Unes 200 noies alliberades de Boko Haram estan embarassades

L'exèrcit nigerià ha rescatat més de 700 dones i nens del grup jihadista en l'última setmana

" Vaig ser segrestada fa sis mesos a Delsak, quan el nostre poble va ser envaït per Boko Haram. E m van convertir en una màquina sexual. Feien torns per dormir amb mi. Ara, estic embarassada i no puc identificar el pare", ha relatat entre llàgrimes l' Asabe Aliyu, de 23 anys, al diari nigerià 'Daily Times'. L'Aliyu és una de les més de 700 dones rescatades per l'exèrcit de Nigèria en l'última setmana al nord del país i una de les 214 noies que han quedat embarassades durant el seu captiveri, segons ha explicat el director executiu del Fons de Població de Nacions Unides (UNFPA), Babatunde Osotimehin,  al diari nigerià 'Vanguard'.

El director d'UNFPA, una agència de l'ONU dedicada a la salut materna i als parts, també ha explicat als mitjans locals que en l’últim any l’organització ha assistit més de 16.000 parts al nord de Nigèria, actualment en conflicte. " Anticipem que això anirà en augment a causa de la intervenció militar . Cada cop trobem més persones que necessiten els nostres serveis", ha assegurat Osotimehin a 'Vanguard'.

Algunes de les noies rescatades han relatat aquest dilluns a diversos mitjans com els membres de Boko Haram van matar homes i nens davant de les seves famílies abans de prendre com a ostatges dones i nenes. "Cada dia presenciàvem la mort d'alguna de nosaltres i esperàvem el nostre torn", ha explicat a Reuters Asabe Umaru, una noia de 24 anys amb dos fills que en les dues últimes setmanes pràcticament no va menjar res.

Amnistia Internacional estima que des de principis del 2014 Boko Haram ha capturat més de 2.000 dones i nenes, que han estat convertides en esclaves sexuals o en combatents.

Osotimehin, while giving update of the response to the rehabilitation of the rescued women and children,  said the organization, in anticipation of the magnitude of the problem on hand, had put in place a formidable team in collaboration with the Federal and state governments, to first restore the dignity of the girls, who, he said, are facing severe psychosocial trauma.
