UK remembers kidnapped Chibok girls

14 April 2015, 15:13

Lagos - Kingdom Minister for Africa, James Duddridge, has restated his country's concern for the missing Chibok girls.

Boko Haram abducted the more than 200 girls in the Borno State exactly a year ago.

Duddridge used the one year anniversary of the  abduction to reinforce concern for the victims of Boko Haram, and restated UK's support to Nigeria.

"We must not forget the brutal abduction of 270 schoolgirls from Chibok one year ago today," he said.

He said his thoughts were with the victims of this terrible crime, their families and the thousands of other men, women and children abducted by Boko Haram in North East Nigeria.

"There can be no justification for these abductions," Duddridge said.

The UK is supporting Nigeria and its neighbours in efforts to end the conflict and find those abducted.

"And we will work closely with Nigeria’s new government to restore security and prosperity to areas blighted by conflict," the Minister added.
