Pregnant Boko Haram Victim Refuses to Abort Unborn Child Despite Threats (Photos)

Um Haleema was just 16 years old when she was kidnapped. Her first few months in captivity, at the hands of militant group Boko Haram, were enough to break anyone's spirit -- let alone that of a teenage girl so far from home.

During her captivity, Um Haleema was forced to watch men, women and children slaughtered. She was forced into marriage. Forced to wait on a "husband" she hated. But while she watched, she says

#ShortStoryNight: ENOUGH is ENOUGH!

Story written by TILB reader Carina Jacob

"I go kill you today, your matter don tire me". Those were the words coming out from the mouth of papa Efe repeatedly. I am certain he was doing the same thing he did to his wife almost every night.

I thought that was the beginning of the end of the All Progressives Congress. But the African Peoples Congress didn’t have the Lion of Bourdillon leading its charge, so it lost. 
After winning the acronym war, APC was faced with another battle of selecting interim executives, with the merging political parties (Action Congress of Nigeria, All Nigeria
