Nigerian Government Ends Investigation of 200 Schoolgirls’ Kidnapping

By  |  158 Comments
The Nigerian government has officially closed its investigation behind the kindapping of 200 school girls by Boko Haram.


Reported by April V. Taylor

According to multiple news sources, despite the mounting pressure faced by the Nigerian government to bring back the remaining 219 missing schoolgirls kidnapped by Boko Haram in mid April, the official investigation has been closed. Brigadier General Ibrahim Sabo submitted a final report stating, “We are…pained that the schoolgirls remain in captivity.  The hostage situation that this represents is obviously delicate.”

The government has made little progress in finding and freeing the girls or in stamping out the terrorist group responsible for the kidnappings.  Even more unnerving is the fact that extremists groups have abducted another 91 people during attacks on villages in the days since the announcement of the investigation’s end.  The recent kidnappings underscore the military and government’s failure to provide security or curb the Islamic uprising.  The most recently kidnapped group includes 60 girls and women and 31 boys witnesses report.

The group Boko Haram, which means “Western education is a sin,” got its start as a religious movement that opposed Western culture and spoke out against the corruption of the Nigerian government and exploitation of the country’s oil wealth.  The group initially focused its attacks on government and security officials and Christian and Muslim critics.  However, over the course of the last five years, it has evolved into a militarized insurrection with a profound propensity for violence that appears to attack indiscriminately.  The group’s aim is to see Islamic law enforced throughout Nigeria. The group is thought to be responsible for multiple bombings and kidnappings across the region as well as the destruction of many rural villages.

Former U.S. ambassador to Nigeria John Campbell, who is currently an analyst with the Council of Foreign Relations, predicts that the kidnappings will continue because it has proven to be a successful way to, “focus attention on the shortcomings of the Nigerian government.”

    Why would a government end an investigation into a mass kidnapping of its children unless it knows something that it’s not revealing to the general public? If something sinister has happened then they should be all in to getting the perpetrators of the crime. There’s more to this story.
