FBI Agents Ready to Be Deployed to Nigeria to Help Find 276 Teenage Girls Abducted from Nigerian School

If help is requested, FBI agents may be deployed to Nigeria to help search for 276 teenage girls abducted from a school, ABC News reports. The news comes after the leader of Boko Haram, an African Islamist group, pledged to sell the girls as slaves.

“God has commanded me to sell them,” the leader, Abubakar Shekau, said.

Critics of the group derided Shekau as an attention-seeker with a “rowdy, unemployed, African youth who are looking for a target for their grievances and they’re lashing out at anyone available.”

The girls, ages 16 to 18, who were studying for final exams, were kidnapped at the Government Girls Secondary School in Chibok, Nigeria on April 15.

“Last week, the attorney general told U.S. intelligence agencies to prepare a report for him on the kidnapping of the 300 girls in Nigeria and also requested an assessment of Boko Haram, the militant group behind the kidnapping,” a government official told ABC News.

The U.S. is waiting to hear back on the need for U.S. help.

Three hours of mob violence in downtown Louisville last month was perpetuated by a gang of middle school students who call themselves “Young ‘N Off that,” or YNO.

Louisville Courier-Journal reports that the students are “armed in a major way” and belong to several different schools after it started at Frost Middle School.

The gang of students showed up to Waterfront Park on March 22 to fight another local gang, Trill Young Savages, or TYS, according to an FBI memo.

“TYS members apparently didn’t show, which is when the ‘mob violence’ ensued,” the agent wrote.

The teens committed at least 20 robberies assaults and acts of vandalism.
