Two Chibok Girls graduate from US University

Seven years after fleeing from the grasp of Islamic terrorist group, Boko Haram, two ex-students of Government Girls Secondary School, Chibok, have graduated from a university in the United States.

Joy Bishara and Lydia Pogu, two of the Chibok girls who were abducted from their school dormitories in 2014 graduated from Southeastern University.

The two victims were fortunate to have jumped off the truck during the infamous abduction of 276 girls abducted by the insurgent group on April 14, 2014, in Chibok, Borno state.

According to SaharaReporters, Bishara bagged a degree in social work while Pogu earned a degree in legal studies.

“I remember thinking about what my mum would do at that moment then I prayed. I just remembered a voice in my head saying ‘jump out’. I knew I was going to die either way. I chose to die and that was how I jumped out,” Bishara recounted.

Speaking on her success seven years after, she added: “It was awesome, I felt great. I remember being told that I wasn’t going to be able to finish high school; that I was dumb. I never gave up or listened to all the negative talks. It was exciting to walk on that stage after being told ‘you can’t do it’.

“It was exciting to walk on that stage after being told you can’t do it.”

In the same vein, Pogu said, “I’m trying to get my master’s in human services and going back to law school when I’m done with my master’s.”
