Nigerian Girl Who Escaped Boko Haram Abduction Aches for Schoolmates

ABUJA, Nigeria (MS, TAB) — An 18-year-old high school student — one of more than 300 girls kidnapped by Boko Haram on April 15 — escaped with her life and is deeply troubled by the captivity of her friends and schoolmates.
Patience, a member of the Church of the Brethren in Nigeria, was one of the 57 who escaped after Boko Haram forced the girls onto trucks at gunpoint.
