According to the popular adage, what a man can do, a woman can do even better. This adage has been proven true in Nigeria's north-eastern region, which has been a battleground for more than a decade between the forces of evil (Boko Haram) and the forces of good (soldiers).
Amina Bakari Gombi is a wife, mother, hunter, warrior, and tailor who lives in Adamawa State, one of the states devastated by Boko Haram, the world's third most dangerous terrorist organization after Al Qaeda and the Islamic State.
Amina Bakari is compared to the legendary Queen Amina of Zazzau, a Hausa warrior queen who ruled in the mid-16th century and has entered local folklore as a result of her warrior exploits.
Queen Amina could be said to have been brought to life by Aisha Gombi, Queen Hunter and nemesis of Boko Haram fighters.
At a time when many people, including men, were fleeing insurgents who were raiding communities, maiming, killing, rapping, and abducting men, women, and children, and razing villages, Aisha stood up to be counted.
She decided to use God's gift of hunting skills to protect her people and rescue those kidnapped by Boko Haram enclaves, particularly women and children.

At a time when Nigeria is dealing with terrorism, banditry, and kidnapping, more people like Aisha Gombi are needed. People who are willing to put their skills to use for the betterment of the country.
Aisha understood that there is no other place to call home than Nigeria, which is why she offered to assist. Some people may have such experiences and use them to do evil, but she did not.
