It’s been 81 days since over 200 schoolgirls were abducted in Chibok, Borno, by men believed to be members of the Boko Haram Islamic sect.
In an interview with Sahara Reporters, Senator Khalifa Ahmed Zanna of Borno Central said that the girls are being raped while someone films them.
The Senator also spoke about the condition of the girls, conspiracy theories surrounding the Islamist militant group, and that the President needs to change priorities.
“Actually the information I’m getting, some of them are very disturbing. Although I don’t want to mention but they are just raping the girls on camera and even showing them on video, releasing it to the public.
Somebody told me that they were shown being raped, and in turn, it is the girl who was raped that came out kneeling down and begging the man to be patient. Do you know the reason why? They said when they rape them they shoot them.
Therefore the girl after being raped, she curled down to the man, kneeling down and begging him to please be patient. So disturbing.
And although I didn’t see the video, the person narrated to me, he said he had the video, and he was narrating to me, and look at the situation. And then the other scenario is that the Boko Haram are now out of funds, they are not getting enough food.
So they are going from one village to another, taking the little the villagers had, and going away. In fact most of the villages are almost moved out of their villages and moved to cities or gone into the neighbouring countries. So more or less they don’t have any chance of getting food. So I don’t know what they’re going to do, if food is not available are they going to sacrifice to give it to the girls.
And then, the other information I have, because you know the kidnap is a continuous process which they have been doing before the 200 and after the 200. So in their position, there are up to 500 or over 500 women who are being taken from the streets, on the main roads where they are traveling, or they go to the villages and collect them; all kinds of abductions,” he said.
