The Boko Haram leader, Abubakar Shekau on Monday, May 5, 2014 claimed responsibility for the abduction of 300 girls of the Government Secondary School, Chibok in Borno state on April 14, 2014.
After three weeks of being held captive, the sect is alleged to have begun the sales of these girls in human sex market in Cameroon and Chad, where the children are forcefully married and sexually abused.
The search for the girls has intensified with President Goodluck Jonathan accepting President Obama’s offer to help in the search and rescue of the Chibok girls.

According to reports by Nigerian Standard, Borno state governor, Kashim Shettima, allegedly entered into an oath with Shekau to continually shield Boko Haram members in face of flagrant violation of laws of Federal Republic. An oath which he inherited from his predecessor, Ali Modu Sheriff.
The source reports that the former Borno governor, Sheriff, who is a godfather of the Islamic extremist sect, already assured the sect that Shettima would always protect the ‘deadly sect’s interest anytime, any day’.
Shettima is now afraid that if he turns against Boko Haram, members of his family may be kidnapped, bombed or wiped off.
Nigeria Standard exclusively reported that “when Sheriff was in power, 60 percent of his monthly security vote was allegedly diverted to fund Boko Haram which the Sect used in purchasing dangerous ammunition and building armories in Nyanya, Abuja, Cameroon and Chad. This is why the only statement ever quoted to have been issued by Sherriff was done by one of the former Governor’s aides.”
