Jangebe schoolgirls’ abductors gave out their phone numbers to their victims and promised to visit their parents to seek their hands in marriage.

Several girls who spoke with Journalist said their abductors professed love to them and promised to contact them over the phone to find out if they had accepted their marriage proposal.

One student, Hassatu Umar Anka, said their abductors advised them to abandon school and get married that marriage is our culture not schooling.

“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 armed men are terrified 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 frightens them,” she added.
