Lady narrates how recent Boko Haram attack in Geidam killed her sister


A survivor of the recent Boko Haram attacks in Geidam town, Yobe State, has narrated how she watched her sister die.

According to her explanation, she said they heard her sister crying for help but couldn’t do anything to save her until she died.

Speaking with BBC Hausa, she said that artillery which was thrown into her room exploded and claimed her sister’s life. She said the deceased left behind a daughter who is a few months old.

“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.”

According to her, 11 people died from the attack and that they are now living in the bush under the tree, not knowing what the future holds for them.

“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,” she narrated.
