ARCHBISHOP JUSTIN WELBY CONDEMNS ABDUCTION OF NIGERIAN SCHOOLGIRLS

Press Release
Lambeth Palace
May 7, 2014

The Archbishop of Canterbury Justin Welby today condemned the abduction of over 200 Nigerian schoolgirls from their boarding school three weeks ago, and has asked that people join him in praying for their safe release.

Archbishop Justin said:

“This is an atrocious and inexcusable act and my prayers and thoughts go out to the young people and their families at this upsetting time. I appeal to those who have taken these schoolgirls to release them immediately and unharmed. This is in a part of Nigeria I have visited and in a country whose people are close to my heart. Let your hearts be open in compassion and mercy to those who have suffered so much.”
