The leader of an extremist group that has kidnapped more than 200 girls in Nigeria said they would release them in exchange for some of its jailed fighters. Nigerian citizens have taken to social media to bring international awareness to the incident and put pressure on “Boko Haram” and the government to find and rescue the girls. A rally is planned this Sunday in Sacramento in conjunction with "BringBackOurGirls." We'll talk about the latest news with Dr. Ernest Uwazie, Director of the African Center for Peace and Conflict Resolution at Sacramento State, and Arinze V. Chukwuneta, President of the Sacramento Association of Nigerians.
