A 15-year-old girl, Amina Mallam Usman, has narrated how she narrowly escaped the recent abduction of some school girls in Dapchi.
Amina was one of the dozens targeted by the terrorists and about being packed into their vehicles for a journey into an uncertain future. She had only a few seconds to break away from the terrorists who were out to ruin her life.
With one heavy jerk, belying her little frame, Amina broke loose from her captor, leaving behind her hijab, lest it became a hindrance in her escape bid.
The young girl has described her escape as narrow and owes it to the grace of God. She prayed that God might protect her friends and mates and guide them back home.
She said: “When Boko Haram came to our school, we thought they were soldiers because they dressed like soldiers.
“We ran, and then one of them called us. One of them asked me to come to the car.
“I got close to the car, and then one of them started laughing at me.
“I moved closer to them, thinking they were soldiers.
“I soon realized that they were not soldiers. As I made to run away, one of them tried to grab me. I dodged him but he got my hijab.
“I quickly removed my hijab and left him with it and ran away. I thought I was dead.
“They entered our hostel again, but some of us ran into the bush. I ran up to five kilometres and hid in one Fulani settlement called Miligia.
Asked how many students she saw in the invaders’ vehicles, Amina said: “There were many students in the vehicles.. They were up to 50 that were in the vehicles.”
