More horrific details have emerged about the recent Boko Haram attack in Baga, Borno State as an escapee has said that the terrorists have 'taken control' of the young women in the town.

The resident, who fled the town after the attack, told the Hausa service of the BBC that the captured women are being ‘raped and abused.’

She also added that in the evenings the terrorists pick the women ‘who are neither pregnant nor nursing mothers and take them away.’

‘They don't bring them back until the morning. If it is not rape what are they doing to them?’ she added.

The unidentified resident however said that not all the women were averse to relationships with the terrorists as ‘there are some young women who show interest in the Boko Haram militants and want to marry them.’

‘I saw about 25 of them who were having good relationships with them,’ she added.

The woman also confirmed many accounts that the now deserted town is littered with corpses.

“There are lots of bodies scattered on the street and some have started decomposing. The militants gathered the old men who could not leave the town and some strong women and forced them to bury the corpses because of the stench - I saw all of this,” she said.

Boko Haram is believed to have killed up to 2,000 people in the attack which has now been claimed by the sect’s leader, Abubakar Shekau.
