A woman who organised protests against the government over the abduction of more than 200 girls in remote Nigeria, has been detained on the orders of Nigeria's First Lady, Patience Jonathan - according to the BBC.
The girls are thought to have been kidnapped by militant Islamist group Boko Haram. Protesters, mainly family members from remote villages, have said the government are not doing enough to rescue them.
Nigerian President Goodluck Jonathan has told security, school and state officials that "everything must be done" to free the 276 girls held captive by Islamic extremists.
The Nigerian military has flown more than 300 sorties in the hunt for the abducted schoolgirls, a Major has told ITV News' Rageh Omaar.
A newly released video from Boko Haram reportedly shows the kidnapped Nigerian schoolgirls.
The man who started a viral hashtag campaign in support of the kidnapped Nigerian schoolgirls says it has forced the government to act.
