  4. According to the article of the week, the intention behind the kidnapping of school girls in Nigeria by Boko Haram is to sell them into slavery or forcing them into marriage by age 12.

  5. I believe that Boko Haram kidnapped those girls because he wants the government to release some of his people from prison. According to Fox News, he kidnapped about 300 girls. Others say that about 50-55 girls were able to escape. It also says that he if they don't release his people then he is planning to sell those girls to slavery. When the girls are coming back, what are they saying about what Boko Haram did to them?

  6. Boko Haram decided to kidnap the school girls in Nigeria to make a deal with the government. Boko Haram is the leader of many terrorists who want to release the school girls only if some of the terrorists in his group are released from prison. He kidnapped around 300 girls and about 53 of them were able to escape. He is threatening to sell them into marriage as slaves.

    What might the terrorists be planning since they want the prisoners freed? Were the girls who were kidnapped chosen randomly?

  9. According to LA Times,Boko Haram kidnapped for a possible reason besides trying to free their imprisoned men. The girls getting an education could lead to the change in their culture and hinder Boko Haram's ''repressive fundamentalism.'' They want the girls to marry at a young age and stay home like they traditionally would.
    Is the Nigerian government considering freeing the captured members of Boko Haram?

  11. The terrorists of the Nigerian countryside, Boko Haram, kidnapped schoolgirls from their dorms. The said they were there to protect them. When rounding up the girls in the courtyard, these girls realized who they were... and it was too late. The Boko Haram left a mark or terror, by burning books, destroying the dorms these girls were in... anything to get the government's attention (KTLA5 at 9pm).

    My question remains: Why does Boko Haram kidnap the girls for the release of their fellow Boko Haram Fighters?

  13. I think that the reason why the girls were kidnapped was so that the government releases the people from prison. Boko Haram and chief Abubakar Shekau released a video in which they threatened to sale the girls into slavery in the marketplace or force them to marry. This way they can worry the government and make them release the prisoners.

  19. The reason for this mass abduction of over 200+ school girls and the militant group taking credit the Boko Haram, say that all women don't need education, and should only be house wives and the man should be dominant. This radical groups intention is to make a trade and negotiate the hostages for their own men who were taken by the Nigerian government. My question is why does the Boko Haram militant's want a trade for a handful of their own, they clearly have leverage, and if they wanted to truly show their power why don't they broadcast the execution of the girls on Live T.V like the Taliban do in Iraq and Afghanistan, it hasn't stopped the Boko Haram group from massacring hundreds of people?

  64. It would seem that the most apparent reason for the kidnappings is for the terrorist organization Boka Haram to free some of their comrades. They have nearly 300 hostages so the government seems to have little to no leverage. Another reason could just be to sell them off or marry them, but, that seems like too much trouble to go through kidnapping so many girls for such simple motive. What exactly is the Nigerian government and its allies doing to help the girls rather than standing around wondering what the motive was?

  65. According to the AoW, Boko Haram has kidnapped girls. He has done this because he wants to be known and wants his fellow terrorist free from jail.
