Baird Sickened by Nigerian Abductions


(MENAFNEditorial) OTTAWA Canada December 19 2014/African Press Organization (APO)/ -- Foreign Affairs Minister John Baird today issued the following statement in reaction to reports that terrorists killed at least 30 and kidnapped at least 100 women and girls from the town of Gumsuri in northern Nigeria on December 14 2014:

'I was sickened by the news of another kidnapping of a large number of women and girls by suspected Boko Haram terrorists in Nigeria. This is the latest in a series of odious crimes by this repugnant terrorist group which preys on the innocent and defenceless.

'On behalf of all Canadians I offer my sincere condolences to the families and friends of those killed and express my heartfelt desire for the early and safe return of those who were kidnapped.

'This act will only serve to unite Nigerians and the international community in the fight against international terrorism. We call on the Government of Nigeria to do all they can to reunite these women and girls with their loved ones.'
