The 21 freed Chibok Girls said on Sunday in Abuja that for “one month and 10 days’’ of their abduction by the Boko Haram insurgents, they stayed without food in the bush.

Ms Gloria Dame, one of the rescued girls, narrated this while giving testimony on behalf of her colleaques at a thanks giving service organised for them at a DSS health facility in Abuja.

The Minister of Information and Culture, Alhaji Lai Mohammed, and Minister of Women Affairs, Hajiya Jummai Alhassan, attended the service.

The girl, who spoke in Hausa language, said their survival in captivity was an act of God.

“I did not know that a day like this will come that we will be dancing and giving thanks to God among people.

“For one month and 10 days we stayed without food. I narrowly escaped bomb blast in the forest.

“We are praying to God to touch the heart of Boko Haram insurgents to repent and we are calling on Nigerians to pray and fast for the release of our remaining ones in captivity,’’ she said.

  5. I can't still believe that some people don't believe they were adopted. I guess it's because your children or relatives are not among them. If you have ever experienced an adoption, then you will know that it's not a joke. We hear of adoption and we are asked to pray for the return of the adopted but many will not pray simply because their flesh and blood is not among them. But those that God has answered their prayers, you will still not allow them to rejoice. God is watching all of us.
