The Norwegian government has decided to allocate 1.6 million USD (10 Million Norwegian Krone) to promote safe schooling in the Northern part of Nigeria and to help the communities affected by the abductions. The Norwegian Minister of Foreign affairs, Mr Børge Brende said Norway will also consider providing humanitarian assistance for the refugees and internally displayed people in the area.
Over 200 school girls were abducted at the Chibok Secondary school in Borno, the Northern part of Nigeria by the terrorist group Boko Haram over two months ago. The Nigerian government has not been able to rescue the girls from their abductors in spite of the great deal of attention it has received across the world.
