Boko Haram girls ‘sale’ could be crime against humanity: UN

Anger and frustration have escalated in Nigeria at the government’s failure to find the girls.

AFP – The UN human rights office warned Tuesday the threatened sale into slavery of hundreds of schoolgirls kidnapped by Boko Haram Islamists may constitute a crime against humanity.

“We are deeply concerned about the outrageous claims made in a video believed to be by the leader of Boko Haram in Nigeria yesterday, in which he brazenly says he will sell the abducted schoolgirls ‘in the market’ and ‘marry them off’, referring to them as ‘slaves,’” said Rupert Colville, spokesman for UN rights chief Navi Pillay.

A total 276 students were kidnapped three weeks ago from their boarding school in Chibok, northern Nigeria. Several managed to escape but over 220 girls were still being held, according to police.

In a video obtained by AFP Monday, Boko Haram claimed the 14 April abduction and issued its threat, sparking international anger.

“We condemn the violent abduction of these girls,” Colville told reporters.

“We warn the perpetrators that there is an absolute prohibition against slavery and sexual slavery in international law. These can, under certain circumstances, constitute crimes against humanity. The girls must be immediately returned, unharmed, to their families,” he said.

Anger and frustration have escalated in Nigeria at the government’s failure to find the girls.

Pillay has written to Nigeria’s President Goodluck Jonathan urging his government to spare no effort to bring the girls home safely and to protect children’s rights overall.

During a visit to Nigeria earlier this year, Pillay described the actions of Boko Haram as “increasingly monstrous”.

  1. The return to a savagely corrupt state of being is occurring right there in front of our eyes in real time. Is this the world we have to live in? Boko haram, even the name is some kind of cynical joke. Boko stand for books and haram means against God and this is how far the delusional system has now gone: mass kidnapping of children to sell as slaves…what is left in the march to utter debasement. All women and men of conscience need to stand together and ensure the freedom of these girls and the severe punishment of these barbarians. Religion is deeply damaged by these thugs, let them have it now on all fronts-retribution for the criminals and freedom for the young women. Maybe even a standing “mass crimes against women force” to deploy where women need large scale rescuing. The knowledge of this retribution will surely decrease these flagrant violations.
