Debbie and Grace, two Chibok girls who escaped from Boko Haram in 2014 have graduated from a high school in Washington DC, USA.
The two girls graduated after completing junior year (11th grade) and senior year (12th grade) at a private international school.
Debbie and Grace were among 57 girls who escaped from the terrorists after they abducted almost 300 of them in April 2014.
Debbie and Grace had escaped after they were driven to Sambisa forest with the terrorists pursuing hotly.
The two schoolgirls were among a dozen Nigerian girls sponsored by schools abroad by an NGO.
By this graduation, Debbie and Grace became the first escaped Chibok girls to graduate from an American high school with diplomas after completing and meeting academic standards.
Several other girls had dropped out of EMC’s school abroad project after managing to graduate from middle school (8th grade) last year and are now attempting to take the GED exam (external GCE equivalent).
