US President Donald Trump and his daughter, Ivanka, on Tuesday met with two freed Chibok girls, Joy Bishara and Lydia Pogu at the White House.
Bishara, 20, and Pogu, 19 were among 57 girls who escaped from Boko Haram in Borno by jumping off the back of a truck in 2014.
The girls were among the 276 students who were abducted by Boko Haram terrorists from the Government Secondary School in Chibok, Borno State in 2014.

Although the White House did not release a statement regarding the Chibok girls’ visit, a photograph was posted to the official White House website and Twitter page on Wednesday, showing Mr. Trump, along with his daughter posing with two Chibok girls.
It is understood that the two Chibok girls relocated to Virginia after regaining their freedom.
It was also gathered that they recently graduated from Canyonville Christian Academy in Virginia and will attend Southeastern University in Florida at the start of the next academic session.
With the assistance of the Jubilee Campaign, a human rights group in Virginia, the pair relocated to the United States in August 2014, it was learnt.
“It’s a wonderful school, I enjoyed my senior year because of the wonderful combination of different countries,” said Bishara on her Facebook page.
The pair will attend Southeastern University on a full scholarship at the beginning of the upcoming school year.
