THE plight of 276 kidnapped schoolgirls was remembered during a protest outside the Nigerian embassy in Dublin yesterday.

Around 25 nurses from the international section of the Irish Nurses and Midwives Organisation (INMO), wore T-shirts and held signs that read 'Bring Back Our Girls', before handing in a letter to the Nigerian ambassador to Ireland, Felix Yusufu.

Schoolgirl Isoken Ugiagbe (7), who was picking up a new passport with her dad, also joined in.

Chairperson of the International section of the INMO, Ibukun Oyedele, said: "There is strength in numbers, and people around the world will hear our voices. We pray that they can help facilitate the quick release of our girls."
