Nigerian Schoolgirls Kidnapping

Nigerian Schoolgirls Kidnapping23 posts

On the night of June 14-15, gunmen kidnapped approximately 276 female students from the Government Secondary School in Chibok, Borno State, Nigeria. Boko Haram, a terrorist organization based in northeast Nigeria, later claimed responsibility. Some girls escaped, some were reportedly killed, but most are still missing. The crime has spurred a multinational response, as well as criticism inside Nigeria of the government’s handling of the case.

Lawmaker urges Boko Haram negotiation

Makes Statement

A member of the House of Representatives urges Buhari to negotiate with Boko Haram for the release of the abducted Chibok girls.

However, if it is about the Chibok girls, I support negotiating with Boko Haram. Life is precious. Anything that will bring the girls back is in order. Outside that, we should not negotiate with them. By the way who are we negotiating with? They have no agenda; nothing! They say they are anti book, yet they kill uneducated farmers. They say they are muslims, yet they kill Rasheeds and Ibrahims innocently selling goods at markets in the North East. Meanwhile, with Buhari who has deep background in military and security, I believe we will soon end them (Boko Haram). We also have to block corruption in the military.
