Metro How Late President Yar'Adua's Former Adviser Risked His Life To Save Chibok Girls



Stephen Davis, 63, an Australian who has allegedly worked for the past two presidents of Nigeria as an International adviser has revealed how he risked his life in attempting to secure the release of the Chibok girls from boko haram. Relief Web has this story.

A Perth-based international adviser has survived months of extreme danger to try to rescue more than 270 schoolgirls kidnapped by terrorist group Boko Haram in Nigeria.

Stephen Davis, 63, has returned from a four-month sojourn with rare footage of the intense fighting in Nigeria's north-east, as Boko Haram stepped up efforts to establish an Islamic state.

Dr Davis, who has a PhD in political geography, has worked as an adviser to the past two presidents of Nigeria. He established extensive contacts with tribes and terrorist groups in Africa, including three small cells of Al Qaeda, while working as a trouble-shooter for oil and gas company Shell in the Niger delta.

When news broke in April about the girls' kidnapping from a school in the village of Chibok, near the Cameroon border, Dr Davis, who had recently moved to Perth from London, decided he could not sit on his hands.
