1 year later after Nigeria’s Islamic radical group Boko Haram abducted several school girls from northern part of Nigeria, the group is yet to release close to 300 girls back to their parents.
Worldwide campaign under the hash tag #BringBackOurGirls still continues to trend despite the insurgent group holding back a large number of women and girls who have now been turned into sex slaves.
The girls, who some of them have confessed to have been trained how to fight, slaughter infidels, attack villages and how to use bombs add that the group has also killed some of the captives following their attempts to run away.
The girls, who were abducted from Chibok were seized at gun points, raped, prepared for forced marriages and later forced to convert into Islam religion. Muslim clerics across the world have condemned this misinterpretation of the Islam religion.
Some girls have managed to run away from the group. Their stories are heartbreaking. From being trained on how to kill to being used as a sex slave, the militants under the leadership of Boko Haram leader, Abubakar Shekau continue to hold these girls in captivity.
Boko Haram’s atrocities against humanity in Nigeria poses the biggest challenge to the current Nigeria’s president, Muhammudo Buhari who has however promised to clear Boko Haram from Nigeria.
Since 2014, Boko Haram has killed close to 5000 civilians through hit and run attacks, bombings and killings all aimed towards fighting to make Nigeria an Islamic State.
Some of the rescued girls who are now studying at the American University of Nigeria have expressed fear in them for they do not know when the insurgents will attack next.
