The fascinating story of Aisha Bakari Gombi, the woman hunting down Boko Haram in Nigeria – Face2Face Africa

In a photo story newly published by Al Jazeera, we learn about Aisha Bakari Gombi, a “Queen Hunter” among a group of hunters defending their community against the group. She was given the title “Queen Hunter” for her bravery on the battlefield. Gombi knows the Sambisa Forest, where Boko Haram has set up camps, like the back of her hand. It is where she went hunting antelopes and water buffalo with her father as a child. Aisha also learned about medicinal plants from her father, a valuable skill that has earned her the respect of her fellow hunters.
