More than 250 schoolgirls, ages 16 to 18, were abducted in the remote town of Chibok, northeastern Nigeria, the by radical Islamist group Boko Haram. The group is strongly opposing to education, because they see it as ‘sinful’, especially for women. The girls are meant to be used by Boko Haram members as rebel camps workers or sex slaves, while, in general, kidnapped boys become fighters. Nigerian president Goodluck Jonathan said: “We promise that anywhere the girls are, we will surely get them out”. Anyway, the government says it isn’t aware of where the girls could be and Nigerian public opinion has doubts on the competence of the government and the security forces.
