Inspire’s co-director Sara Khan has commented on reports that further women have been abducted by Boko Haram in the north-eastern Adamawa state of Nigeria:

“Following reports of a truce and the proposed release of the schoolgirls it is unbelievable that these criminals have still not handed over these young women but the fact that they have reportedly abducted even more women and girls is truly shocking. The majority of them have been missing from their families for over six months and must be facing the most terrifying of situations. It just reaffirms the disgusting, twisted ideologies and barbaric behaviour that Boko Haram are capable of, echoed in the treatment of women by other groups like ISIS. These girls are being robbed of their innocence not to mention their dignity and respect. We urge all women in the UK to join us in showing their condemnation for groups like these by using the hashtag #makingastand and to actively challenge extremists who are a direct threat to women and their rights.”
