The names of the schoolgirls kidnapped by Boko Haram gunmen from their dormitories on 15 April, 2014 have been released by Christian Association of Nigeria.

However, the list released by Evangelist Matthew Owojaiye, President/Founder of Old Time Revival Hour, Kaduna and immediate past Chairman of Northern States Christian and Elders Forum (NOCSEF), an affiliate of CAN, contained 180 names, contrary to reports by Borno Police Command that 276 girls were initially abducted and that 223 remain missing.

In the statement, Owojaiye urged prayers for the girls to be set free and lamented that the “daughters of Zion have been taken captive, to be treated as slaves and sold into marriage to unclean people. Abomination has been committed.​ Raise lamentation to High Heavens. What a shame on the Church of the Living God.”

“Every Christian home must raise a lamentation to heaven daily. Let God arise and defend his Name, Honour and Majesty. Let a 15 minutes cry to heaven be done in every church every time they gather. Oh God, Rend the Heavens and come down! Why should the people say where is our God?

Owojaiye’s statement also contained a demand for compensation.

“We make the following demands of the Federal Government whose duty it was to protect the innocent girls: A N50 million damages as trauma compensation to each girl.Arrangement should be made to take each of the girls to an overseas university on government scholarship by September 2014. Preparation for that must start now!
SS1 and SS2 girls in that school must be transferred to schools of their choice at a cost to be borne by the government. How can any girl feel safe in this kind of school where she lives in perpetual fear of attack?”
