Fortunately many got away, but I fear some did not. Oh the horrors these women are about to go through. May God have mercy on them and save them from such evil:
AL ARABIYA – Suspected Islamic extremists abducted about 100 female students from a school in northeast Nigeria before dawn Tuesday, but some of the teens managed to escape from the back of an open truck, officials said.
The girls were abducted after midnight from a school in Chibok, on the edge of the Sambisa Forest that is an insurgent hideout, said Borno state police commissioner Tanko Lawan.
Gunmen killed a soldier and police officer guarding the school, then took off with at least 100 students, a State Security Service official said.
A local government official said he did not know how many of the girls have escaped but that “many” have walked through the bushes and back to Chibok. The girls were piled into the back of an open truck and, as it was traveling, some grabbed at low-hanging branches to swing off while others jumped off the slow-moving vehicle, he said. The two officials spoke on condition of anonymity because they are not authorized to give information to reporters.
Islamic extremists have been abducting girls to use as cooks and sex slaves.
