ICC Note: Women and children are always targeted by Islamic radicals who constantly abuse and kill their victims. Many young girls have been abducted, raped and forced into marriage by terrorists like Boko Haram. Additionally, Christian victims are forced to convert to Islam or they are threatened with severe punishments, including death. On 2014, Boko Haram abducted over 200 teenage girls in Chibok and the majority of these victims remain in captivity.
