By Will Ross, BBC – “Two women who were abducted by Boko Haram in north-eastern Nigeria have given a rare account of life as captives of the Islamist militants.

‘They asked me if I am Christian or Muslim. I said I am Christian,’ said 23-year-old Liatu, as she recalled her ordeal in the hands of Boko Haram.

‘On the 11th day [in captivity], they brought a man to me and said that he liked me and I should convert to Islam so that he can marry me.’

She was stopped at a roadblock set up last year by the Islamist militant group. She said any Muslims employed by the government were killed on the spot, as Boko Haram had earlier warned them to leave their work.

She was taken to the insurgents’ base in Borno state’s Sambisa forest, where the bloodshed continued.

‘They were slitting people’s throats with knives. Both women and men were killed – especially the men who didn’t agree to fight for them,’ she said.

“Those that tried to escape were shot but they hardly ever used their guns to kill. They usually used knives. About 50 people were killed right in front of me.” …

Liatu spent 15 days in captivity and refused to eat anything. Then, after being told about the proposed marriage, she made an extremely risky escape…

Nineteen-year-old Janet was held for three months. She says that Boko Haram tried to turn her into a killer.

‘They went to Gwoza and brought five people to the camp. They started slaughtering them in front of me. Then they ordered me to slit one of their throats. I refused. I told them I couldn’t do it. Then the wife of the leader of the group killed him instead.'” Read more.
