Sudan War: We were sexually harassed, paid to urinate — Nigerian students recount ordeal

It will interest you to note that according to information gathered from Vanguard, returnee Nigerian students who were airlifted back to Nigeria from Egypt, have recounted their ordeal, alleging that some females were sexually harassed and were so broke to the extent of picking things from shops and ran away.

Upon arriving at the International Airport in Abuja, it will interest you to note that a returnee female student disclosed to the newsmen that they were seriously humiliated and slept in the open. The returnee female student spoke of her excruciating experience while at the border.

She said, “We spent all the money we had. We were so hungry and thirsty. They were harassing us sexually. There was no food, no water to drink. It got to a point we picked things from shops and ran away.”

A male student speaking on his ordeal explained that the situation was so bad that they even had to pay money before they were allowed to urinate, and hoped the war would soon end to enable him to go back to Sudan and complete just a semester to round up his programme.

Another female student narrated to BBC Hausa Service in an interview, that their legs were swollen due to long hours of stay in the buses. It should be recalled that buses were sept to evacuate some of the stranded Nigerian students. What are your reactions to this?
