A leading Nigerian rights group is urging the UN Security Council to impose sanctions on the Islamic extremists that abducted some 300 schoolgirls, saying concern and condemnation are not enough.
A statement on Sunday from the Socio-Economic Rights and Accountability Project says it is time for the council to “act decisively” and that the cost of inaction is “too high to contemplate.”
It comes as more experts are expected in Nigeria to help in the search, including US hostage negotiators.
Nigeria’s government belatedly accepted offers of help last week from the United States, Britain, France, China and Spain amid mounting national and international outrage at its failure to rescue 276 girls abducted from a northeastern school on April 15.
Fifty-three escaped. The militants are threatening to sell the girls into slavery.
