I Was Lucky To Escaped Boko Haram Abduction, Woman Shares Her True Life Story

My name is Susan, I'm an indegine of Bama local government in Borno state. My story is very irritating due to the llige threatening I faced from the Boko Haram terrorists.

My troubles started when a Hilux van stopped in our town in northeastern Nigeria, I knew i was in serious trouble.

Boko Haram terrorists grabbed me and took me to one of their camps. Before we left, they fired my husband in my presence, I cried bitterly, but they took me to their camp and they told me that I would be wasted like my husband if I didn't cooperate.

My faith and hope that one day to be reunited with my three little children kept me alive. I devised a plan to escape from my captors.

I tried and convinced the person in charge of me that I would collect my children and then return to the camp.

Luckly, my plan worked. I escaped, but almost died on the way to a refugee camp due to food poisoning.

It was so severe, i needed a blood transfusion. One of the international non governmental organisations in charge of health was able to help me with medicines and medical care.

The also rejoice with me in God's deliverance, but knows that there are thousands of other women, men, and children who remain trapped in Boko Haram camps.

We need to continue to pray for the Lord to bring deliverance to them too.

As the military, along with the help of a multi-national force, continues to liberate some towns held by Boko Haram, the devastation these terrorists have caused is overwhelming.

The militants have kidnapped thousands and have ruled those trapped in the bush with fear and trauma.

The emotional impact on the people of Nigeria is unimaginable and the government is ill-equipped to deal with its magnitude.

The aftermath of this crisis will offer the society one of her biggest opportunities, but also one of her biggest challenges to be instruments of healing in the hands of the Lord.

Although, my condition is now stable but each time I remembered what happened, I cried repeatedly because they have taken away my happiness.

My husband was a nice man, since we got married, we have never had a serious problem, we were so faithful to each other, but I believe God is in control. May his gentle soul rest in perfect peace.
