Freed Kaduna-Abuja Lecturer Narrates Encounter With Terrorists
Mustapha Umar Imam, a lecturer at Usmanu Danfodiyo University, Sokoto, who has just been released by terrorists after four months in captivity, has narrated his ordeal at the hands of the assailants who attacked the Kaduna-Abuja train in March.
SaharaReporters earlier reported that terrorists who attacked a Kaduna-bound train on March 28, 2022, have released Dr. Mustapha Umar Imam, and four more kidnap victims.
He said, “My experience is really terrible. I have shed tears of joy that I am going to be united with my family very soon. The experience I have been through in the last four months is not something I can even allow my enemy to go through.”
He continued: “We were hungry for the first three and a half months. For the first three and a half months, we were very-very hungry. And if I say very hungry, it is just an understatement, there were days we just ate once. Just imagine a child that is barely one-year-old feeding once a day.
“When you talk about medication, I was literally the medical doctor in the camp, I was treating the captives and as well as the bandits, Boko-Haram members. There was no medication. We heard on the radio somebody was claiming he would bring medication whenever it was needed. There was no medication. There was a day when a particular lady had malaria which could be treated with N1,000 but this lady literally was going into a coma because there was no medication for her malaria.
“I personally did not experience any molestation but some women on camp claimed that there were attempted molestations.”
