Abducted School Girls Sold To Islamist Fighters Abroad At $12 Each – Chibok Elder


A community leader in Chibok, claimed the girls abducted by suspected members of the Boko Haram sect had been sold as wives abroad.

According to Pogo Bitrus, leader of a Chibok elders group, the captured girls are being offered to Boko Haram fighters at $12 each.

Bitrus said that locals had been tracking the movements of the hostages with the help of “various sources” across the northeast.

“From the information we received yesterday from Cameroonian border towns our abducted girls were taken into Chad and Cameroon,” he said.

The girls were then sold as brides to Islamist fighters for 2,000 naira ($12) each, Bitrus added.

Meanwhile, parents of the abducted girls slammed the government on Tuesday over failure to rescue scores of schoolgirls kidnapped two weeks ago by Boko Haram Islamists.

“May God curse every one of those who have failed to free our girls,” said Enoch Mark, whose daughter and two nieces were among the more than 234 students abducted from the Government Girls Secondary School in the Chibok area of northeastern Borno state.

The attack was one of the most shocking in Boko Haram’s five-year uprising, which has claimed thousands of lives across northern and central Nigeria.
