Don’t forget my friends under Boko Haram captivity, Chibok girl says

First appearance of the girls months after the abduction. The terrorists stated their location as Sambisa Forest.

A Chibok girl who escaped from Boko Haram insurgents has urged the Nigerian government and the world not to forget her friends who are still in captivity.

The girl who spoke under the pseudonym – Sa’a –made the plea during the Global Education and Skills Forum in Dubai.

“These girls are human beings, not something that we can forget about,” BBC quotes her as saying.

“How would you feel if your daughter or wife was missing? Not one day or two, but three years. It’s very painful,” she said.

“I remember those girls, but their dreams are now no more.”

Sa’a said she was lucky to jump out the back of a truck and escape with a friend.

“I thought I was going to die that night,” Sa’a recounted.

Although 21 of the girls were released in October 2016, not less than 195 remain unaccounted for.
