NIGERIA

Has­sana and Hus­saina, 14, are twin girls, who were ab­ducted at the age of 11. We heard a lot about the Chi­bok girls, but thousands of other girls were ab­ducted to be given to Boko Haram fight­ers. The abuse is so ex­treme, I never heard sto­ries as hor­rific as these girls de­scribed… Has­sana and Hus­saina suc­ceeded in their plan to es­cape. When they ar­rived at our local ‘Too Young to Wed’ or­gan­i­sa­tion, they had the clothes they were kid­napped with, we bought them clothes so they would not be seen as refugees…In Nigeria, when you go to a wed­ding, ev­ery­one will wear some­thing from the same fab­ric, it shows that you’re united. So, when we were do­ing the pic­tures, the girls wanted to wear the same things, ‘to be a fam­ily’, they said.
