Kidnapped Nigeria school girls reportedly sold as brides to Islamic Boko Haram militants - CBS News



LAGOS, Nigeria -- 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.

It's really sad for these girls. It may be a heartless thing to say but I think it would be better for them to be killed and rather than being captive by these crazy people.

There are currently 25000 volunteers ready to go and fight the kidnappers and they've asked the govt to assist with arms.

This might turn to another CAR. I hope that the situation in Nigeria will get resolved soon enough because Africa surely doesn't need anymore ethnic cleansing or religious conflict.

I agree - the situation between the Muslims and Christians has been escalating steadily for the past few years.

I hope that the Nigerian government get's far more international support to look for these girls though

This really bothers me. Why does a young girl/woman reading a book (knowledge) threaten you so?! Better the volunteers try something, because Jonathan doesn't seem to have a clear and or is paralyzed by Boko Haram.

Might sound a bit savage but I would hang anyone associated with the kidnapping as well as any of the "purchasers" of said girls as brides.

Many of the volunteers have been fighting with swords, knives, machetes, and sticks. There are also alot of former soldiers and security personel that volunteered.

Some say that the govt is pursuing the kidnappers behind the scenes, but appearing apathetic in public, I have nothing to confirm that but hear-say but if it were happening it makes sense considering a stipulation made in the request for arms by the volunteers. It could also just be talk. Either way the govt is under ALOT of pressure right now.

who is protecting Black women and young Black girls????
with all due respect Nikki, phuck OUT OF HERE with that divisive bullshit, the men of that region and the relatives of the girls have been fighting the extremists and manage to chase them out into the forrest. You're just as bad as the kidnappers exploiting this situation for that man bashing bullshit you're on. As I said there are 25000 men ready to take this on with no guns. fo again phuck out of here insulting people for being born with a penis.

lol...ask yourself this....WHY

why is it that a thread about a young Black girl getting a beating by her mother, and a thread about a white racist insulting Black men both went for 22 PAGES propelled by Black men...and this one, barely made page 2?

now i am not going to break down the psychology of men supporting corporal punishment against a black female from another Black female...but are SILENT when it comes to men victimizing women

i'm also not going to speak about the Black male's reaction to racism, but refusal to acknowledge his own arrested development,,,

the complete disregard and devaluing of the Black female is a GLOBAL issue...and just because it may not apply to you personally, does not mean it does not exist...so step aside and stop taking shit so personally....what i said is REAL...at what point will you acknowledge that your brothers are failing their communities...this ain't about hurt feelings...so stop whining

Since when are all the members of Imix black makes?

The reactions to the child beating tape and the V Stiviano issue have received worldwide media coverage by countries with races that are NOT majority white or by people of a number of races.

In fact if you check the daily mail article in the uk on the beating you will see over 2000+ comments from BRITISH readers.

Meanwhile there isn't even a story on the kidnapped Nigerian schoolgirls in the paper.

Are you going to blame this on black men too?

HOWEVER I agree that there definitely needs to be MUCH better awareness and coverage on this issue, but the reasons for the lack of coverage transcends gender.

Nigerians and other Africans who battle over imported religions are idiots. As a Cameroonian friend said to me recently; "Africans never used to fight over religion." There are too many fools in Africa who are embracing extremist ideas from Wabism, Madhism (more homegrown, but has its origins in Sudanese Arabs), and Christian evangelicals.
