“She said some of the girls died in childbirth. Others were killed by bombs. Some girls were deafened by the explosions. Some of the girls were wounded and their legs were broken”.
According to Amina’s mother, some of the girls were given out as wives to Boko Haram fighters
“The man my daughter was given to was from Mubi. He was a mechanic when Boko Haram came. Everyone one ran away but he was under a car didn’t see them coming. They captured him and Amina was given to him as wife. He told her that they should run away that night. He promised to reunite Amina and her family even if it will cost him his life. My mind is at rest. Right now, we are not together but we do talk on the phone. At the moment, I don’t know if she is back in school or not. Before I left her she wasn’t in school. Amina said she doesn’t want to go to school again. She told the president that she wants the government to buy her sewing machines. She wants to learn tailoring and to own a shop”
