Abuja - Canada has condemned recent reports terrorists had abducted more than 90 women and children in Nigeria.
“Canada is deeply concerned by reports that as many as 91 women and children have been abducted by Islamic extremists in Nigeria," stated John Baird, Foreign Affairs Minister.
“We strongly condemn these despicable acts of violence and call for the immediate and safe release of these people back to their families," he added.
