Chibok Girls who had been kidnapped by Boko Haram last year have been brainwashed by radical militant group Boko Haram to kill on behalf of their captors. This has been claimed by witnesses, or by a few of the girls who managed to escape captivity.
A 17 year old girl who escaped after 6 months of captivity and is now pregnant talked to the BBC and reported about the girls being brainwashed. They are forced into marriage after they are held as captives.
“They told us: ‘You women should learn from your husbands because they are giving their blood for the cause. We must also go to war for Allah,'” She said. She also recalled a time that the girls killed several men in her village.
“They were Christian men. They [Boko Haram militants] forced the Christians to lie down. Then the girls cut their throats.”
Another 16-year-old escapee said she saw a Chibok schoolgirl while she was held captive. “She was just like any of the Boko Haram wives,” she said. “We are more scared of the wives than the husbands.”
A 60-year-old woman, Anna, who was held hostage by Boko Haram for five months, told the BBC that the Chibok schoolgirls she met carried guns, and were described as “teachers” by militants.
These young women have also been used as suicide bombers and it is only possible after complete brain washing.
