The Reuters report reads:
The leader of Boko Haram on Monday threatened to sell more than 200 schoolgirls his Islamist militant group kidnapped in northeastern Nigeria last month.
Boko Haram militants stormed an all-girl secondary school in the village of Chibok, in Borno state, on April 14 and packed the teenagers, who had been taking exams, onto trucks and disappeared into a remote area along the border with Cameroon.
The attack shocked Nigerians, who have been growing accustomed to hearing about atrocities in an increasingly bloody five-year-old Islamist insurgency in the north.
“I abducted your girls. I will sell them in the market, by Allah,” Boko Haram leader Abubakar Shekau says in a video, chuckling as he stands in front of an armoured personnel carrier with two masked militants wielding AK-47s on either side of him.
“Allah has instructed me to sell them. They are his property and I will carry out his instructions,” he says.
The groups name translated means, “Western education is sinful”.
This Mother’s Day Sunday at 12:30pm there will be a gathering of solidarity at Hamilton city hall for the safe return of these young ladies.
On a world stage it may seem small but an inspirational group of women want to be heard.
And they will be, as they should be….

Where is Rob Ford? Apparently not in the U.S. He landed, turned around and came back.
