #BringBackOurGirls," she wrote.
Her husband, US President Barack Obama, has already pledged his support to those kidnapped and their families, offering to provide assistance.
Earlier today, dozens of angry protesters gathered outside the Nigerian Embassy in Dublin calling for the safe return of the hundreds of kidnapped schoolgirls who were taken during a raid on a Nigerian school last month.
The demonstration took place at the embassy on Leeson Park, and the angry protestors carried signs and shouted chants of ‘Bring Back Our Girls’.
