One of the girls who escaped from Boko Haram captivity has said that their peers are jealous of their new lease of life.
“People are jealous of us, and ask us: Why are you behaving like this? Are you not from Chibok background, and yet you are behaving like people who came back from America, We tell them that is why we are in school”, 18-year-old Glory said.
President of the American University of Nigeria, AUN, Margee Ensign, who offered scholarships to some of the girls, said “the Chibok girls arrived on campus in August 2014, most of them nervous and doubtful about resuming their education”.
She added that “they didn’t want to be out on their own” due to their fears.
