Fatima Ahmad Gashuwa was born on 25th of August, 1995. She is the only daughter to her mother, Malama Maryam Sani. She attended Buks International School Zaria, for her Nursery and Primary School studies, from 2000 to 2007.

 She attended Hallmark International School Zaria, for her Junior Secondary School studies, from 2007 to 2010. For her Senior Secondary Studies, she attended Federal Government Girls College Zaria, from 2010 to 2013. She is presently a student of Usman Danfodio University Sokoto (UDUS). Fatima does not let life circumstances keep her down, she continue to keep a positive outlook despite the cruelty of others.

Fatima Ahmad is emotionally stable, she don’t easily becomes angry or mad at people. She is a girl who is self-aware and recognizes her own flaws. She always strives to make herself better, she is someone that is comfortable in her own conditions. She is someone that doesn’t let her insecurities stand in the way of her happiness, she knows that it’s okay to have insecurities but it’s not okay to give those insecurities the power to eat away at her. Fatima is someone who knows how to choose her struggles wisely, she is someone that knows how to apologize for her mistakes. Fatima is someone who can take a compliment graciously. She is humble in her achievements, she wears her heart on her sleeve. Fatima has a thirst for knowledge, she sees beauty in the world around her and constantly strives to learn more about it. She knows how to forgive, she knows how to gracefully accept an apology, when she accepts an apology, she doesn’t bring the issue up again at a future time in an unrelated issue, she sticks to her words. Fatima does every thing within her power not to break a promise. She is a realistic girl that have reasonable standards and doesn’t compromise for them.

Fatima Ahmad Gashuwa was among the abducted girls in Zaria, when the Nigerian Army raid a planned attack against the Islamic Movement in Nigeria on the 12th of December, 2015. She called me and confirmed that she had a bruise of bullet on her face and the army were coming closer to her. One of the survivors of the carnage that was shot in her private part revealed that they were arrested and taken to Basawa Barrack together, but her whereabout is still unknown. It is very afflict that after killing 1000+ defenseless Muslims, the Nigerian Army abducted more than 50 girls and kept them incommunicado for more than 8 months. All of the girls are students of different tertiary institutions across the country. Fatima Ahmad is a student of UDUS, she lost a complete session in her school, complement of the Nigerian Army. It is getting to a year now, but neither the Government nor the girls kidnappers said anything about them. If not the abductors and their associates, nobody knows Where they are.

It is only In Nigeria that such disastrous act will happen and normalcy prevails among citizens. "ENOUGH IS ENOUGH", Who will help in rescuing Fatima? Its time to speak for Fatima, let’s make our voice heard, Fatima should be released, her whereabout should be revealed. Join me in the struggle.
