Nigerian Girls Married to Kidnappers in Mass Weddings

The horrifying story of more than 200 teenage girls in Nigeria who were kidnapped by an infamously brutal group of Muslim insurgents just keeps getting worse. A new report says that they have now been married off to their kidnappers in mass weddings.

The 14 April abduction of the girls – students aged between 16 and 18 who were sitting a physics paper at their school, one of a handful in troubled Borno state that had opened specially for final exams – shocked a nation inured to violence during a five year-insurgency…

Reports of the mass marriage came from a group that meets at dawn each day not far from the charred remains of the school. The ragtag gathering of fathers, uncles, cousins and nephews pool money for fuel before venturing unarmed into the thick forest, or into border towns that the militants have terrorised for months.

On Sunday, the searchers were told that the students had been divided into at least three groups, according to farmers and villagers who had seen truckloads of girls moving around the area. One farmer, who spoke on condition of anonymity, said the insurgents had paid leaders dowries and fired celebratory gunshots for several minutes after conducting mass wedding ceremonies on Saturday and Sunday.

If this is not barbarism, we might as well retire that word from the English language.

    Can we please call this spade a spade?

    Nigerian girls to be raped following sham ‘marriage’ ceremonies.

    Barbarism seems a pretty weak word to cover this.

    Sometimes there aren’t enough words in English to describe how horrible something is.

    The group isn’t named but I assume it is Boko Harum.

    Of course this not barbarism.
    The worst forms of evil, like producing such a caricature of due process to justify the rape and enslavement of teenagers, exist only because civilized men dreamed them up.

    Isn’t abduction and marriage an acceptable form of Biblical marriage? Judges 21:19-21

    I wonder what will happen when the girls are rescued… Since they were ‘shammed’ married and presumably raped, will they be considered “damaged goods” by their family, friends, Nigerian society?

  6. Endorkened says

    …no, I think we can pretty safely say that marriage as envisioned by these guys is pretty darn barbaric. Primitive, backwards, indicative of a feudalistic or even tribalistic worldview, devoid of any progressive values. A “marriage” as defined by laws older than the concept of human rights–if that’s not barbaric, than nothing we do to each other is.

    Howardhershey @4:

    To be really acceptable, the abductors should have slaughtered all the males and non-virgin females in the abductees’ home towns first. Then William Lane Craig would be defending their actions as “godly.”

    I am totally disgusted and appalled, not only by these barbarous actions, but also by the total silence of marriage “protectors” who are so worried that same-sex couples are undermining the sanctity of the institution of marriage. What could be more unsanctified than the kidnapping and basic selling of human beings to be the sex slaves of men?

    What happened is indeed a barbarity, no need to argue about that.

    But another scandal is the inaction on the part of the Nigerian government. It appears as if they are just not interested. As long as the oil money keeps flowing why bother with rescueing a few expendables, seems to be the mindset there.

    It might not be inaction.

    It might be inability. Boko Harum is way out in their version of the boondocks, through a lot of unfriendly territory.

    The ragtag gathering of fathers, uncles, cousins and nephews pool money for fuel before venturing unarmed into the thick forest, or into border towns that the militants have terrorised for months.

    There might be an opportunity here. While Boko Harum was targeting the government and xians, there co-tribespeople didn’t much care. Now they are targeting their own tribes of Moslems.

    Instead of pooling gas money, these relatives could be given gasoline. And training and rifles. Waving a gun around and terrorizing people has a downside. It works until they shoot back.

    This is what happened in the Central African Republic. The Moslems came in and massacred a bunch of xians. The xians started massacring them back.

    Do we know that the anonymous farmer, or the person who talked to the press, is telling the truth? I say this not to defend the kidnappers, but because I hope like hell this didn’t happen.

    Raven, showing the world what a “civilized” man he is by presenting the vengeful ethnic cleansing that’s happening in Central Africa as a good thing that should be repeated everywhere.
