Nigerian School Girls

It is extraordinary how wanting to create a religious society in Northern Nigeria apparently requires an uneducated population and particularly uneducated girls.  According to an Amnesty International report released last October titled Keep away from schools or we'll kill you the right to education is under attack. Nigeria has Africa's largest economy, population and oil reserves.  You could reasonably expect such factors to require an education population.
However, more than 10.5 million children are out of the education system and only four percent of girls in northern Nigeria complete secondary school.  Yet again under the guise of revolution, terrorism and religion young women and girls are treated as slaves with men wanting to keep them uneducated and unable to look after themselves making them vulnerable to sexual servitude and rape.
