A former Boko Haram captive has revealed that some young girls kidnapped by the sect agree to become suicide bombers in order to escape.

The former captive, a 16-year-old girl identified as Fati, also told CNN that the girls were raped by the terrorists.

“They came to us to pick us. They would ask, ‘Who wants to be a suicide bomber?’ The girls would shout, ‘me, me, me.’ They were fighting to do the suicide bombings,” Fati said.

“It was just because they want to run away from Boko Haram. If they give them a suicide bomb, then maybe they would meet soldiers, tell them, ‘I have a bomb on me’ and they could remove the bomb. They can run away.

“We said, ‘No, we are too small; we don’t want to get married, so they married us by force. There were so many kidnapped girls there, I couldn’t count.

“There were always bombs and bullets coming from the sky. All of the girls were so frightened. All of them, they always cried and the men raped us. There is no food, nothing. The children, you can count their ribs because of the hunger,” she added.

Meanwhile, the Nigerian military has said that the terrorists are now fleeing from their stronghold, Sambisa Forest.
