Isha Sesay's Chibok Girls Book Has Nigeria Presidency Up In Arms

Former CNN journalist Isha Sesay's book Beneath the Tamarind Tree which is about the abduction of the Chibok schoolgirls in 2014, has been described by the government as a "misrepresentation that risks a negative judgment of history". The abduction of the 276 girls by Boko Haram sparked a global outcry and gave rise to the #BringBackOurGirls campaign.  Some have been rescued, but the government says 110 still remain captive.
