Without doubt the lives of the Chibok girls will never again be the same. Despite the return of about 103 girls over the past 8 months, the interviews on Al Jazeera’s The Stream suggests that their lives are far from what we expect them to be. We are let in on the perspectives of a number of important subjects including Bukky Shonibare, a member of the Bring Back our Girls team and Peter Joseph, a relative of two of the Chibok Girls in shaping an understanding of the rehabilitation of the Chibok Girls and what is being done by the Nigerian government.

In the conversation that ensues we begin to understand a resentment from some of the parties involved in the modes being taken by the government and dig into the possibility of true freedom for the girls following their time as “celebrity captives.”
