A “million-woman march” has been organized in Abuja, Nigeria’s capital, to protest Boko Haram’s recent abduction of over 200 schoolgirls from Chibok, a town in the northeastern portion of the nation.
L’Osservatore Romano, the Vatican’s newspaper, placed news of the march at the top of the front page in its April 30 edition.
World Watch Monitor, which reports on the persecution of Christians, described Chibok as a “mainly Christian enclave” in Borno State, which is largely Muslim.
Citing testimony from a local leader, Agence France-Presse and BBC reported that members of the Islamist terrorist organization sold the girls as brides to fighters.
