Source: Nigeria first lady believed kidnapping was a 'hoax,' to make husband look bad

CNN's Erin Burnett has traveled to Nigeria to cover both its positive stories – it has one of the fastest growing economies on earth- and its negative ones.

One of the stories Burnett covered was that of Abdul Farouk Mutallab, the underwear bomber. He was from the Muslim-dominated northern part of Nigeria where Boko Haram operates.

'I will sell them,' Boko Haram leader says of kidnapped Nigerian girls

Since then, Boko Haram has only gotten stronger, more ambitious. Burnett explains why we should care.

    A hoax? That's disgusting, with all that's happening she's thinking of 2015. Her husband is absolutely incapable, let him step down. #BringBackOurGirls
