Last year, in the north of Nigeria, in Chibok, Boko Haram kidnapped 200 high school students. The director of the Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights (OHCHR), Raad Zeid al Hussein said in an interview, released today on the Nigerian newspaper “This Day”, that he fears that they may have been killed by the radical terrorists.

During the interview, the director of OHCHR said he was pessimistic about the fate of the girls, and he added that they might be in Bama, near the borders of Cameroon. In the city – that the Caliphate ruled for months before the army won over – many corpses of girls were found, but the number is not clear yet.

Hussein stated that probably the girls were forced to marry their kidnappers and then brutally killed. moreover, a UN report states that in Borno, in the northern part of the country, Nigerian soldiers found a mass grave with corpses of young girls.

The tragic news of the girls kidnapped in Chibok echoed internationally last year, and a video showing their faces was spread. The hashtag #BringBackOurGirls brought the attention on radical Muslims in Nigeria.
