The Chibok Girls
The Boko Haram Kidnappings and Islamist Militancy in Nigeria
by Helon Habila
Columbia Global Reports
Politics, Nonfiction (Adult)
Pub Date  05 Dec 2016
I am voluntarily reviewing a copy of The Chibok Girls through the publisher and Netgalley.
In this book we learn more about the 267 girls kidnapped from the Chibok Secondary School in Northern Nigeria and how they were kidnapped by the Boko Haram, the world’s deadliest terrorist group.
The author a well known Nigerian Novelist, gained access to some of the families of the Kidnapped girls and conducted interviews, to put this book together.  It points out the very real danger that many Nigerians face, when they have to deal with extremist views.
I give The Chibok Girls five out of five stars
Happy Reading.
