Why a 9 year old wants to return to her 'hubby' - Shettima

Abuja - Governor Kashim Shettima has claimed that the main reason why a 9-year-old girl that was previously rescued from Boko Haram wants to return to her Sambisa 'hubby' is due to extreme indoctrination enforced by the terrorist group.

According to Sun News Online, the Governor has described the development as sad, saying that victims of the sect become so indoctrinated that they refuse to accept freedom even though it may save their lives.

“Imagine a small girl who is just nine years old crying to return to her Boko Haram husband in the bush to continue with the life of terror­ists. This clearly shows the insurgents have been indoctrinating their cap­tives and hostages,” the governor said during the weekend.

The girl is alleged to have embarked on a hunger strike, insisting that she wants to return to her Boko Haram husband.
