Donald Trump hosts two Chibok girls


The U.S. President, Donald Trump, and his daughter, Ivanka, met with two Chibok girls, Joy Bishara and Lydia Pogu on June 27 at the White House.

Bishara, 20, and Pogu, 19 were among 57 girls who escaped from Boko Haram in Borno by jumping off the back of a truck in 2014. The 57 were among over 270 kidnapped from their secondarily school in Chibok, Borno State on April 14, 2014.

The incident sparked global outrage with a campaign hashtag of #bringbackourgirls calling for rescue of the girls.

Majority of the girls have since been freed by the terror group in prisoner swaps with the Nigerian government, although dozens still remain with the Boko Haram.

With the assistance of the Jubilee Campaign, a human rights group in Virginia, the pair relocated to the United States in August 2014. They then transferred to Canyonville Christian Academy in the state of Oregon, where they graduated.

“It’s a wonderful school, I enjoyed my senior year because of the wonderful combination of different countries,” said Bishara on her Facebook page.

The pair will attend Southeastern University on a full scholarship at the beginning of the upcoming school year.

        What a troubled mind you have ! You have moved from “no girl was missing” to ” present Government that were part and parcel of Boko haram” to praying for the remaining girls to be released. Olodo, stick to your agbero job.

  • 0tile

    Unscrupulous politicians all over the world have made big political
    capital out of Chibok girls. God in heaven knows how these girls are
    used by politicians and terrorists.

  • George

    Some animals now praising Trump just because his high drug leads him to fake chibok girls stories that never existed.

    Shameful muslims.
