Beauty therapist, Modupe Ozolua has said that the Boko Haram insurgency is bigger than most people think.

She also said that the terrorist sect has committed worse atrocities than the abduction of the Chibok girls.

According to the Associated Press, Ozolua is taking a step toward raising awareness and money to assist displaced victims of Boko Haram at her inaugural "Rise Above Terror" African Art Gala at the Besharat Gallery on Saturday in Atlanta.

“When people hear about Boko Haram, you think about 'Bring Back Our Girls' only, but it's much bigger than that. Figures are being thrown around about how many people are being killed. It's bigger than that,” she said.

“There are millions of people who have survived these attacks, seeing their families killed in front of them. Their lives are completely traumatized. Nobody is giving much attention to them. Our focus is on them. They should be assisted," she added.

Ozolua has been bringing aid to victims in Africa through her non-profit foundation, Empower 54, since 2003.
