Amnesty International Claims Nigerian Armed Forces Knew About Chibok Kidnapping Before It Happened

share on:

Amnesty International has claimed that Nigerian authorities had a 4-hour notice on the abduction of over 200 girls at a secondary school in Chibok, but failed to take any preventive measures.

The London-based human rights group, after verifying the information with “credible sources,” said Nigerian security forces knew of the attack four hours before Boko Haram struck.

“The fact that Nigerian security forces knew about Boko Haram’s impending raid, but failed to take the immediate action needed to stop it, will only amplify the national and international outcry at this horrific crime,” Netsanet Belay, Amnesty International’s Africa director, research and advocacy, said today in a statement.
