My expertise is admittedly horrible that I needed to shed tears of pleasure that I used to be launched from that place and I’m reunited with my household. The expertise I’ve been by way of within the final 4 months will not be one which I might love my enemies to undergo.
“There was barely meals for us to eat for the primary three and a half months. We have been hungry for the primary three and a half months, although within the final two weeks they began bringing meals for us to eat and we have been okay. However within the first three and half months, we have been very very hungry. After I say very hungry this was an understatement. There have been days that we eat as soon as in a day, there was a baby that was barely one yr previous and a 90-year-old that was feeding as soon as a day.
“Whenever you speak about remedy, I used to be actually the medical physician on camp. I used to be treating the captives in addition to the bandits I imply the Boko Haram members. There was no remedy in camp. We heard on Radio that they’d usher in remedy but it surely’s not so. There was no remedy on camp. There was a girl that had malaria fever, malaria may be handled with N1,000, however this woman was going into coma as a result of there was no remedy for her malaria. So, the scenario is admittedly horrible.
“I personally didn’t expertise any molestation however some girls in camp claimed there have been makes an attempt at molestation however I personally didn’t expertise any. This occurred within the first one to 2 weeks after we have been dropped at camp.
“I want to name on govt to do no matter is critical to rescue the remaining captives as a result of they’re in very horrible scenario. They’re very hungry and there’s no remedy.”
