Meet Aisha Bakari Gombi, one of the few female volunteer recruits that’s helping the Nigerian Army fight Boko Haram.Thousands of hunters are helping to win the war against Boko Haram in Borno State, but there are only a handful of women involved.
The 38-year-old was born and brought up in an area close to Sambisa forest, where the Boko Haram insurgents now operate from.Even though the Army, with the help of the Volunteers, have sacked Sambisa Forest, the insurgents are now regrouping.
Aisha used to hunt antelopes with her grandfather, but now she leads a team of 15-20 male volunteers.The hunters under Commander Aisha’s team have been able to rescue a good number of Boko Haram captives and neutrali
se the insurgents.
She is one fierce woman!
