LAGOS, NIGERIA (NBC) - It has been more than a month since Islamic extremists kidnapped nearly 300 girls from a school in Nigeria.

And as the search for them continues, protests about why they haven't been located yet are growing.

As the US deepens its involvement in the hunt for these girls, it is a day of protest here in Nigeria.

All schools closed across the country, teachers protesting the lack of progress in finding the girls.

But they're also protesting at the attacks of the terror groups Boko Haram.

They are targets, more than 170 teachers have been killed by Boko Haram.

Meanwhile, the death toll from that horrific bombing on Tuesday has risen to more than 130.

And one final footnote, may is now the deadliest month since the Boko Haram campaign began five years ago with more than 450 people killed, and the government seemingly powerless to fight them.
