Skip to comments.Nigerian schoolgirls: Girl who escaped Boko Haram abduction speaks publicly about ordeal
Posted on 05/11/2014 8:29:46 PM PDT by nickcarraway
A teenage girl who managed to escape kidnapping by Islamist group Boko Haram during a night raid in Nigeria last month has spoken publicly about the ordeal, as international assistance to locate more than 200 girls still held hostage ramps up.
Militants stormed a secondary school in the village of Chibok, near the Cameroon border, on April 14 and abducted the girls, who were taking exams at the time.
In an exclusive interview with CNN, one of the girls, who asked not to be identified, said the kidnappers were loading the girls into seven lorries when she escaped.
"He said go and enter this car - a big lorry," she said.
We ran and ran and we were gone. I feel afraid. The unidentified girl who escaped abduction. "They say OK - enter this lorry, we go. I say I will drop down.
"We run in the bush. We ran and ran and we were gone.
"I feel afraid."
More than 200 girls are still being held hostage, and Boko Haram leader Abubakar Shekau says the group intends to sell the teenagers.
"I abducted your girls. I will sell them in the market, by Allah," he said in a video released shortly after the attack.
Boko Haram, which means "Western education is sinful", is loosely modelled on the Taliban movement in Afghanistan. The group considers all who do not follow its strict ideology as infidels, whether they are Christian or Muslim.
It demands the adoption of Sharia law in all of Nigeria.
"Allah has instructed me to sell them. They are his property and I will carry out his instructions."
The group's name means "Western education is sinful" and in the video, Shekau makes reference to the fact that the girls were undergoing Western education.
The abduction has sparked worldwide outrage, with several nations offering military and intelligence assistance to locate the girls.
Diplomats, aid workers, defence officials and other experts from Britain and the United States have been working with the Nigerian government since Saturday.
Nigerian president Goodluck Jonathan says he is optimistic about finding those still held hostage, citing international support, with Israel the latest country to offer help.
Israeli prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu did not give details of the proposed assistance but Mr Jonathan confirmed the offer to send a team of counter-terrorism experts was made during a phone conversation.
A viral social media campaign calling for the schoolgirls' return has seen public figures such as US first lady Michelle Obama tweeting with the hashtag #BringBackOurGirls.
On Sunday, French president Francois Hollande called on African leaders to hold a summit in Paris on security in west Africa.
The leaders of at least five African countries - Nigeria, Chad, Cameroon, Niger and Benin - may take part, a source close to the president said.
What an ignorant idiot. Like THAT'S going to help!
90% of abducted Nigerian schoolgirls are Christians; jihadists released Muslim girls

Hillary fought to keep Boko Haram off known terrorist list against the advice if our CIA FBI and Her Own dept advisors...
Hillary is a Total Failure and must never be allowed to hold any Govt Office again.
She is a disgrace to America. Her hands are covered with innocent’s Blood.
Have any major Muslim clerics declared a fatwa agains the kidnappers for violating Islamic principles??
More than 200 girls are still being held hostage, and Boko Haram leader Abubakar Shekau says the group intends to sell the teenagers.
Bad joke, but Anthony Weiner, Bill Clinton, and Gary Condit offered to buy them.
I hope the Nigerian authorities get them out unharmed.
CNN would ask: "Does it upset you that Condoleeza Rice refused to name Boko Haram as a terrorist group? Do you think this could have been prevented if she hadn't protected them?"
Not so far as I have read. That’s another thing that makes this story heartbreaking and deeply troubling. This taken together with the murder of the boys at their school seem to be what happens in Africa to young people who want to better themselves and their country. Nigeria is stuck with a self interested thug like Goodluck Jonathan and nothing better is on the horizon.
Michelle Obama could give up one of her vacations and use the money to buy all of the 200 girls their freedom. But her vacations are sooo much more important.
Where does she get off calling herself "first lady"? It's not even clear that "she" is a woman.
“...The unidentified girl who escaped abduction...”
The girl is “unidentified” to conceal her Muslim name. The 10% of the abducted girls who are Muslim were released by the jihadists.
Didn’t Boko Haram carry out that mall attack? Is there a time line list of Boko Haram atrocities?
I just got off the phone with God. It is not often I get a phone call from the Almighty. When I do, it is a special time. God told me that Cain and Able started things off on a bad foot and it was all down hill ever since. He is especially concerned that humans put words into his mouth that encourage murder and violence. He prefers that humans love one another as he loves them. And when there is punishment for ones actions, he does not want punishment in his name or punishment done for him. If there is punishment, leave it up to him.
He is especially concerned about those who think it is their right to take his place and play god over their fellow human beings. All is done as false prophets with hatred instead of love for their fellow man.
I'll let everyone know what God tells me in our next phone call. It should be interesting.
the Boko bunnies , need to tracked down , hunted down , like game , and killed . To the man . No arrests , no mercy , no judicial shenanigans . Find their families they sprang forth from and kill them too . Really , utterly wipe them from the face of the earth , expunge them , and their kin , from t he fabric of humanity . End of problem . And a wake up call for whatever wannabes might be lurking .
And this is our problem because.... ?
Search the phrase “Promise of hashtag”.
Yes. they are idiots.
Get a sense of it by FR title search Nigeria and click on archive (go back to a least 2011). Your head might explode.
In case anyone is confused: Allah = Satan
boko haram, wasn’t that a band from the 60s?
On a more serious note, wherever there is islam there will be this kind of thing. It’s as inevitable as 1+1=2.
That's a joke, right?
I think George Will put it very well in a syndicated column in May of 2005:
"The world is much menaced just now by people who think that the world and their duties in it are clear and simple. They are certain that they know what, or who, created the universe and what this creator wants them to do to make our little speck of the universe perfect, even if extreme measureseven violenceare required."
I have worked in Nigeria and know what I speak. Radical Islamists are at war with the West. The day we understand this is the day they lose. If we do not understand this is the day we lose. When you lose you do not get a second chance. Radical Islamists are at war with Western Civilization. The non radical Muslims cower in fear of the radical Muslims.
I’ve a good sense of what is going on in Nigeria. It’s another front in the war by Islam on the west.
We’re not going to do what needs to be done, which is slaughter saracens by the thousands. That’s the only “language” that Muslims understand - wholesale slaughter.
Instead, we’re going to get a feeble campaign with limited resources, maybe a couple of spec-ops teams on a snoop-n-poop op, which is going to make us look impotent and feeble.
This business with kidnapping girls for use in a sex slave trade is just more of what Islam promotes as the “religion of peace.” The one good thing about no longer having Bush in the White House is that we don’t need to be fed that line of treacle any more. The bad news about not having Bush in the WH any more is that we have someone who makes even more banal gestures in the war by Islam on the west.
The POTUS who puts an end to things like this will be the POTUS who, when a bunch of Muslims take to the streets in violent protest of some action by the west, flies a couple of A-10’s or AC-130’s over the streets in a strafing run or two. And then when there are more protests to protest all the deaths at the first protest, the POTUS turns those protests into a hamburger festival as well.
That will be the moment that the Muslims decide “Uh oh, this might not work quite as well as we were planning.” Until that point, we’re going to keep losing ground.
But this POTUS isn’t going to do anything like that. So we should just keep out people and assets out of the situation, lest we look even more impotent and idiotic than we have for the last 10+ years.
If the mooch had been the one abducted, I for one would hold up a sign that reads, “keep the mooch..we Americans don’t want her back”
US first lady...only in HER mind.
George Will must be listening to God too.
“the Boko bunnies , need to tracked down , hunted down , like game , and killed .”
Yes, by other Nigerians. This is not America’s problem, and the Obamas’ chiming in on it makes that clear. Our government is maintaining the illusion that Islam is a religion of peace; they aren’t going to pick & choose when that applies. If oppressed blacks in Africa decide that girls shouldn’t be educated, then who am I (as a white devil) to tell them otherwise?
“Radical Islamists are at war with the West. The day we understand this is the day they lose. If we do not understand this is the day we lose. When you lose you do not get a second chance. Radical Islamists are at war with Western Civilization.”
We lost already in Somalia. When we elected an East African Muslim as president twice we showed there was no fight left in us at all. No American troops will die in Africa; soon after (and because of) Somalia we ignored the Rwanda genocide because no Americans will support losing our soldiers in that hole.
this is generally considered to be true, but it is not.
Rwanda was masterminded by the Clinton's WH (killing of Rwansadan and Ugandan president by shooting down their plane)
When African countries offered troops to stop bloodshed, and asked the U.S. for logistics, Clinton flatly refused.
Google American Minerals Coltan. That't how Hitlery got very nice blood diamond.
The goal: Install Kagame in Rwanda at the estimated cost of 500,000 dead. It is common knowledge in the French speaking world and Africa.
After the Rwandan genocide, U.S. provided training and logistics to hunt and murder some 300,000 Hutus who fled to East Congo.
Why? Coltan, as I already said.
A good idea.
Good idea---I went back further (snark).
Did somebody say Hillary AND Nigeria in the same sentence?
THIS JUST IN This week Hillary will host a campaign fundraiser for Chelsea's MIL who is running for Congress. Marjory Margolies Mezvinsky (Dem-PA) was a Congressman when Bill Clinton was president. The then-buzz is Billy cajoled Marjorie into voting for a tax hike---she promptly got voted out at the next election.
Marjory had other problems---her then-husband (Chelsea's FIL), Edward Mezvinsky, is a convicted felon.
Edward, a lawyer and himself a former Democrat Congressman, got conned into several notorious several Nigerian-based email financial frauds guaranteed to make you rich. So in his haste to get rich quick, to raise money to get in on these "heaven-sent" investment schemes, Edward defrauded many of his friends and business contacts.
Alas, when the Nigerians got their hands on Edwards' money, they did a 23 skidoo. Having failed to come up w/ a ROI, Edward got nabbed by the long arm of the law. Mezvinsky pleaded guilty to 31 of 69 felony counts.. He did hard time----spent 7+ years in a federal prison w/ no chance of parole, and still owes millions in restitution.
Democrat Congressman 2014 candidate Marjory Margolies is also no stranger to the dollar disease. Because of her husband's felony convictions, she filed for bankruptcy. But the court would NOT discharge her of her debts, finding that she could NOT explain where some $1 million in assets had vanished, in the previous 4 year span...during Mezvitsky's crime spree.
WIKI Mezvinsky's Criminal activities: Mezvinsky was involved in a series of business transactions that ultimately led to his downfall.Beginning in the early 1990s Mezvinsky fell prey to a wide variety of infamous Nigerian 419 scams.
According to a federal prosecutor, Mezvinsky was conned by "just about every different kind of African-based scam weve ever seen." In order to raise the funds needed to front the money for the fraudulent investment schemes he was being offered, Mezvinsky became, himself, a conman, tapping his network of contacts and dropping the name of the Clinton family to convince unwitting marks to give him money. He even conned Marjory's mother into giving him money.
In March 2001, Mezvinsky was indicted and later pleaded guilty to 31 of 69 felony charges of bank fraud, mail fraud, and wire fraud. Nearly $10 million was involved in the crimes. Shortly after his indictment, he was diagnosed with bipolar disorder, but the judge at his trial disallowed a mental illness defense. He served his time at Federal Prison Camp, Eglin. Mezvinsky, Federal Bureau of Prisons # 55040-066, was released in April 2008. He remained on federal probation until 2011, and owes substantial restitution to his victims.
TALKING POINTS Excerpted from Philly.com - Jessica Parks - 4/12/14
PHILADELPHIA Former President Bill Clinton delivered a rousing speech Thursday to promote Marjorie Margolies congressional campaign, assuring the audience that I would be here even if her son werent my son-in-law.
Then-Congressman Marjory Margolies gave then-Pres Clinton the deciding vote on a budget bill---after which she was promptly voted out of office.
The Mezvitsky's and the Clintons were thick as thieves, and were frequent guests at the WH. Mezvitsky reportedly dropped the Clinton name to con people into throwing in with him on the multiple Nigerian scams he was involved with.
Mezvinsky used the funds to travel to Nigeria to pursue one hare-brained scheme after another. He ultimately lost more than $3 million to the scammers, falling especially hard for the notorious "black money" scam, where victims are told millions of dollars have been coated with black ink so the money could be smuggled out of Nigeria. The scammers then offer to sell a special, expensive chemical to clean the ink off of the money. Prosecutors say Mezvinsky fell for at least three separate "black money" schemes.
Mezvistsky, a lawyer, and a former Democrat Congressman, told the Des Moines Register from prison in 2003, that he found the Nigerians convincing. "The man later came out with a chemical, threw it on the money, and it all turned to $100 bills. He gave me 10 to have them tested back home. And they were real," Mezvinsky told the Register.
Mezvinsky pleaded guilty to more than 30 counts of fraud, and was sentenced to 80 months in federal prison.
After Mezvitsky went to jail, Marjory tried to declare bankruptcy, but the judge refused---saying she could not account for large amts of monies apparently accumulated during Mezvitsky's crime spree.
If theres money involved, can the Clintons be far behind? We need to check the Clintons' campaign contributions AND donations to the three Clinton tax-exempt foundations.
Huh, come again?
Josh Rogin reported that Clinton refused to designate Boko Haram as a terrorist organization (which would have given the US more tools to stop their murderous rampage).
One of the things power-crazed Dummycrats have elevated to an art form is acting like it never happened (when their policies turn disastrous).
THE WOMAN WHO WOULD BE PRESIDENT Hillary Clinton is now decrying the infamous kidnapping of 300 Nigerian schoolgirls, but she never mentioned that her State Dept (which she ruled w/ an iron hand)---- refused to place the savage "Boko Haram" terrorist group on the State Dept list of foreign terrorist organizations going way back in 2011, after the group bombed UN headquarters in Abuja.
Hillary's refusal came despite the urging of the Justice Department, the FBI, the CIA, and over a dozen Senators and Congressmen.
The one thing she could have done, the one tool she had at her disposal, she didnt use. And nobody can say she wasnt urged to do it. Its gross hypocrisy, said a former senior U.S. official who was involved in the debate.
The FBI, the CIA, and the Justice Dept really wanted Boko Haram designated, they wanted the multiple authorities that would provide to go after them, and they voiced that repeatedly to elected officials. (Excerpt) Read more at thedailybeast.com ...
HILLARY'S NATIONAL SECURITY POLICES DESIGNED FOR PEOPLE WHO FELL OFF A TURNIP TRUCK Hillary refused to place the savage "Boko Haram" terrorist group on the State Dept list of foreign terrorist organizations.....and today puts on her best "outrage act" over the kidnapped girls.
"Faking amnesia means never having to say you're sorry."
COMING SOON---THE HILLARY TEAM
Hillary compiles a list of 2016 Cabinet Secretaries and appointees.
Obama's van driver---currently has national security clearance.
Tommy Vietor--Hillary's top pick for Secretary of State.
"Criminal" would be a better description, but I don't suppose these monsters have a more G-dly option in mind for these girls.
Not one single news report I have seen has mentioned this is Islam related. Not one. Cowards.
No, that was Bogo Haram, who considers 50% off sales forbidden.
Probability is that not a single one remains "unharmed"...
“Radical Islamists are at war with the West. The day we understand this is the day they lose. If we do not understand this is the day we lose.”
Sadly, since “we” includes vast swathes of ill-informed morons, at this hour “we” are losing, but the endgame is full of hope.
You could put a finer point on it if you zero in on the reality that Islam’s War On The West is rooted in the West’s centuries-old embrace of Christianity, and Islam’s enmity with Christianity is rooted in Christianity’s apostolic recognition of the Jews as the Covenant People of YHVH (ref. St Paul’s letter to the Romans chs. 9-11). The Islamists aim to eradicate Christ-followers, because Christ-followers understand their position as heirs-by-adoption to the promises of YHVH given under the Abrahamic Covenant, which understanding makes Christians brothers-by-another-mother to Abraham’s natural descendants. This realization carries the direct implication that the fate of Christianity worldwide is INEXTRICABLY ENTWINED with the destiny of both the people, and the land of Israel. All of that brings Christianity into direct opposition to the dearly-held Islamist goal of wiping Israel from the face of the Earth. Christianity will make her last stand on the Seven Hills of Jerusalem, defending to the death the right of Israel to exist as a sovereign nation. Happily, St. John The Revelator was gifted to see that this last stand will be joined by massive reinforcement at the eleventh hour, and ultimate victory will be secured; think “Helms Deep” amplified to the Nth order of magnitude, where N is one plus the largest number that the human mind is capable of associating with the idea of “quantity.”
The only hitch is that there’s a WHOLE LOTTA junk to go through between now and then.
Remember tours in 732. A worldwide redux is in the offing.
The way Islam treats women should cause that religion to lose 1st amendment protection and it should be reclassified as a cult.
> Boko Haram, which means “Western education is sinful”
NO IT DOES NOT!!!!
It means, BOOKS FORBIDDEN!
The West tweets and offers thug-leaders free weekends in Paris. Then wonders why "the violence continues."
“...Radical Islamists are at war with Western Civilization.
Probably not, since Mr. Will describes himself as "an amiable, low voltage atheist." (As he continued, in a recent interview: "I deeply respect religions and religious people. The great religions reflect something constant and noble in the human character, defensible and admirable yearnings. I am just not persuaded. Thats all."
I believe you're right.
Rush could run on for an hour with your observation.
Expanding on the comment, radical Muslims are the true followers of Islam. They consider moderate Muslims apostates, as deserving of death or enslavement as any Infidel.
"The bravest are surely those who have the clearest vision
of what is before them, glory and danger alike,
and yet notwithstanding, go out to meet it."
What Islamic principles did they violate? < /rhetorical question >
Maybe it is those who think it is their right to take God’s place and play god over their fellow human beings that has turned George Will off to a belief in God. Humans have through the ages given their religion a bad reputation. It was the actions of the Scribes and Pharisees that turned Jesus off. These Boko Haram fools are not giving their religion a good reputation. Perhaps they would be better off taking a walk down the Santa Monica Pier and catching the Mother Ship. There are many like me who say they can save the walk, and put on their Nike tennis shoes, black sweat pants and t-shirts with patches that say, “Heaven’s Gate Away Team,” put $5.75 in their pockets and drink the Kool Aid.
