The kidnappers of the Jangebe schoolgirls proposed marriage to the girls when they were in their custody.

According the girls who spoke with Daily Trust, the abductors shared their phone numbers to the girls on Tuesday and vowed to visit their parents to seek their hands in marriage.

One girl revealed that the abductors urged them to stop school so they could marry them. She said;

“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 the armed men are very afraid of the military and whenever fighter jets hovered in the air, they would scamper to hiding places.

“They nicknamed the fighter jet “Shaho” (hawk) and if they see one, they would ask us to hide under caves or trees. It is really frightening them,” she added.
