The female students abducted at the Jangebe Government Girls Secondary School in Zamfara State, have narrated their encounter with the abductors.
Speaking with Daily Trust on Tuesday, the freed schoolgirls revealed that their abductors gave them their phone numbers and professed love to them.
Several girls said that their abductors promised to contact them over the phone to find out if they had accepted the marriage proposal.
Hassatu Umar Anka, said their abductors advised them to abandon school so they could visit their parents to seek their hands in marriage.
“When we were about to be released, some of them came and starting pointing at us and saying, ‘We love some of you and we want to marry you if you would accept our proposal’. You shouldn’t be wasting your time schooling,” she said.
She said the kidnappers were afraid of the military and whenever fighter jets hovered in the air, they sought cover.
“They nicknamed the fighter jet “Shaho” (hawk) and if they see one, they would ask us to hide under caves or trees. It really frightens them,” she added.
