Boko Haram men rape and beat us says victim

27 May 2016, 12:26

Abuja - Paulina Jabina a young girl who managed to escape from the Boko Haram camp has narrated the ordeal she and other girls kidnapped experienced.

She said they were used to satisfy their sexual desires and were always assaulted by the terrorists.

In an interview with Leadership, Paulina said she was in Sambisa forest for a year before she escaped. She said the treatment from the terrorists was terrible as they were sometimes beaten.

“We really suffered a lot and we passed through a lot of tribulations to the extent that I thought I would never survive the ordeals. We suffered degrading and dehumanising conditions as we received a lot of beating, we mostly stayed with hunger and most times living on fruits. The only time we got something to eat was when the insurgents raided communities and even at that they usually gives us small morsels which we cook in order to survive.

“With the success Nigerian Troops are making over the insurgents, the Boko Haram insurgents are now in complete disarray because at a point, we heard their leader saying that he was considering negotiating with the government in order to release the Chibok girls and also heard him a number of times, regretting his actions.

Most of the abducted girls have been married off to the Boko Haram fighters while a number of them were sent on suicide missions but even at that, some strong hearted women refused to change their faith.”

“I was married to one insurgent called Bana. He is in Sambisa now. They used to beat the hell out of any girl who refuses to submit to their sexual demands. Sometimes they kill or inflict serious body injuries to any girl who refuses to sleep with them.” Paulina admitted that she was pregnant for the terrorist and hoped God will protect her to deliver her child safely.

Naij reports that following the rescue of Amina Ali, one of the girls abducted by Boko Haram, the Civilian Joint Task Force asked the Nigerian Police Force to give them he N50 million reward it promised in 2014.
