Photos: Six Years After Abduction Of Schoolgirls WAEC Conducts Exams In Chibok
The West African Examination Council (WAEC) has conducted the 2020 Senior School Certificate Examination (SSCE), in Chibok Local Government, Borno State, the first time since the abduction of over 200 schoolgirls in the area by Boko Haram insurgents, six years ago.
The 7 Division, Nigerian Army, disclosed this on Thursday.
Schools in the local government were closed by the Federal Government following the abduction of the girls from the Government Girls’ Secondary School Chibok on April 14, 2014.
Six years after the incident which led to the formation of the Bring Back Our Girls (BBOG) advocacy group, the school has now been converted into a mixed school (for boys and girls).
Out of the 219 schoolgirls abducted by the insurgents, 107 have regained freedom after various rescue efforts and mediated negotiations between the Federal Government and the terrorists.
