Dignitaries expected at the event include the Governor of Borno State, Babagana Zulum; his Yobe counterpart, Mai Mala Buni; Minister of State for Industry, Trade and Investment, Maryam Katagum; and the First Lady of Kaduna State, Hadiza Isma-El-Rufai
Others are all the Senators and House of Representatives members from the North-east.
Even though it is fictional, events similar to the ones in the book have occurred in the past or are occurring in the present.
“More awareness needs to be created on the insurgency because the people experiencing it are more than just the number of victims you read about in the media.
