The couple who had previously been engaged before getting separated by the war, reunited at the Cameroonian camp.
Hauna had fled to Cameroon while Ibrahim who was keen on his education stayed back to complete his final exams.
Their reunion was emotional and in Ibrahim’s words…
“It wasn’t easy for me to be separated from the one I love. But I had to be strong to pull myself together because I knew the separation was because of the Boko Haram attacks. So I had no option. The very first day we met in the camp, I could not resist her. I had to hold her to my cheek. Really it was a great moment that day. Heaven was very close to me that day
Hauna’s unhappiness and worries were put to rest when they reunited.
The married couple have plans to start their own family even without any steady means of income and challenges that await them while living in the refugee camp.
This goes to show that hope and love can still shine through during times of strife. However, there are thousands of other people who may never see their loved ones again. We hope the Boko Haram insurgency is completely eradicated soonest.
