Being Freed Doesn't End the Suffering for the Kidnapped Girls of Boko Haram

For them, even the process of being freed was devastating, violent and sometimes resulted in the death of some of the captives during the melee.

Now that they are free, they are further restricted-to special camps run by the Nigerian army-and ostracized from society.

Perhaps worst of all, their present treatment makes a certain amount of sense, because they had been brainwashed into Boko Haram's ways at an early age and there is the possibility that a recent uptick in the number of female suicide bombers in Nigeria may be at the hands of some of the ex-Boko-Haram hostages. So the fear is that it's very difficult to tell who among the ex-hostages would be the enemy and who would not.

It's a terrible story of human suffering at the hands of a malignant force (Islamic terrorism of the Nigerian variety), and the efforts to alleviate the situation for the girls/women have been relatively futile
