Christian body asks FG to prosecute Boko Haram insurgents who married and impregnated abducted Chibok girls

A Christian group, Christian Solidarity Worldwide Nigeria (CSWN) has demanded the prosecution of Boko Haram insurgents who married and impregnated abducted Chibok girls.

The group demanded for the prosecution of insurgents who married and impregnated Ruth Ngladar Pogu and Hassana Adamu.

The two girls from Chibok, Borno state, recently reemerged after seven years in captivity with two children each and their captors who claimed to be their “husbands”.

In a statement released by CSWN's research and press officer, Reuben Buhari, it was stated that the girls were forcefully married and “violators of the girls who parade themselves as their husbands” must be brought to justice over the insensitive act.

The statement read;

“After seven years in forceful, dehumanising and unlawful captivity, two abducted students of the Government Girls Secondary School in Chibok, Borno state have been found.

“First, it was Ruth Ngladar Pogu and the man erroneously referred to as her ‘husband’ who presented themselves to the security on July 28, 2021, in Bama.

“On Saturday, July 14, 2021, Hassana Adamu was also found with two children in Gwoza. Both girls were found with children from their abductors.

“The CSWN expresses its joy on this promising good news that holds the prospect of more girls getting their freedom.

“However, our concern stems from the fundamental human rights of these girls that were willfully violated.

“The Nigerian government may continue with its re-radicalisation programme that birthed the worrying terminology of ‘repentant terrorists, but we in CSWN, in view of the fact that Nigeria is governed by laws, call for the full application of all relevant laws on those who violated the girls.

“This would show the supremacy of law over lawlessness and impunity, and a consolation to the victims of insurgency trying to rebuild their lives or still wallowing in IDP camps.”
