Comfort Bulus, one of the school girls who escaped from the Boko Haram insurgents who kidnapped 234 school girls has told her story of what happened.
According to Comfort, she was able to escape with other girls when the truck used to transport them broke down.
Her uncle Yahi Bwata gave an interview to NigerianInfo 99.3 FM, where he narrated Comfort’s ordeal.
“When the Boko haram people arrived in Chibok, the security men/army people called their boss and commander in BIU and they were told that they should face them but if the boss said “if you know that their weapon is stronger than your own, run for your lives.
“So when the security men saw that their guns were no match to that of the boko haram people, they ran. The Boko Haram people burnt the house of the chairman local government of Chibok, houses and so many shops, they burnt down the school building.
“Before kidnapping the female students writing their WAEC, they asked the girls for where the boys were but they were told that it was just an only girls school.
“This thing started at 1am and lasted till morning, this thing happened for over four hours but no one could do anything. Most of them were wearing army uniforms and their guns were superior.
“I spoke to one of the girls that escaped and she said the first set escaped when the Boko haram vehicle broke down on the way to the bush. The second set of girls that escaped said the driver of the van advised them to escape. He said “as I’m passing under the trees, if you get mind, you better hold a tree branch and jump down oh,” so that was what the few of them that were bold enough did and they even sustained injuries.
Three ladies that escaped later said they ran away when they were asked to go and fetch water”.
