Boko Haram terrorists hold dozens of schoolgirls captive

In Nigeria, the Boko Haram terrorist organization has been holding 82 schoolgirls for ten years, whom the militants stole during an attack on a school for girls on April 14, 2014.

The incident took place in the city of Chibk, about 125 kilometers from the Maiduguri, the Borno Administrative Center.

In total, 276 schoolgirls were stolen. Some of them were saved as a result of operations of the Nigeria Army, others were able to escape from terrorists.

According to Amnesty International, 82 more girls remain in captivity.

In an interview with an agency “Anadol” Rebecca Samuel, the mother of Sarah, one of the stolen girls, said that all families live with the hope of returning their children.

According to her, the last time she heard about her daughter in 2018 from rescued schoolgirls. “I believe that my daughter is still alive, I pray for it every day. I have no doubt that she will return to the whole and unharmed,” said the agency’s interlocutor.

Samuel noted that the Nigeria government announced that it is making efforts to search for stolen schoolgirls, but the measures taken by the authorities are not enough.

“All families of stolen girls want to save their children, so we ask the government to take urgent measures for this,” she said.
