Nigeria Terrorist Leader: 'I Abducted Your Girls'
May 5, 2014, 8:27 AM
ABUJA (Reuters) - The Islamist militant group Boko Haram claimed responsibility on Monday for the abduction of more than 200 schoolgirls during a raid in the village of Chibok in northeast Nigeria last month, the French news agency AFP reported, citing a video it had obtained.
"I abducted your girls," Boko Haram leader Abubakar Shekau said in the video, according to AFP. It did not immediately give further details.
Boko Haram on April 14 stormed an all-girl secondary school in the village of Chibok, in Borno state, then packed the teenagers, who had been taking exams, onto trucks and disappeared into a remote area along the border with Cameroon.
The brazenness and sheer brutality of the school attack has shocked Nigerians, who had been growing accustomed to hearing about atrocities in an increasingly bloody five-year-old Islamist insurgency in the north.
Boko Haram, now seen as the main security threat to Africa's leading energy producer, is growing bolder and extending its reach.
The kidnapping occurred the same day as a bomb blast, also blamed on Boko Haram, that killed 75 people on the edge of Abuja and marked the first attack on the capital in two years.
The militants repeated that bomb attack more than two weeks later in almost exactly the same spot, killing 19 people and wounding 34 in the suburb of Nyanya.
The girls' abductions have been hugely embarrassing for the government and threaten to distract attention from its first hosting of the World Economic Forum (WEF) for Africa, this week.

The religion of peace at it again!!!
People don't matter any more in the globalist agenda.
Schools seem to be soft targets everywhere but Israel.
Like muslisms everywhere. Tell CAIR.
I see where the US State Department is offering assistance which has thus far been refused. It’s trying to light a fire under the President of Nigeria to do something — anything but sit on his big butt on this.
So then his wife decides to step in and orders the arrest of two of the mothers who were protesting too loudly for the government to do something.
This is unbelievable to watch —
