United Nations will send an envoy to Nigeria to offer assistance following the abduction of more than two hundred schoolgirls.

The UN spokesman in a statement said Secretary General Ban Ki-moon has decided to dispatch Special

Representative for West Africa to Abuja to discuss ways of helping Nigerian authorities to locate the kidnapped girls.

The abduction of girls by Boko Haram in northeastern Borno state has triggered an international outcry.

US, British and French experts have already arrived to help trace the schoolgirls, while around ten army search teams are searching the region.
