Boko Haram victim tells of captivity near Chibok girls

DW: Christina Ijabla – you were kidnapped around two years ago when Madagali, your home town in northeastern Nigeria, was overrun by Boko Haram fighters. What can you remember about the day you were abducted?

Christina Ijabla: I remember hearing gunfire and everybody started to run away. It was chaos, everybody was left to fend for themselves. Suddenly five men appeared, blocking our way. They asked why we were running away. We told them that we were trying to get away from the fighting. Then they said simply: you are not going anywhere. We pleaded with them to let us go, but they showed no mercy. They then took us to a house in Madagali where we were held as prisoners.

    Let’s all remember that this has absolutely nothing to do with Islam.

          Signs are cheap: reality is that the girls come back as “spoiled goods” and face a very difficult future. Ms. Obama should sponsor a fair few of these girls, gifting them with American residency, scholarships, etc.

            So should Oprah. Remember her African school project. I don’t know if it’s still going.

            Given the lack of publicity recently, rather doubt it. A big shame as the kids there need all the help they can get re education.

        • It’s a way to care without caring at all.
