Boko Haram fighters did the abominable in Niger State when they raped some housewives whom they asked to prepare meals for them.

Bulus Esu, a Youth Leader in Kuchi, one of the most populated towns in Munya Local Government, stated this when Governor Abubakar Sani Bello visited the camp hosting the Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs) on Monday.

Esu said two weeks ago, the insurgents demanded N5 million ransom from the people to avoid being kidnapped, he said despite paying the ransom, the armed group still abducted them.

“When they came back the next time, they asked the women to cook food for them after which they still raped the women,” he said.

“For three weeks now there is no person living in Kuchi town and there is no food for the fleeing villagers. The armed men have entered very deep into the area and have overran several villages. They have occupied Kuchi where they now sleep as their homes.”

The governor also said Boko Haram fighters have forcefully taken over the wives of some of the villagers.

“I am confirming that there are Boko Haram elements around Kaure in Shiroro local government of Niger state. I am confirming to you now that they have taken over the wives of people by force and attached to Boko Haram members,” he said.
