Boko Haram leader: The kidnapped girls will be sold according to God’s laws

5 May 2014

The leader of the Islamist group “Boko Haram” announced in a video, obtained by Agence France-Presse on Monday, that the girls who were kidnapped in mid-April in northeastern Nigeria will be “sold as slaves and married by force.”

Abu Bakr Shekau said: “The girls were kidnapped. I will sell them in the market according to God’s laws.” The 223 students are considered missing and news has broke about the possibility of them being transferred to neighbouring Chad and Cameroon, where they will be sold for $12 each.

Shekau said that the kidnapping of the girls raised anger “because are detaining people as slaves,” adding that he abducted the girls because “Western education must stop.” He said that the girls must “leave school and get married.”
