‘We slept on faeces, ate rice mixed with sand,’ Zamfara schoolgirl narrates ordeal in abductors’ den



One of the schoolgirls abducted from Government Girls Secondary School, Jangebe Zamfara State, has narrated their ordeal in the camp of their abductors.

Hafsatu Anka, an SS II student, who spoke in tears with News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) said they were laid in trenches littered with human faeces.

Anka said: “We saw other people, including women and children and father of one of our school mates, who had been in the den for three months.

“They walked us on foot where some of us got dislocated on their foot.

“They would pray as Muslims, but never allowed us to pray and they fed us with rice in which they put sand after cooking.”

Recall that gunmen abducted the girls from their dormitories in Government Girls Secondary School, Jangebe on Friday. Some of the girls were released on Tuesday.

The state governor, Bello Matawalle, who received the girls at about 5am on Tuesday in Gusau, said the 279 girls were returned safely without paying any ransom.
