ICC Note: Two years have passed since the infamous Boko Haram abduction of 276 mostly-Christian schoolgirls from Chibok, Nigeria and the United Nations (UN) reports realistically that their fate remains unknown and their future grim. 219 remain missing since the incident. The persecution event represents part of a larger terrifying trend where the UN estimates that Boko Haram still holds between 2,000 and 7,000 people captive, mostly women and children.

4/18/16 Nigeria (AllAfrica) – The United Nations (UN) yesterday said the plight of 219 Chibok schoolgirls who were abducted two years ago is a major conflict that is affecting the Northeastern communities.

Fatma Samoura, UN Humanitarian Coordinator for Nigeria, said up to 7,000 women and girls might be living in abduction and sex slavery.
