Finally a glimpse of Hope about the Abducted School Girls in Nigeria’s Christian state secondary school

Yesterday was the 2-years anniversary of the abduction of 276 girls from a primarily Christian State Secondary School by the Boko Haram terrorist group in the town of Chibok, Borno State since April 14th, 2014.

The kidnapped girls are school girls within the age range of 16 to 18 years old. There were forcefully taken by the Boko Haram group on the night of April 14th, 2014 from the comfort of their school’s dormitories. Shortly after that attack that led to the abduction fifty (50) of the girls managed to escape from the terrorist nest, but 219 are still missing.

The Nigerian government is widely criticized for not doing so much to rescue the long missing girls.

But what seem to be a glimpse of Hope since 2-years ago came this week in a video sent to the Nigerian government by the terrorist. It’s a video showing just fifteen (15) of the the abducted girls.

In the video, Naomi Zakaria, one of the missing girls, says: “I am speaking on 25 December 2015 on behalf of the all the Chibok girls and we are all well.”

Boko Haram – the name means “western education is forbidden” or “western influence is a sin” – force their captives to convert to Islam.

Boys are trained to become fighters for them; girls, who the Islamist extremists believe should not be educated, may become suicide bombers, but most are treated as sex slaves, forcibly married to members of the group.
