Jan 14, 2015 – Baga Massacre: Angelina Jolie Blasts Nigerian Government, Says Boko Haram Getting Away With Murder Because Of Impunity
Hollywood Actress Says Boko Haram Is Thriving Under Lawlessness, Condemns Attack On Children & Women
Hollywood superstar Angelina Jolie has spoken for the first time this year over the increased Boko Haram attacks in Northern Nigeria.
In a statement released on Tuesday, Jolie condemned the mass murder and rape of women and children. She also claimed that the terrorists are thriving under lawlessness.
The statement reads:
“Each new crime committed by Boko Haram exceeds the last in brutality. This is a direct consequence of the environment of total impunity in which Boko Haram operates. Every time they get away with mass murder, rape and the enslavement of women and children, they are emboldened.”
Jolie begged the international community to help Nigeria in bringing the terrorists to justice.
Angelia’s statement came days after over 2000 civilians died in the most deadly attack launched by Boko Haram terrorists in Baga area of Borno State.
