From the front lines of Nigeria comes Emmanuel Ogebe.  Alison Howard, CWA Communications Director, recently sat down with Emmanuel, a special legal consultant on Nigeria, to discuss what’s going on in Nigeria now after the kidnapping of almost 300 girls by the terrorist group Boko Haram and what we can do to help.

Emmanuel is a special legal consultant on Nigeria with the distinction of being the first specialist on Nigeria out of 100,000 lawyers admitted in the U.S. Capitol. He is also a managing partner at the U.S. Nigeria Law Group in Washington, D.C.  Ogebe’s legal expertise is in international human rights with an emphasis on Africa. He earned the singular distinction of being the youngest law graduate in Nigeria. Ogebe was exiled to the U.S. after becoming one of Nigeria’s political detainees during the brutal years of military dictatorship under Gen. Sani Abacha. Ogebe has played a pivot role in shaping foreign policy in Nigeria’s quest for democracy.

Watch the video below to hear more from Alison’s interview with Emmanuel.
