Boko Haram Asked Us To Count Ourselves, Borno Abduction Escapee Recounts

boko haramMembers of the deadly Boko Haram “asked us to count ourselves,” one of the female students who escaped after being abducted at the Government Girls’ Secondary School in Chibok Local Government Area of Borno State has said.
The student, named Hajara, who recounted her ordeal in the hands of the Boko Haram abdoctors before she escaped said that the number of students abducted were 243.
She said that their abductors were over one hundred, adding that only about 80 of them were able to jump off the broken down truck in which they were being transported across a bush and ran to safety.
The students were abducted on Monday evening by heavily armed Boko Haram Islamists.
The girls were said to have fled when a truck conveying them to Boko Haram camp broke down on the way. The lucky girls reportedly jumped off the broken down truck, escaped into the bush and made their way to safety. The escaped students were said to have scattered in the bush when the vigilante and local hunters found them.
It was learnt that some of them were wounded while others sustained some fractures, as a result of jumping from the high vehicle.
The parents of the escapees thanked God that their children have been rescued, even as they prayed for those who are still with the Boko Haram to come back safely.
“Our prayer is that every father will have his child back,” one of the parents said, adding that his daughter came back sound and healthy but weak stressing.
“Our children told us that when they started running, the insurgents didn’t shoot them. They allowed those who could run to go but those who could not run either as a result of fear or wound are still with them in the bush.”
