The only Chibook schoolgirls to escape from the Boko Haram after being captured are the four who got away during the botched goodwill exchange in late August.  These girls reported back that they were raped every day.  Since the latest official count of missing girls is 219 (the unofficial count is higher due to the fact that some parents are afraid to come forward and say their children are missing) and the girls have been missing 142 days as of this artwork,  then if you do the math – which they don’t want girls doing because that requires education – the total number of  rapes to date is 31,098.  That number is in white and goes up to 31,099.
