Nigeria's Dapchi Girls Defy Boko Haram, Return to School

The Dapchi girls' secondary school has reopened its doors, nearly three months after it was attacked and 109 students kidnapped by Boko Haram militants. The schoolgirls were later freed by their captors, but were warned not to return to school and pursue any education. Despite the relief of getting their children back, many of the parents are grappling with tough choices - do they send their daughters back to school, is it safe? VOA's Chika Oduah reports from Dapchi.
