Boko Haram

Thinking Out Loud: Ebola hits Boko Haram camp, Shekau begs kidnapped Chibok girls to go.

"Go" Abubakar Shekau shouted from afar at the frightened girls who were scattered on the field. "Carry her and go away or we kill you all", he shouted again pointing at a girl who lay on the floor looking pale and was bleeding.

On April 14, when men of the Islamic terror sect Boko Haram kidnapped the over 200 school girls from Chibok they never foresee that this day would come. The deadly Ebola virus which broke out in Liberia and somehow found its way to Nigeria through Patrick Sawyer had infiltrated their camp.

Last week, one of the girls, Aisha had killed a bush meat, roasted it and eat with three of her friends. Two days later Aisha became ill, having headache, fever and abdominal pain. This symptoms, one of the Boko Haram men learnt was associated with Ebola. The man reported to their leader Shekau and after investigating it was learnt that all the over 200 school girls had being in contact with Aisha.

In other not to get infected with the deadly virus which can be contacted via contact with a carrier's body fluids, Shekau and his men are sending the girls away.

"I beg you in the name Allah, carry her and leave else i will order my men to open fire on you" the Boko Haram leader shouted.

Two obviously scared girls managed to carry Aisha and they all left the camp with every other girl keeping distance. They managed to find their way to a town where soldiers rescued them and took them to the state government. They were all quarantined including the soldiers and the government officials who attended to them.

After series of test it was discovered that the girls were not infected with Ebola. Aisha had diarrhea and the symptoms associated with it was easily mistaken for that of an Ebola patient.

The girls were reunited with their families.

What a thought!!
