In May, First Lady Michelle Obama joined fellow Twitter users in support of the kidnapped Nigerian Christian schoolgirls. The girls were kidnapped by Islamic Boko Haram terrorists. The First Lady was hoping her brave tweet would somehow persuade the terrorists to release the kidnapped girls.
But, to the surprise of no one, the terrorists did not release the girls.
Instead, Boko Haram announced this week that they have married off the 200 kidnapped Christian girls to terrorist fighters.
The girls were married off and converted to Islam.
FOX News reported:
The leader of Nigerian Islamic extremist group Boko Haram announced in a video released Friday that more than 200 kidnapped schoolgirls had been married off and converted to Islam, dismissing claims by the Nigerian government that it had agreed to a truce.
“If you knew the state your daughters are in today, it might lead some of you … to die from grief,” Abubakar Shekau sneered, addressing the parents of the girls and young women kidnapped from a remote boarding school more than six months ago.
In the video, the Boko Haram leader also denied there was a cease-fire with the Nigerian government.
“A lie,” Mr. Shekau said, according to The Wall Street Journal. The girls, he claimed, had now been married off and converted to Islam. “They have now memorized two chapters of the Quran.”
“In this war, there is no going back,” he said in the video received by The Associated Press in the same way as previous messages.
