Dandal Kura Radio is Nigeria's first radio station dedicated to fighting the Boko Haram insurgency. Broadcasting in Hausa and Kanuri, it transmits three hours of programming daily to the nine million residents of the violence-wracked northeast Nigeria and Lake Chad region.
Nigeria will mark two years since more than 200 schoolgirls were kidnapped by the Islamist militant group Boko Haram. Aside from the few who managed to escape that night to date the girls have not been found. The town of Chibok has witnessed numerous attacks since the kidnappings, but apart from security what continues to anger locals is the lack of education for youngsters in this remote area of northeast Nigeria.
