HBO To Release Documentary About Chibok Girls
In 2014, Boko Haram kidnapped 276 girls from their school in Chibok, Borno State, and kept them in Sambisa forest for more than 3 years.
For those three years, the hashtag #BringBackOurGirls became a global campaign that featured everyone including Michelle Obama and Malala Yousafzai.
Tuesday, May 8 2018 marked the the one year anniversary of the release of 82 of the Nigerian schoolgirls - the largest number released at once.
In total, 176 girls have been reportedly rescued, but about 100 girls are still in captivity.
Now a documentary by popular American network HBO, titled Stolen Daughters: Kidnapped By Boko Haram, will give viewers a look at the current lives of the freed girls, who were taken to a secret government safe house in the capital of Abuja upon their release.
The film will showcase how the young women are coping and adjusting to life after their captivity, and how the Nigerian government is dealing with their return to society.
No official release date has been given for the release of Stolen Daughters: Kidnapped By Boko Haram, but the documentary is expected to premiere later this year.
