Four More Girls Have Escaped from Boko Haram Camp Secretly

BOKO HARAM Camp 1

Luck has smiled on few of the families of the Chibok schoolgirls abducted by Boko Haram as four girls out of the over 200 female students have managed to escape from the den of the highly dreaded terrorist sect.

 

“The people of Chibok are anxiously waiting for the safe return of their children. Except for the unfortunate situation where two of the parents have passed on. They were known to have BP (blood pressure) issues, although I am not a medical expert, but they will not be opportuned to welcome back their daughters.

“Latest report reaching us is that instead of 53, those that have escaped are now 57 and those remaining are 164 and not 168 as before. This is out of the 221 girls that were abducted.”

 

 

The Chairman, Chibok Local Government Area, Mr. Bana Lawan, announced this on Tuesday in Abuja at a one-day stakeholders meeting for validation of draft humanitarian response plan for the abducted girls. The meeting was organised by the National Emergency Management Agency.

 

Mr Lawan explained that it was not all those who registered for the Senior School Certificate Examination in the school that stayed back in the school on the day of the unfortunate incident.

“Those that registered for the SSCE are not all that sat for the exam. Over 500 registered and those who had relatives around decided to move to various places like Kaduna and Maiduguri to write the exams. Those that were left with no relations decided to stay back to take the risk and among them 221 were abducted.”

Lawan said the morale of female students in North-East is now low as most of them have been discouraged.
