Mutah was one of the 276 schoolgirls abducted by Boko Haram insurgents at Government Secondary School, Chibok, Borno State in 2014.

The 23-year-old graduated five years after the widely known mass abduction.

OrijoReporter gleaned the news of Mutah’s graduation from human rights lawyer, Mr. Emmanuel Ogebe, who financed her studies.

“The graduation of Palmatah is a highpoint of five years of toil and travail. Weeping may endure for a night but joy comes in the morning.

“She is an illustration of the millions of brilliant kids in Nigeria undiscovered for opportunity but for tragedy and even then until personal vision and intervention,” Ogbe said.
