How we sold our belongings to rescue our daughters

By Editor

Wife of Abubakar Bello  Furfuri, a former Accountant-General in Zamfara has revealed that the family sold its belongings to raise money and rescued their daughters, saying that nobody assisted them with money during their ordeal 

The girls who spent about 5 months  in captivity, were abducted from their home in Furfuri, a community in Bungudu Local Government Area of Zamfara State in June, 2022.

Speaking in an interview, mother of the girls, Hajiya Hadiza Abubakar said the family was thrown into deep confusion and worry when the girls were in captivity. 

She however expressed gratitude to God that her daughters were not violated while in the forest. 

" I'm extremely happy for their release. Thanks be to Allah. Although they have some few problems."

" I'm so happy because they told me that nobody violated their decency. Except that there were bites and other hardship which they encountered," she said. 

The mother explained that a video released by the terrorists recently, which showed her daughters with big guns, was very disturbing but she resolved to leave everything in the hands of God. 

She said it was a joyous mood reuniting with her daughters as they hugged each other crying, but had to allowed them leave when the State Governor wanted to meet them. 

"They told me that they were allowed to bath only 5 times while in captivity, and even then without soap "

"That they were always frightened anytime the terrorists told them they would never come home again, since no additional money was being sent to the terrorists. "

"Nobody gave us money, we had to sell my husband's belongings  and those of friends and relations before Allah made it possible to rescue them," she said.

The freed girls, according to sources, were now receiving medical attention and counselling at a government health facility  in the state.
