100 Nigerian Girls Abducted By Boko Haram Returned To Village - blogged by @worldwidekeege ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The tragic horror that America witnessed almost 4 years ago has relived itself in Nigeria but this time the narrative paints a different ending. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The Islamic extremist group Boko Haram which stands for “Western education is forbidden” hit hard again by abducting 110 girls from a Nigerian school in the city of Dapchi. The same group took over 300 girls from a school in Chibok 4 years ago. The group’s reason for kidnapping the girls is to teach them Islam and show them why they shouldn’t practice Western education, instead, they should be married off. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ They make the girls live in forests and migrate from place to place running from officials looking to rescue them. All of the girls from the Chibok kidnapping years ago have not been returned but almost 100 of the Dapchi students were returned to their city early Wednesday morning. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ As parents and loved ones watched them walk into town, hearts were overjoyed with compassion for what the young ladies had gone through for over a month while being held captive. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Nigerian officials were highly criticized for not preventing the attack and not doing enough in their rescue efforts to bring the girls home sooner. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Hopefully, we can see more efforts for them in the future and maybe the rest of the Chibok girls will be released as well.
