The recently released Chibok girls have revealed shocking details of how some politicians allegedly sponsor the activities of the Boko Haram insurgents in the northeast for their personal gains.
According to a clergy identified as Pastor Bulus Baba from Kaya community in Chibok local government area of Borno state, his discussions with some of the girls revealed that some politicians reportedly played an active part in their abduction.
Speaking during an interview in Maiduguri, Pastor Bulus said the politicians reportedly did this in order to frustrate the administration of former president, Goodluck Jonathan.
He said, the girls claimed they were not immediately driven into the forest as widely believed, but were first taken to a house in Borno Government Residential Area in Maiduguri where they stayed for two months before they were taken to Gwoza where they claimed that a top politician allegedly housed them in one of his residences for about 8 months untill a bomb forced them into the forest.
Some of the Chibok girls and other women abducted along with them were allegedly killed in the attack.
The girls said, they spent over 8 months in Gwoza local government area along with other abducted women. They said they were kept at a resident of one of the top politicians in that local government area until at a point when a fighter jet dropped bomb that touch part of the house killing some of the girls.
The girls said that after leaving Gwoza, they were divided into groups and while some severely s3xually abused and others were forced to marry the militants.
It was a sad story, we believe that those behind this evil will never go unpunished. For us in Chibok, we will keep praying that, those of them who are still being held by their captors shall gain freedom and be reunited with their families like these ones that came home.
