Hundreds Of Young Girls Kidnapped In Nigeria And Forced To Marry Extremists
nigeriakidnappedgirlsextremists

Scores of girls and young women kidnapped from a school in Nigeria are being forced to marry their Islamic extremist abductors, a civil society group reported Wednesday.

Parents say the girls are being sold into marriage to Boko Haram militants for 2,000 naira ($12), Halite Aliyu of the Borno-Yobe People’s Forum told The Associated Press. She said the parents’ information is coming from villagers in the Sambisa Forest, on Nigeria’s border with Cameroon, where Boko Haram is known to have hideouts.

“The latest reports are that they have been taken across the borders, some to Cameroon and Chad,” Aliyu said. It was not possible to immediately verify the reports.

The Nigerian government needs to get international help to rescue the more than 200 missing girls kidnapped in the northeast by the Boko Haram terrorist network two weeks ago, said a federal senator for the area in northeastern Nigeria. The government must do “whatever it takes, even seeking external support to make sure these girls are released,” Sen. Ali Ndume said. “The longer it takes the dimmer the chances of finding them, the longer it takes the more traumatized the family and the abducted girls are.”

About 50 of the kidnapped girls managed to escape from the captors in the first days after their abduction, but some 220 remain missing, according to the principal of the Chibok Girls Secondary School, Asabe Kwambura. They are between 16 and 18 years old and had been recalled to the school to write a physics exam.

The mass kidnapping came hours after a massive explosion in Abuja, the capital in the center of the country, killed at least 75 people and wounded 141.

The failure to rescue the girls is a massive embarrassment to Nigeria’s government and the military,  already confronted by mounting criticism over its apparent inability to curb the 5-year-old Islamic uprising despite having draconian powers through an 11-month state of emergency in three northeastern states covering one-sixth of the country.

The military trumpets a success in its “onslaught on terrorists” but then the extremists step up the tempo and deadliness of their attacks. More than 1,500 people have been killed in the insurgency so far this year, compared to an estimated 3,600 between 2010 and 2013.

Jonathan, who is from the predominantly Christian south of Nigeria, has been accused of insensitivity to the plight of people in the north, who are mainly Muslims.

The military’s failure to rescue the girls also highlights that large parts of northeastern Nigeria remain beyond the control of the government. Until the kidnappings, the air force had been mounting near-daily bombing raids since mid-January on the Sambisa Forest and mountain caves bordering Chad.

Aliyu said that in northeastern Nigeria “life has become nasty, short and brutish. We are living in a state of anarchy.”

She said she will be among women marching in Abuja on Wednesday to protest the failure to rescue the kidnapped girls



Ihope the US will send a couple drones to blow the extremists to hell where they belong.

There's only one side of this issue sensibly to be occupied, nonetheless there's a message in this event for us regarding the impotence of the state. But what ah saying! We are Trinis. We feel we've consummated the zenith of statal impotence.

That is exactly how most of our Afro-Caribbean ancestors were captured and sold into slavery and ended up being shipped to the Caribbean and it wasn't the European man who did the capturing most of the time.

How Abducted Schoolgirls Are Raped 15 Times A Day — Full Story




The about 300 students abducted on April 14 from Government Girls Secondary School, Chibok, in Borno State are passing through hard times, with some of them being raped up to 15 times a day, one of those who escaped has disclosed.

According to a report published today by the British newspaper Daily Mirror, “Families of the schoolgirls, aged from 15 to 18, are certain their daughters are now being used as sex slaves by an extreme sect that has killed 1,500 people since the start of this year alone.

“They are captives in the wild Sambisa Forest in north-east Nigeria where Boko Haram has a heavily armed camp of bunkers, tunnels, ramshackle buildings and tents.

“One girl who recently escaped following an earlier kidnapping said she was prized as a terror leader’s wife because she had been a virgin. She said young female captives were raped up to 15 times a day, forced to convert to Islam and had their throats cut if they refused.”

The paper reports that “under President Goodluck Jonathan, the Nigerian government appears to have done little except issue an entirely false claimthat most of the girls had been rescued by defence forces.”
It quotes Mma Odi, executive director of the Nigerian charity Baobab Women’s Human Rights, as saying:

“It is a very bad situation for those girls. The men went to the school for no other reason than to make them their sex objects. The men will have reduced them to sex slaves, raping them over and over again.

And any girl who tries to resist will be shot by them. They have no conscience.


“The conditions will be terrible and it seems like the government has just abandoned them because they are girls and they are poor. If they were the sons of the rich, the government would act.


“Their abductors are not human beings and if the girls get out they will no longer be normal. They will have to have years of counselling to recover.” •Photo shows four of the abducted girls who managed to escape.


Also indicting the Nigerian military and the Jonathan administration, Professor Hauwa Biu, a women’s rights campaigner based at the University of Maiduguri, told Mirror: “They claim they are on top of the situation, that they are in the bush, but they are not there. If the government had acted straight away then they could have followed the gunmen’s footsteps or tyre tracks, but over the past weeks rain and leaves have fallen, covering them up.

“Meanwhile, nobody knows what kind of conditions they will be living in the camp.
“I cannot think what these girls must be going through.
“I have been told that the men feed them and treat them quite well, but we also know that other girls kidnapped have been highly molested.

“If the government had just acted straight away they could have saved these girls.”
The number of stolen girls has yet to become clear. It was previously put at over 100 but yesterday the Nigerian police said 223 girls are still missing after 53 managed to escape. Mirror, however, insists that 329 girls were abducted and that 276 are still missing.

310 people killed in latest Boko Haram attack while hundreds of girls remain missing
By Vladimir Duthiers, Holly Yan and Chelsea J. Carter, CNN

STORY HIGHLIGHTS
NEW: Residents: Boko Haram's latest attack killed 310 people
United States and Britain are sending teams to help Nigerian forces
Nigerian authorities offer a reward for information leading to the girls' rescue
China offers satellite and intelligence assistance in the search for girls
 
CNN anchor Isha Sesay will be live from Abuja on CNN International on Thursday at 5, 7, 8.30 and 9 p.m. CET.
Abuja, Nigeria (CNN) -- As the world fumes over Boko Haram's kidnapping of hundreds of girls, the terror group's latest attack in northern Nigeria has left 310 people dead, residents said.
The world still doesn't know what happened to the 276 girls kidnapped almost a month ago, except that Boko Haram's leader said he plans to sell them.

Now, the militants may be going after those trying to find the girls.
The latest attack took place in the town of Gamboru Ngala. Troops had been using the area as a base in the search, witnesses told CNN Wednesday. Some of the victims were burned alive.
Word of the attack Monday came after President Goodluck Jonathan accepted U.S., British and Chinese offers of assistance to find the schoolgirls, officials from those governments said.
It's unclear what impact the latest attack could have on the international response to Nigeria's fight with Boko Haram.

Even as several countries ratchet up their support in finding the girls, the inability to find them so far has been unnerving.
"Every day when I wake up and I think about young girls in Nigeria or children caught up in the conflict in Syria, when there are times in which I want to reach out and save those kids, and having to think through what levers, what powers do we have at any given moment," U.S. President Barack Obama said Wednesday night in Los Angeles.

"I think drop by drop by drop that we can erode and wear down these forces that are so destructive."
Exactly how remains a mystery.
The latest assault
Witnesses described a well-coordinated attack that began shortly after 1:30 p.m. local time Monday at a busy outdoor market in Gamboru Ngala.

Wearing military uniforms, the militants arrived with three armored personnel carriers, they said.
They shouted "Allahu Akbar" -- "God is great" -- and opened up on the market, firing rocket-propelled grenades and tossing improvised explosive devices, witnesses said.
Some marketgoers tried to take shelter in shops only to be burned alive when the gunmen set fire to a number of the businesses, the witnesses said.

A few Nigerian soldiers who had been left behind at the village could not hold off the assault and were forced to flee, they said. Many sought safe haven in nearby Cameroon, they said.
The fighters also attacked the police station during the 12-hour assault, initially facing stiff resistance. They eventually used explosives to blow the roof off the building, witnesses said. They said 14 police officers were found dead inside.

The final death toll could be closer to 300, Nigerian Sen. Ahmed Zanna told CNN.

 US offering help for kidnapped girls
Monday's bloody attack by Boko Haram militants, some of whom U.S. officials say have been trained by al Qaeda, follows a pattern of revenge-seeking against anybody perceived to have provided aid to the Nigerian government.

International effort
Nigerian police announced a 50 million naira ($319,000) cash reward for information leading to the rescue of the 276 girls kidnapped from the Government Girls Secondary School in Chibok. The announcement came after Nigeria's government came under harsh criticism for its response.
The girls from Chibok aren't alone. At least eight girls between the ages of 12 and 15 were snatched Sunday night from the village of Warabe by Boko Haram, villagers said.

The Pentagon has started planning for how it can help Nigeria, a senior U.S. military official told CNN. It's unlikely at this point that U.S. troops would be involved in operations, the officials said.
Britain is sending a small team of experts to complement the U.S. team, a spokesman for Prime Minister David Cameron said Wednesday, but the spokesman didn't specify the nature of the team's expertise.
And Chinese Premier Li Keqiang offered satellite and intelligence services to aid in the search.

'I will sell women'
The increased global response to the April 14 abductions came after a chilling video described what may happen to the girls.
A man claiming to be Boko Haram's leader, Abubakar Shekau made the following claim:
"I abducted your girls. I will sell them in the market, by Allah," he said. "There is a market for selling humans. Allah says I should sell. He commands me to sell. I will sell women. I sell women."

Boko Haram translates to "Western education is sin" in the local Hausa language. The group has said it wants a stricter enforcement of Sharia law across Africa's most populous nation, which is split between a majority Muslim north and a mostly Christian south.

The militants have even been known to kill Muslim clerics who dare criticize them.
The United States has branded Boko Haram a terror organization and has put a $7 million bounty on Shekau. But his location is as uncertain as the whereabouts of the girls.
Why hasn't the rescue effort produced results?

They will be found. Same mechanisms used to locate Joseph Kony.
