A 200 level student studying biological science in the University of Maiduguri, Mu’umain; narrated how he had to lie in order to escape from the Boko Haram insurgents who had abducted him.
According to Mu’umain, He was abducted with at least eight other students of the university of Maiduguri; while returning from school around Jakana area along the Damaturu-Maiduguri road.
While in their camp, he told the insurgents he was studying Arabic in school; so that he could understand and to preach the word of God better.
This apparently impressed the insurgents, who then took him on a motorcycle; and dropped him at a spot where he found his way back to safety.
Mu’umain, spent just one day in captivity; and was freed afterwards; while others are still being held captive by the insurgents.
