The daring escape comes after days of heavy fighting in northeast Nigeria
More than 60 girls and women kidnapped in northeast Nigeria last
month by suspected Islamist militant group Boko Haram have reportedly fled their captors.
Their escape was confirmed to news agency AFP by a high-level though unnamed security source in the restive Borno state.
A local vigilante, Abbas Gava, also said he had “received an alert
from my colleagues … that about 63 of the abducted women and girls had
made it back home.”
More than 200 schoolgirls abducted in April are still being held by
Boko Haram, which seeks to establish a fundamentalist Islamic state in
the country’s north.
The development follows Friday’s clashes between Nigerian soldiers
and Boko Haram militants in Borno. At least 50 insurgents were killed as
the Nigerian military repelled an attack on its military base in the
town of Damboa, said the Defense Ministry on Saturday.
Six Nigerian soldiers, including the commanding officer, died during
the fighting, said Defense Ministry spokesman Major General Chris
An officer who requested anonymity told
the AP that the raid appeared to be a reprisal attack by Boko Haram
after the Nigerian military carried out devastating air strikes 24 hours
This the same Nigerian government that claimed they rescued them last month, got caught in their lie and had to tell the truth but now we should like, totally believe them that they found all the girls but they can't save them because it's too dangerous? But it is safe enough for the government to announce it to the world? GTFOHWTBS!
i immediately knew that fundraiser was fake. Money for what? Yall aint
even doing your fcking job and you want me to send your azz money??
events are making me see how massively incompetent many countries are.
From malaysia's mh370- bullshting around, making concrete factual
statements,then retracting statements, dragging their feet south
korea's sewol ferry- taking there sweet time getting into the ferry.
They took like three days before they decided to break into the ferry.
rejecting the help of other countries, especially countries like japan
because they have political beef. Then after damn near a week and a half
and realizing they are indeed incompetent they start accepting help.
now this kidnapping- its been a freaking month! With a massive amount
of girls like that you would think it would be that much easier to find
them. It must be difficult to move so many people. Nigeria is clearly
dragging their feet. US would have found those girls within a damn week.
Why are these countries so incompetent??
those extremist's can;t be harming these precious girls if they want in return those prisoned men they want in exchange...right? ...so sad...so sad...i seriously hope the US can help get these girls back...i mean hey if we can find Hussein and Osama bin laden...then there should be no problems whatsoever getting these girls back..
