The Abduction

After schools in the Borno state had been closed since March 18 due to terrorism threats in the conflict-stricken region, students and staff at the Chibok Girls Secondary School faced their worst fears on their first day back. In the early morning hours of Tuesday, April 15, after arriving to the school to take a physics test, 276 girls were abducted, with 53 managing to escape.
