July 17, 2014

The president of the Catholic Bishops’ Conference of Nigeria has called upon the nation’s government to make the release of 200 kidnapped schoolgirls an urgent priority, according to the Catholic Information Service for Africa.

Members of the Islamist terrorist organization Boko Haram kidnapped the girls on April 15.

“Promises are not enough, we just want to see concrete action and the fruit of whatever the government is doing along with the international community,” said Archbishop Ignatius Kaigama of Jos.
