FREED CHIBOK GIRL SCREAMS ALL NIGHT…….ON HER FIRST DAY AT HOME


The first of the Chibok girls to make it home after being released by her Boko Haram captors spent her first night in freedom tossing and turning and screaming “They will kill me! They will kill me!”
So says Reverend Enoch Mark, who stayed up through Thursday night with the traumatized young woman. She appears to be the daughter of a Chadian carpenter who moved to the town of Chibok many years ago, Associated press reported yesterday.
She is the first of 219 girls held in captivity for more than five months to be released and to find her way home.
Some 276 female students were abducted by Boko Haram from the Government Secondary School, Chibok on April 14. Fifty-seven escaped by themselves that night or the following day-some by jumping from the open-baked trucks that transported them and clinging to branches of low-hanging trees.
The first appearance of a Chibok abductee could inspire hope, said Mark. The Church of the Brethren pastor who stayed with the young woman Thursday night.
