I would rather my daughter was dead - Parent
“I can’t quantify what I am feeling now! Worse still, my mind would have been more comfortable if I had seen the body of my daughter,” a father of one of the abducted girls said yesterday.
He said the abducted girls are more than 300.
“In fact all those SS 3 students writing their final year examination of WAEC have been abducted. Only a few of them jumped out of the cars and escaped,” he said on the BBC Hausa radio.
“As they dropped out of the vehicles they ran into the bush and managed to escape. But all the rest have been abducted.
“I followed the route of the abductors and came across two girls that escaped.
‘Even this morning (yesterday) around 9am, I reached one village along the way, where they warned me not to proceed, because they told me thye Boko Haram members were just nearby.
“I stopped but later continued, and soon after to 10 I found three burnt cars on the way.
“I decided to return home after I spent the whole night in the forest.
“I found my wife in a coma, up to now she could not speak. I don’t know which hospital to take her now, because we are all terrified.”
