Women freed by Boko Haram reveal captivity horror


Abuja: Women hostages held by Boko Haram militants in northern Nigeria said that some fellow captives were stoned to death as the army approached to rescue them. The women described the merciless nature of Boko Haram fighters who started pelting stone at them when they were refused to run away as the army came nearer to the camp. The army had rescued a group comprising of nearly 300 women and children and brought out of the vast Sambisa forest to a government camp. According to the military officials, 700 women were rescued in the past week following an offensive against the Islamist group. The women said that many of them were killed in the stone pelting by the militants. The survivors said that when they were initially captured, the militants had killed men and older boys in front of their family members before taking women and girls into the forest. Some were forced to marry the militants. The captured women were not allowed to keep away from their sight. One woman described the pathetic condition regarding how they were fed with just one meal a day. She added that they were fed with only ground dry maize in the afternoons which was not suitable for human consumption as it led to malnutrition, disease and death.

The women and children were traveled for three days in search of pick-up trucks from the vast Sambisa forest, from where they were rescued, to the camp in the city of Yola. According to the officials, almost all those rescued are from Gumsuri, a village near the town of Chibok. Meanwhile it has been determined that any of those released were not from the group of nearly 300 Chibok schoolgirls kidnapped by Boko Haram a year ago. The mass abduction carried out by the militant group had led to worldwide protests demanding the release of the kidnapped girls. Thousands have already been killed in northern
