As we celebrate the release of 82 Chibok girls after three years, Jackson Ude on Saturday, met Mercy and Patience, who were among the lucky few that jumped out of the moving truck carrying over 200 schoolgirls, who were kidnapped by Boko Haram terrorists on April 14th, 2014.
Both started school this year at Bronx Community College in the U.S under a project called Education Must Continue Initiative.

Speaking earlier this year at the 5th annual Global Education and Skills Forum held in Dubai, one of the girls described how she jumped out of the moving truck that fateful night.

“What happened that night was terrible. We were writing our final exams. They came to our school,dressed in military uniforms, so we didn’t know they were Boko Haram. They wanted us to get in the truck and told us they were going to protect us. But they started shooting.

All the teachers ran away. I thought I was going to die. They came with a very long truck and loaded all of the food and the girls. As we moved deeper into a forest, some of the girls were jumping out of the truck. I turned to my friend and told her her we should jump now.

We jumped and disappeared into the forest, but my friend hurt her ankle and couldn’t walk. We met a shepherd who helped us with his bycycle. And then a man in a motorcycle took us home.”
