From Chibok, a marginalized and obscure village in Borno State, these girls are now taking photo with the most powerful man in the world in the White House. The terrorist group, Boko Haram’s intention was to destroy them and even though they succeeded in kidnapping over 200 of them of which over 100 are still in the hands of these criminal, these are the lucky and fortunate ones. Thank to the #BringBackOurGirls protesters for standing up and insisting that the terrorists would not win. And they have lost this one. These ones are in school and are getting the best education in the world.
This is how the world report their story.
Quartz news site points out US President Donald Trump is considering cutting aid in the same week he met two women who were kidnapped by the Nigerian Islamist militants Boko Haram.
It adds that the White House still doesn’t appear to have given any more information about Mr Trump’s meeting with Joy Bishara and Lydia Pogu.
It says the only thing the White House said about the visit is when they published this photo on the White House Facebook page, saying it was “photo of the day” on 28 June:
People Magazine published a profile of Ms Bishara and Ms Pogu earlier this month saying they were among a few who managed to escape on the night of the kidnapping and were brought to the US in August of 2014 to attend a Christian boarding school.
