“We join the rest of the world in condemning this act and call for the immediate release of these girls by the terrorist group,” the Deputy Speaker said.

Aswa County Member of Parliament Hon Reagan Okumu said that a similar incident had taken place in Uganda with the abduction of girls by the Kony rebels in 1996.

“I associate myself with the people of Nigeria and I urge the terrorists to release the girls because they are innocent souls,” he said.

He added that the abduction is backward and uncalled for and the Nigerian government together with the international community should come to the rescue of these young girls.


On April 14, the Boko Haram attacked a secondary school in North Eastern Nigeria and abducted 234 girls and took them to their base in the Sambisa Forest.

Of these, only 43 have managed to escape so far.

There have been calls by the parents of the abducted girls to have them rescued with some threatening to go into the forest to do it themselves.
