US reiterates demand for freedom of Chibok girls

13 April 2016, 21:41

Abuja - The United States has demanded the release of the more than 200 schoolgirls the Boko Haram kidnapped in Borno State almost two years ago.

The militant Islamic sect abducted the minors at a school in Chibok on the night on April 14-15, 2014.

“As we approach the second anniversary of the kidnapping of more than 200 Nigerian girls from their school in Chibok, the United States again calls for the immediate release, without preconditions, of all hostages held by Boko Haram,” said Mark Toner, Deputy Department of State Spokesperson.

He said the kidnapping of these young women, along with the kidnappings of countless others by Boko Haram, epitomized the terrorist group’s depravity.

The US continues to assist the Nigerian government’s efforts to locate and bring home all those who have been kidnapped by Boko Haram with intelligence and advisory support.

The country is also delivering over $240 million in development and humanitarian assistance across the Lake Chad Basin region to provide conflict-affected populations and refugees with transitional assistance, psycho-social services, health programmes and emergency education for children displaced by violence.
