The mother who lost everything
Jummmai Ibrahim was a famous big-time merchant. She lived very well and had good money from the booming fish trade near the Lake Chad. Suddenly Boko Haram came to dislodge their peace and cause serious lose of money and properties.
That day they were going to go to the market with fish to trade as usual. But later they lost everything because Boko Haram came in large numbers. They shot into every household and killed everyone whom they saw. All people began to run, and just some of them reached the IDP camp in Maiduguri.
Jummmai as other women feels not very comfortable in the camp, because they all had own business in Doro-Baga, but there they have nothing to do except sitting down every day and waiting.
Horror of the attack
Jummai told that Boko Haram continued to follow them as they fled to the bushes. Many people were killed in the bushes and many young women were abducted.
The woman also added that when she was running away, she saw two soldiers. One of them was stripped naked, and his manhood was cut off his groin and put into his mouth. She couldn’t stand the sight of such horror.
How Boko Haram killed Jummia’s son
Jummmai Ibrahim lost many of her relatives. Boko Haram gunmen took away one of her daughters who was pregnant and her three-year-old son and other 13 relatives of Jummai.
One of her sons also was killed by Boko Haram. When they saw her son with Jummia, they told that he is old enough to join Civilian-JTF. For that reason, they dragged him to the ground ad slit his throat.
They wanted to force her to hold his legs and insisted that she must keep her eyes open. Her son was screaming and asked the mother to help and pray for him. That is how her child was beheaded.
