Dapchi School Girls Who Escaped From Boko Haram Kidnappers Recount Ordeal

dapchi school girls survived

Hafsat Lawal, one of the Dapchi school girls who escaped during the abduction has narrated her ordeal.

She said:

“I was around when the students were kidnapped. I just came out of the bathroom when I heard gunshots. Initially, I thought it was an electricity transformer that exploded.

“Nevertheless, I started running and I saw my sister too running. When I asked her why she was running, she said I should shut up and let’s run for our lives. So, I followed her and we ran towards the main gate.

“We asked the gateman to open the gate for us. But he refused and told us that it was not safe outside. So we jumped over the fence and started running. We then saw some men in military uniform covering their heads with scarf. They asked us to come so that they would rescue us.

“But when we came close to them, we discovered that they were not real military men. Some of them were wearing slippers. So we changed direction and one of them started following us.

“We jumped the school fence and came inside the school premises again. We then started running towards the staff quarters. The guy who was following us started shouting that we should stop or he would shoot us.

“I disobeyed him and kept running. He then started shooting sporadically in the air. I am very sad that my sisters were kidnapped. In fact, I became sick because of the trauma of the incident.” I want to further my education, but not in this school.”

Another lucky survivor, Talatu Abubakar, said:

“I feel very bad that they kidnapped my sisters. At first, I thought they ran into the bush the way we did. But after the incident, we could not find them.

“There is nothing that will make me come back to this school because of what I saw. But, if the government can provide enough security in the school, I may come back.”.

    If any kidnapping actually happened,then the APC government was behind that…. Nigeria always play politics in a stupid way.

    They will never fix the light, roads,schools,hospitals and now playing with people’s life, just to stand and be making fake promises to get them done if elected,though nothing like election in Nigeria, and after their selection,they will not attend to any,will be busy heaping money for themselves. Stupid set of low primates.

    I THOUGHT As much @ King kunle.
    All these superficial reports are not even convincing. I see all these happenings as buhari‘s strategies to score cheap political points come 2019 but then, a great suprise awaits him and all his sycophants.

    The whole scenerio was a clear set up. A well orchestrated plan work by buhari and his incompetent All Promises Compromised (APC) party.

    I take a stroll…

    You are not herders, so this govt has no security to provide for any of you. Thank God you escaped because I am quite sure your friends would have started missing their periods by now. Very unfortunate and failed system.
