Photos: Two years after Boko Haram, Chibok schools resume activities

This is uplifting news. There has been so much devastation in Chibok, where some 214 girls were abducted from, two years ago.

Schools have been shut down for safety reasons. They have now been reopened. 

The pictures here are from the Junior Day Secondary School in Chibok, Borno State.

According to a Femi Owolabi who shared these images on social media,

:Sadly, however, after a series of interaction with these kids, I noticed how academically poor they had become.

"Some of them cannot even write their names correctly again," one of the teachers, regrettably, told me. "They've been out of school for years, and most of them have been on the farm with their parents," he added.

"The students whose schools have been opened couldn't hide their excitement as they told me they've always looked forward to returning to school.

"With this development, ladies and gentlemen, guests and friends, permit me to authoritatively say that we are winning the war!

"My reaction when I got to the school and saw it opened? To hell with Boko Boko, our kids are back in school!"
