President Goodluck Jonathan Accepts US Offer to #BringBackOurGirls

Posted in: , , ,

President Goodluck Jonathan has today accepted an offer from the United States for help in searching for the schoolgirls abducted from Chibok and all other kidnapped women and girls. It was reported that some gunmen had kidnapped eight more girls from another Borno village last night.

According to MSNBC,

"U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry spoke with Jonathan on Tuesday morning and offered to send a team to help find the abducted girls. The president welcomed Kerry’s offer, said Jen Psaki, State Department spokesperson. President Barack Obama issued orders “to do everything we can to help the Nigerian government find and free these young women,” Psaki added."

Boko Haram had earlier this week claimed responsibility for the abduction of the schoolgirls in Nigeria on April 14 and threatened to “sell” the young women on a human market.
