More than 200 Girls Abducted by Nigerian Terrorist Group

More than 200 Girls Abducted by Nigerian Terrorist Group

Who would be so brazen as to admit to the world that his terrorist group abducted more than 200 Nigerian girls from their school in the middle of the night?

Boko Haram admitted earlier this week that it kidnapped the girls from their school in Chibok on April 14. That bold move has caught the attention of the world.  Yesterday, every female member of the Senate (see the list below) signed a letter to President Obama calling on him to take action by implementing sanctions against the terrorist group. The women also called on the United Nations to classify Boko Haram as a terrorist organization, just as our State Department did in 2013.

Late yesterday afternoon, President Obama stated he is sending a team of experts to Nigeria to help in the search for the girls.  Boko Haram is fueled by an anti-Christian, anti-western agenda aimed at doing away with Christians in Nigeria in order to produce a “pure” Islamic state.

Below is a list of signatories on the letter to President Obama. To read more from CWA on this issue, click here.
