A woman, who pleaded anonymity, has spoken of the weekend Boko Haram attacks on Geidam, a town in Yobe State, and how she watched her sister die in the incident.
The woman, who spoke in a BBC Hausa report, said that an explosive device thrown into her exploded and claimed the life of her sister: a nursing mother.
She said that her sister’s baby was rescued alive, adding that she is the one breastfeeding the child.
Since the incident, she said, they have been living in the bush under the tree, not knowing what the future holds for them.
She noted that11 people died from the attack.
“We heard her crying for help, but we couldn’t do anything until she died. We could only rescue her baby and God so kind nothing has happened to her. I’m the one breastfeeding her now,” she said.
“She was just sitting outside but entered her room. We don’t know where it came from but the artillery was thrown directly into the room. We don’t even know whether it is from Soldiers or Boko Haram, only God knows.
“We are now living under a tree just watching and thinking of our fate. We are tired of this life always living under threats. We lost our parents and many close relatives. What type of life is this?
“We trekked to this place from the town just like animals. We were crying. We are in trouble and don’t even know what to do honestly. Even now that I’m talking to you someone helped us with the water to drink.”
