Factual Pursuit of Truth for Progress

Seven years after their abduction by Boko Haram terrorists in 2014, two former students of the Government Girls Secondary School, Chibok, Borno State have graduated from the Southeastern University, Florida, US.

Joy Bishara and Lydia Pogu we’re among 276 female students captured by the terrorists but scaped while being transported by their abductors.

The duo were later given scholarships by the United States Government, and they graduated on April 30.

While Bishara earned a degree in social work, Pogu bagged a degree in legal studies.

The two girls, during an interview on ABC Good Morning America, said they had vowed never to return to school due to the insecurity in the northeast.

The ladies expressed excitement about their degrees, saying they hoped to further their studies.

The TV station later announced a donation of $5,000 gift cards for each of the girls to go on a shopping spree.

About 112 Chibok schoolgirls are still in Boko Haram custody after the Federal Government negotiated the release of some of them.
