One of the returnees whose name was given as Asabe Aliyu, a 23-year-old mother of four children from Delsak, a village near Chibok town, told a Daily Times correspondent at Malkoi, one of the camps for displaced persons in Yola, Adamawa state, that beating was the order of the day in the Boko Haram camp.
Aliyu said she has been intermittently vomiting blood, an indication that she sustained internal injuries during her manhandling at the terrorist’s camp.
She said in addition to the deployment of all forms of vulgar words, the terrorists forced her into marrying one of them after a series of sexual assaults unleashed on her by different men on a daily basis.
Aliyu, who appears in poor health, further disclosed that death was the punishment for any infraction or mistake in Sambisa under the terrorist group.
“I was abducted six months ago in Delsak when our village was overrun by Boko Haram. First I had sojourned from my village to a forest close to Cameroun, they turned me into a sex machine. They took turns to sleep with me. Now, I am pregnant and I cannot identify the father,” she said.
Asabe went further to reveal that she even thought that the pregnancy would bring compassion from the sect, but was disappointed that with her condition as a pregnant woman she was still compelled to cook for the sect members.
