Boko Haram members always assured us of our return – Released Chibok girls


Released Chibok girls have said Boko Haram insurgents treated them well during their over two years in captivity.

This was as the girls claimed that they were not raped or abused during their stay in captivity, Thomson Reuters Foundation reports.

The foundation said the daily routine of the captured girls included personal time in the morning followed by Quranic teaching and cooking meals.

According to the report, the disclosure was contained in a confidential report based on the girls’ two-week debriefing prepared for President Muhammadu Buhari.

The report said, “The girls said the Boko Haram men always assured them that they would eventually go back home to their families, and were careful about what they said around the girls and how they treated them.

“They had been fed well and regularly, until the military cut off Boko Haram supplies.

“The girls said that those of them who did not agree to marry were used as house girls (servants).”

Recall that the insurgent group recently released 21 of the over 200 girls abducted from Chibok, Borno State in 2014.

Just last week, the Army said it discovered another girl, Maryam Ali during its screening of some persons who escaped from Sambisa Forest, the stronghold of the insurgent group.
