Chibok Students Describe Daring Escape
When terrorist organization Boko Haram kidnapped 276 students six months ago, the focus was on the terrorists and the international response. The stories of the young women themselves got lost in the outcry, and survivors’ accounts have not been published, until now. Amid paranoia over the Boko Haram threat, the principal and local soldiers told the girls that in the event of an attack, they should stay put rather than run. Those who broke that rule have begun to tell their stories; the fate of those who obeyed it is still unknown.
