NIGERIA: More than 200 schoolgirls kidnapped, gang-raped, converted to Islam, then sold off for $12 a piece by Islamic militants of Boko Haram

The likelihood is that most of the girls are Christians. Nigeria’s Christian population comprises about half the population, the rest are Muslims.

Most of the 234 Borno schoolgirls in Boko Haram captivity have been ferried abroad to Chad and Cameroon after they were married off to sect members on $12 price each, an elder told Daily Trust yesterday. The female students were taken from their hostels at the Government Girls Secondary School Chibok on the night of April 14. About 40 had escaped in the days after the incident, but parents and school authorities said at least 234 of them were yet to be found.
