According to a civil rights group, the 200 Nigerian schoolgirls that were kidnapped are now being forced to marry members of the Boko Haram.
Halite Aliyu, spokesperson for the Borno-Yobe People’s Forum said that life for northeast Nigerians “has become nasty, short and brutish. We are living in a state of anarchy.”
Some have remained in Nigeria while others have been transported to Chad and Cameroon. The specific whereabouts of the young girls are still unknown.
