United Nations, May 10 - The UN Security Council Friday strongly condemned the abduction of nearly 300 schoolgirls in Nigeria and attacks by extremist Islamic group Boko Haram, threatening to take measures against the insurgents.

The members of the Security Council condemned in the strongest terms the terrorist attacks committed by Boko Haram that occurred in Gamboru Ngala, Nigeria on 5 May causing hundreds of deaths and injuries, Xinhua quoted the Security Council as saying in a statement read out here by the permanent representative of the Republic of Korea to the United Nations Oh Joon, who holds the rotating council presidency for May.

The council also expressed its profound outrage at and condemned in the strongest terms the abduction of 276 schoolgirls April 14 in Chibok, as well as the reported abduction May 5 of eight girls in Warabe, Joon said.

They demanded the immediate and unconditional release of all abducted girls still in captivity and further expressed their deep concern at statements made by the alleged leader of Boko Haram threatening to sell these girls as slaves.
