Nigeria school girl tells House of Lords of brutal Boko Haram attack

A Nigerian schoolgirl will tell the House of Lords today of her terrifying ordeal during one of the biggest ever mass abductions carried out by the Boko Haram terrorist sect. 

Victoria Yohanna, 15, was one of more than 400 people taken prisoner during an attack by a Boko Haram raiding party on the north-east Nigerian town of Baga on the shores of Lake Chad in January.

Their captors ordered them to convert to Islam on pain of death, and tried to marry them off as bush-wives to Boko Haram fighters.
