The same morning – April 15, seven years ago – he woke to hear his daughter had been abducted from her school dormitory at night.

This came on the seventh anniversary of the kidnap of 276 girls, even as global news headlined an attack on a humanitarian hub in the same state from which the schoolgirls disappeared into the Sambisa Forest on the night of April 14, 2014. 112 of them remain un-accounted for.
