Recall that the terrorists kidnapped a total of 276 female students from the school but some of them escaped while they were being carted away.

Bishara and her cousin, Lydia Pogu were among the 57 schoolgirls who jumped from the trucks in which they were being transported.

Subsequently, the Nigerian Armed Forces rescued some of the victims from the insurgents’ custody, but over 100 students are still missing nine years after their abduction.

Following their escape, Bishara and Pogu relocated to the United States, where they both obtained a degree from Southeastern University in 2021.

Bishara graduated with a degree in social work while Pogu has a degree in legal studies.

They both attended Canyonville Christian Academy, Oregon where they continued their secondary school education.

They graduated from the school in February 2017.
