This Young Girl hid in a wardrobe for two days drinking body lotion for survival.


A survivor of the Kenya university massacre has spoken of how she hid in a wardrobe for two days in terror before finally being rescued.

Al Shabaab militants stormed Garissa University College early on Thursday morning, quickly overwhelming the security guards and firing on anyone they believed to be Christian.

They then took hostages, and shot or beheaded anyone who could not recite the Koran. The massacre left 148 people dead.

And survivor Cynthia Cheroitich, 19, has said that she spent 50 hours hidden under a pile of clothes in the wardrobe of a classroom and drinking body lotion because she was too scared to open the doors.

She kept asking for reassurance from the security forces they were not al-Shabaab before she could come out,’ a local police officer told MailOnline.


‘She was given milk and rushed to the Garissa hospital, where she is being observed before being given counselling.’

‘I was just praying to my God,’ Ms Cheroitich said.

Most of those killed were students but two police officers, a soldier and two watchmen also died.

Kenyan interior minister Joseph Nkaissery said the four terrorists ‘exploded like bombs’ when they were shot because they were strapped with so many explosives.
