Metro Escaped Chibok Schoolgirl Recounts Ordeal, Describes Sambisa Forest



One of the abducted Chibok schoolgirls who managed to escape from her abductors in Sambisa forest has revealed that the camps they were taken to were all trees and shrubs, with no buildings for shelter.

Pleading anonymity she told journalists during their visit to Shettima, the governor of Borno state that after they were abducted, the insurgents tore through the forest, avoiding trees and thick shrubs and even when the tyres of the car burst, they kept moving until they got to the place where they said was their destination, adding that there was no visible road leading to the place.

"The place they took us to after abducting us from the school was all forest with short trees and shrubs everywhere. There is no single building or house there, but there are tents made from plastic sheets in some places. I don’t know if that is where they call Sambisa. Some of the areas are thick and dark; some places have pools of water.”

She said it was when they were asked to go and fetch water the next day that she and some other girls summoned courage and ran as fast as they could, far away from their abductors.

"We ran all day, we kept on running until we got to some place where we were assisted by villagers to get home,” she said.

She also expressed doubts whether the other girls who are still in being held hostage were comfortable there, Nigerian Monitor reported.
