76 Nigerian Schoolgirls Rescued After Being Kidnapped by Boko Haram
ICC Note: The Christian Post reports that 76 of the 91 Nigerian schoolgirls abducted by Boko Haram a week ago have been rescued. The radical group abducted at least 276 girls from the Christian town of Chibok in 2014.
2/23/2018 Nigeria (Christian Post) – As many as 76 Nigerian schoolgirls have been rescued after they were abducted by the Islamic terrorist group Boko Haram from their school on Monday, while 13 are still believed to be missing and two are dead.
School officials and families feared for the lives of 91 girls who had gone missing after Boko Haram’s raid on the Government Girls Science and Technical Secondary School in the Dapachi town of Yobe state on Monday.
The attack marked the latest school raid carried out by the Islamic State-aligned faction, which gained international attention when it kidnapped more than 270 schoolgirls from a government school in Chibok in April 2014.
