[NIGERIA] Kidnapped Boko Haram Girls Make Long Walk To Freedom

Scores of schoolgirls are held in a Boko Haram camp in northeast Nigeria after the Muslim extremist group kidnapped them en masse.

Four Nigerian schoolgirls who were kidnapped by Haram militants have made a dramatic escape by giving their guards the slip and trekking through the jungle for three weeks — “following the setting sun”.

The captives escaped from a group of more than 200 schoolgirls kidnapped by militants earlier this year from a school in Chibok in northeastern Nigeria.

They revealed that they had been raped every day during their captivity and were told their families would be killed if they criticised Haram or spoke in English.

The extraordinary story, the first confirmed escape from a camp run by the Islamist group over the border in neighbouring Cameroon, has been revealed by a British hostage negotiator who was involved in an unsuccessful attempt to rescue the girls.
