ISLAMIC TERRORISTS STILL HOLDING NIGERIAN CHRISTIAN GIRLS FIVE YEARS LATER

Your heart must break, Lord, for the suffering the young girls of Chibok have endured. May your presence be with them and felt by each one. We pray for their release.
243 People Prayed

Sunday marks the fifth anniversary of the terrorist group Boko Haram kidnapping 276 schoolgirls in the Nigerian town of Chibok. More than 100 remain missing, according to officials.

The United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF) said this week the number of children Boko Haram has kidnapped and killed is likely much higher:

Those that have been rescued or escaped have been receiving help from UN Children’s Fund, UNICEF, which says that since 2013, more than 3,500 children have been recruited and used by non-state armed groups in the north-east of the country.

It has warned that these numbers are only those that have been verified, while the true figures are likely to be higher. In addition to these children, last year, 432 children were killed and maimed, 180 were abducted, and 43 girls were sexually abused in this conflict-wracked part of the Lake Chad region.

Media reports citing those released or escaped have detailed what unfolded over the past five years for some of the girls.

Deborah Peters escaped from Boko Haram and eventually came to the United States with the help of human rights activists. The then-15-year-old spoke at the Hudson Institute in Washington, DC, in 2014, where she shared her chilling story of witnessing Boko Haram kill her father and brother.

“Three men knocked on our door, and then my brother opened the door for them,” Peters said. “And they asked him, ‘Where is your dad?’ And he told them, ‘My dad is in the bathroom taking a shower.’”

Peters said the terrorists told her father he was “wasting their time.”

“So when they take [sic] him out of the bathroom, they told him that he should deny his faith,” Peters said. “He told them that he can’t deny his faith, so they told him that they were going to kill him if he didn’t deny his faith.

“But he told them that he should rather die than to go to hellfire,” Peters said. “So my dad refused to deny his faith, and then they shoot [sic] him three times in the chest.”

The Islamic terrorists also shot her brother three times, then tied up Deborah and left her lying between the two corpses.

“I was in shock,” Peters said.

The Religious News Service told the story of Dorcas, another of the Chibok survivors:

“At 15 years old that Sunday, she was one of the youngest of the Chibok girls kidnapped from the Chibok secondary government school.

Dorcas’ parents, Esther Yakubu and Yakubu Kabu, learned about their daughter’s fate only when they saw her featured in a 2016 Boko Haram “proof of life” video. She was the only girl who spoke. She asked her parents to beg the Nigerian government to agree to Boko Haram’s demands so that all the Chibok girls could return home. “There is no suffering we have not seen,” she said.” “Tell the government to give them their people so we can come to be with you. Our sisters are injured. Exercise patience as we also have endured.”

One year later, in May 2017, Dorcas appeared in another video. But this time her message was different. Holding an AK-47 rifle, Dorcas stated she did not want to return home because her parents live in a town of unbelievers and they are not fulfilling Allah’s wishes

Senators Tammy Baldwin (D-WI) and Marco Rubio (R-FL) on April 11 introduced a bipartisan resolution recognizing the fifth anniversary, and calling on the Nigerian government to prioritize the recovery of women and girls Boko Haram abducted and enslaved and the governments of the United States and Nigeria to swiftly implement measures to defeat Boko Haram.

President Muhammadu Buhari made defeating Boko Haram a promise in his 2015 election campaign. He has repeatedly – and falsely – claimed the group has been defeated.

“But his administration has failed to defeat the decade-long insurgency, who have been waging attacks since 2009, with an uptick in attacks on military bases and strategic towns ahead of February elections, in which Buhari secured a second term,” Reuters reported.
