Unyama wa Boko Haram (3)


A New report by Human Rights Watch reveals the damage done to girls and women abducted by Boko Haram .



Its report, Those Terrible Weeks in Their Camp: Boko Haram Violence Against Women and Girls in North-east Nigeria, is based on interviews with 30 women and girls abducted between April 2013 and April 2014, plus 16 people who witnessed kidnappings.


The women and girls were held in eight different camps for periods ranging from two days to three months, after being taken from their homes, while working on farms, fetching water or at school.

A 19-year-old said:
“I was told to approach a group of five men we saw in a nearby village and lure them to where the insurgents were hiding.”
 She told the young men that she needed help. 

 “When they followed me for a short distance, the insurgents swooped on them. Once we got back to the camp, they tied the legs and the hands of the captives and slit the throats of four of them as they shouted ‘Allahu Akbar’. 

 Then I was handed a knife to kill the last man. I was shaking with horror and couldn’t do it. The camp leader’s wife took the knife and killed him.”

Meyiwa was shot in the chest on Sunday night while visiting Khumalo in Vosloorus, Ekurhuleni.

Obasanjo In School 
Former President Olusegun Obasanjo, on Wednesday, had his first day in class as a Masters/Ph.d student of the National Open University of Nigeria, NOUN.

The former president is studying for a Masters and Doctorate degree in Christian Theology. 

The class which took place in Ota, Ogun State, was held with his internal supervisor, Philip Tachin, a lecturer in Systematic Theology and a pastor. 

After receiving an outline for the course, he was given his first assignment to review a number of literatures on the subject and to present a research paper for review. 

Olusegun Obasanjo obtained a Post Graduate Diploma in 2009.

The Masters degree will precede the Doctorate degree.

Obasanjo said he was optimistic that additional knowledge in Theology will help him understand how to use religion in the alleviation of problems that affect people at the grass roots generally but particularly in Africa.

Last month, Obasanjo told Premium Times that he was returning to school to achieve his aspirations in life.

“I’m going back to school because I have to have something to aspire to in every endeavour of life.

“I always aspire to something new in my farm. I do that in my international activities. I do it in my writing. I do it in the improvement of my academic work which helps to sharpen my brain and strengthen my faith,” he said.
