'I Feel Afraid' - Chibok Student Who Escaped From Boko Haram Insurgents

Chibok Student (R)
The world currently has its focus on Nigeria and how to secure the release of over 200 school girls who were kidnapped from their dormitory in Chibok, Borno State by Boko Haram insurgents. One of the lucky girls who managed to escape that night after they were loaded into cargo trucks has said "I feel afraid and would not go back to my school if it is reopened."

In an exclusive CNN interview, the young girl spoke about how they escaped. "We would rather die than go,We ran into the bush. We ran and we ran." With fear in her eyes and voice, the young woman, who asked not to be identified, described the experience. She said she and 2 friends who had also escaped saw something on fire and headed in that direction, presuming it was a building in the village that had been set ablaze. 

Obviously still shaken from the experience, when asked to describe what her kidnappers wore, she responded: "I feel afraid." Villagers also revealed that they passed along warnings to local police that the terrorists were on their way that night. They said they received phone calls from family and friends from surrounding villages and were told that there was a convoy of cargo trucks, pickups and motorcycles heading their way. One villager said he was told, "They are coming for you. Run!"
The villagers said police called for reinforcements, but none came. Everyone, including the police, fled into the bush during the attack. But the girls were asleep in their dorms.
