You guys (Boko Haram) are trying so hard to convince everybody that you’re such badasses. But all you’ve done with this kidnapping is highlight who the real badasses are, the kids you kidnapped. Compared to a teenager who knows that her desire for an education could get her dragged into a snake infested jungle to be sold as a bribe to some demented, stick-chewing cartoon villain but still gets up and goes to class everyday, fully aware of that danger – compared to their courage – I’d say Boko Haram is a bunch of little girls. But, you know what? You don’t deserve that compliment.
There’s a writer for you, he said. Knows everything and at the same time he knows nothing. [narrator]It was my first inkling that he was a writer.
