Boko Haram Threatens To Kidnap Christian Women In Nigeria 

ICC Note

We are going to put into action new efforts to strike fear into the Christians of the power of Islam by kidnapping their women.

03/09/2012 Nigeria (Barnabas Fund)-Militant Islamist group Boko Haram has followed up its declaration of “war” on Christians in Nigeria with a threat to kidnap Christian women as part of its latest “campaign of terror”.

We are going to put into action new efforts to strike fear into the Christians of the power of Islam by kidnapping their women.

Boko Haram, which has been fighting to establish an Islamic state in Northern Nigeria since 2009, has stepped up since Christmas its efforts to drive Christians out of the region.

On Sunday (4 March), the spokesman said:
