Mother Of Nigerian Secondary School Student Impregnated By Terrorist Dies After Suffering A Stroke

November 27, 2022

Sources told PRNigeria that the mother died as a result of 'grave emotional and psychological trauma'.

The mother of one of the abducted students of Federal Government College, Birnin Yauri, in Kebbi State, has died after learning that her daughter was impregnated by a terrorist in captivity.

Sources told PRNigeria that the mother died as a result of 'grave emotional and psychological trauma'.

Her daughter is one of the 11 female students yet to be released by the terrorists. Over 100 students and eight teachers were kidnapped by the terrorists from the school on June 17, 2021. The assailants killed a policeman during the attack.


A few days after the abduction, security operatives succeeded in rescuing some of the students and teachers while some escaped from the gunmen in the process of taking them away. The bandits also released the teachers and 30 of the students the payment of ransoms.


On the mother’s tragic death, a close family relation of the deceased told PRNigeria that the mother suffered a stroke shortly after receiving news of her daughter's pregnancy and later died.


"Before she passed away, our sister was bitterly worried about the condition of her abducted daughter. She was hit by a stroke and became paralyzed after the sad news.


"She kept asking herself why would the terrorists have the guts to sleep with her 15-year-old daughter, and impregnate her, in the process. She maintained that she could not welcome her daughter with a bastard, meaning she will have hatred for the child her daughter will deliver for their abductors," said the family relative.


In a related development, while some guardians are eagerly waiting for the release of their daughters, others are silently dying from the stigma of having grandchildren that would be called 'bastards'.


"We are hearing that some parents of the FGC Yauri female are confused on how to handle their daughters returning home eventually with babies, fathered by criminals. It is something that gives them serious worry.


"As such, they might show empathy for their daughters' plight, but not necessarily to the children their daughters delivered for the terrorists," a source in Kebbi State where the school is located told PRNigeria.


SaharaReporters earlier reported that Farida Kaoje, one of the 11 girls being held captive by the bandits had delivered a baby boy.


Kaoje, said to have been forcibly married to one of the leaders of the gang, Dogo Gide, was kidnapped alongside many others on June 17..


One of the girls who escaped from captivity disclosed that "Kaoje is now a mother; sadly, she was delivered of a baby boy."


Speaking on how she escaped, the girl who pleaded anonymity said, "I escaped with the bandits' cellphone. I had to earn their trust over a period of time.


"I was endeared to them after they noted I had distinguished myself in Quranic knowledge; so, they requested my services to give basic lessons from the Quran.


"As their 'Malama' (Islamic teacher), they believed I was too honest to run away, so they allowed me move around in search of strong mobile phone network with their cellphone.


"On Saturday, I resolved I was going to escape, so I had to damn the consequences and move further away. Thank goodness, I soon realise I had entered Dansadau town where I got to a police station and gave them the cellphone," she said.

"Disgustingly, both the federal and Kebbi state governments have kept mute over the fate of our beloved girls," one of the parents told SaharaReporters.


It is not clear why the police and relevant security agencies have been unable to use the mobile telephone to track the terrorists.
