(AP) – Nigerian public schools are reopening in Borno state, in the country’s northeast, where the military has pushed Boko Haram extremists from many cities and towns, said a military official. Many schools have been closed for more than two years in areas of Borno state that had been controlled by Boko Haram, which means “Western education is sinful.” A three-month multinational offensive earlier this year drove Boko Haram out of towns including Gwoza which had been headquarters of what the group called its Islamic caliphate.
