Boko Haram: Journey from Evil shows that despite being mired in conflict and nearly a decade of suffering, not all is lost in Nigeria.
Hundreds of thousands of people have been displaced in Nigeria's northern Plateau State due to ethnic tensions. Currently 10 people are being killed weekly on average due to the attacks on villages across the state. No one has been arrested or tried for the killings.
This is a sequel to the interviews of young girls who were abducted by Boko Haram in Nigeria’s North East, how they lived with the terrorists in Northern Adamawa until they escaped or were rescued by the Nigerian forces.
Taraba state and most parts of the North is fast becoming a theatre of another face of terrorism; the killing of farmers by suspected herdsmen. World attention needs to be focused here too because the humanitarian crisis it breeds is unprecedented! This documentary tires to give voice to a carnage that seldom makes the news because the world seems preoccupied with the terror Boko Haram unleashes on people of the same region.
Fleeing from terrorist attacks in Adamawa's north is harrowing. This does not however stop people who are on the run from helping others to survive despite religious and ethnic differences. This is indeed the spirit of GLOBAL CITIZENSHIP and a departure from the usual stories that spell ethnic and religious strife as the reason for violence in Nigeria.
