    They’re not girls anymore people. Most are dead and married with children to their former captors.

    Yes morre than a hundred of the Chibok Christian School girls are still missing as at today 22nd August 2019! Those that say the story is fake are the liars! Thanks for bringing this issue to the front burner again! After the Chibok Girls episode another Christian School girl was abducted still by the Boko Haram together with others at the Girls Science Secondary School Dapchi in Yobe State Nigeria in 2017! While the Government secured the release of the others the Christian Girl by name Leah Sharibu was not released because she refused to denounce her Christian faith and belief in The Lord Jesus Christ and is still in captivity hopefully alive!!! The Muslims will use the taqqiya principle of deceit and lying to cover up their unwillingness to bring the rest of the girls back! International Independent Organisations should please help locate where the girls are and bring them back!!!

    Lol . What they do now is put anyone in prison. I have never heard abt this book before. The Nigerian government probably called you to shut the whole story. They give no shit abt no one and anyone that speaks up recently ends up in prison. All people do is just rant on social media.
