The tension and “religious war” in Nigeria is boiling over as the radical muslim group Boko Haram literally rapes Nigeria.
While hundreds of women and children were recently rescued in northeast Nigeria, many were pregnant and suffered emense abuse.
“On April 28, 234 women and children were rescued from Boko Haram in northeast Nigeria and sent to a refugee camp in Yola where they are being treated and receiving aid. According to the United Nations Population Fund, which is providing support to the rescued hostages, at least 214 of them are visibly pregnant.”
Almost 700 women who have been abducted in the past nine months have been rescued in recent weeks, but the horrors they tell will make you weep (you can read the entire story here).
“For nearly six years Boko Haram has wreaked havoc in northeastern Nigeria and killed thousands of innocent civilians, mostly Christians, in the name of terrorism. Experts say the group, which advocates a strict form of Shariah law, is the second deadliest terrorist group in the world after Afghanistan’s Taliban.”
Something must be done.
