‘I Still Think About You’- An Escapee Girl Tells Her Boko Haram Husband


A girl rescued from Boko Haram, Amina Ali Nkeki, revealed that she misses the father of her baby, a suspected Islamist militant. In her first interview since being found with her baby in  May, 2016, Reuters reports that she wanted to go home to Chibok.

Nkeki and her child are being held in Abuja, for what the government calls a ‘restoration process’.

Miss Nkeki was found three months ago by a vigilante group in a forest with her 4-month- old baby and a suspected militant identified as Mohammed Hayatu, who claimed to be her husband.

The 21-year-old lady said she was quite unhappy about her separation from her husband, who was arrested after they were found. She said ‘I want him to know that I am still thinking about him,” she told Reuters. ‘Just because we got separated does not mean that I don’t think about him.’

Miss Nkeki said she had not watched the video released by Boko Haram on Sunday, which apparently shows recent footage of some the other missing Chibok girls. She said ‘I think about them a lot – I would tell them to be hopeful and prayerful, in the same way God rescued me, He will also rescue them.’
