Story from Saleh INUWA, Kano
Jinka Yama, one of the recently rescued Chibok schoolgirls has said she’s looking forward to reuniting with her husband, a suspected Boko Haram terrorist, stating that she’s still in love with him.
She was quoted as saying that “she wants her husband to lay down his arms and surrender to the Nigerian Military so that her desire for a reunion can be achieved”.
Yama who escaped from Boko Haram captivity with three of her children told journalists at a press conference at the Headquarters of Operation Hadin Kai (OPHK) that she still misses her third husband, Usman and the father of two of her three children.
According to Yama, she had told her husband in captivity of her intention to escape but he asked her to do whatever she wished.
“I took three of my children and we walked through bush paths for two hours before we were rescued by the Nigeria Army,” Yama said.
Narrating her ordeal in captivity and how she got married to three different Boko Haram fighters, Yama stated that her first husband, Abubakar decided to join the breakaway faction of the Boko Haram terrorists faction led by Mamman Nur before she then got married for a second time to another terrorist, Darda.
However, it wasn’t long before Darda met his waterloo and was killed by the Nigerian Forces in one of the raids on Boko Haram terrorist camps. Yama revealed that she did not have any child for Darda due to his sudden death.
The rescued Chibok schoolgirl revealed that she had her first child, 5-year-old Aisha for her first husband. At the same time, 3-year-old Fatima and 1 year, six months old Umaira was born to her third husband whom she earnestly wishes will soon surrender to the Nigeria Military.
Yama is among the three Chibok schoolgirls recently rescued by the Nigeria Military. The other two girls are Falmata Lawan, Asabe Ali and two of their children.
“I just hope Usman surrenders as soon as possible, I can’t wait to reunite with him,” Yama said.
