Report: Nigeria Islamist Group Seizing Christian Women As Slaves

Nigerian terrorist group Boko Haram has been kidnapping Christian women from rural areas and forcing them to convert under threats of death, Mail & Guardian reports. The women are then kept as slaves and child brides - and forced to help the terrorists kill innocent Nigerians. Mail & Guardian brings the story of Hajja, now 19, who was forced to serve as the slave of a guerrilla unit for 3 months. Hajja recounts being forced to cook, clean, read from Islamic texts - and be the "bait" for the terrorists to lure innocent Nigerian men to their deaths.
