“God instructed me to sell them, they are his properties”

The BBC has more on the enslavement in Nigeria.

In the video, Abubakar Shekau said the girls should not have been in school in the first place, but rather should get married.

“God instructed me to sell them, they are his properties and I will carry out his instructions,” he said.

Yes that sums it right up, doesn’t it – girls are inferior beings, therefore they should not be in school, they should be enslaved in “marriage” because that’s all that inferior beings are good for.

Meanwhile, a woman who helped organise protests over the abduction was detained and later released.

Naomi Mutah was taken to a police station after a meeting called by First Lady Patience Jonathan.

Mrs Jonathan reportedly felt slighted that the girls’ mothers had sent Ms Mutah to the meeting instead of going themselves.

Mrs Jonathan is seen as a politically powerful figure in Nigeria but has no constitutional power to order arrests.

Ms Mutah, a representative of the Chibok community, organised a protest last week outside parliament in Abuja.

Wow, that’s some heavy-duty self-absorption – for Patience Jonathan to be more worried about her own importance than the issue that Naomi Mutah was there to discuss with her.

    Such modesty! All he’s doing is humbly carrying out god’s instructions and selling the girls.

    Hey! It’s a dirty job, but you know someone’s got to do it!

    And I somehow suspect that ‘god’ won’t get a dime from this transaction.

    God let him have the gun with which he enforces his will upon the people around him, therefore everything that he does is God’s will.

  3. Omar Puhleez says

    God by Abubakar Shekau’s own admission is a weakling. He is either too weak or too timid to put his own will into effect in this benighted, shambolic country called Nigeria.
    No wonder God is useless at the harder tasks, like ending poverty and ignorance.
