To all of you Western women who keep complaining about how “mistreated” you are in the Western world because the government does not pay for your contraceptives, how about you switch places with the women are really suffering. Here is report about what women really go through in Nigeria; one woman was raped by four men for numerous day and another was raped by three men for a year:
Maryam was strolling to her family’s farm in the rocky hills behind the northeastern Nigerian town of Gwoza when two Boko Haram fighters blocked her path. The insurgents had overrun the area several months before, ransacking food stores and conscripting young men at gunpoint into raiding homes to extend their control across the region. Women were dragged away to remote camps, where they were subjected to forced marriage and rape; some were even brainwashed into becoming suicide bombers. The 20-year-old mother of two had so far kept clear of the militants’ wrath, but on this day, the men each took turns raping her while the other held a machete blade against her neck. Maryam begged to be let go, but she knew resisting could mean death.
The gang rape was her initiation into a ruthless culture of sexual violence. After the attack, Maryam was marched to a forest camp, where she would spend the next two months with dozens of women rounded up in mass kidnappings. Though many of the fighters had forcibly taken multiple wives, she became the servant of a group of male teenagers, who were often riled up from days spent looting and killing. They taunted her with machine guns and violated her at will, anonymously, their faces cloaked in black scarves. “A man rapes you and goes away, and another one comes,” she says. On the worst days, up to four men took turns with her.
One of the freed women, Falmata, 25, says Nigerian security forces were nowhere to be found when Boko Haram attacked her village near Maiduguri, the group’s birthplace and the capital of Borno State in northeastern Nigeria, back in July 2014. In the middle of the night, equipped with flashlights and AK-47s, they went door-to-door among the adobe dwellings, firing into the air and executing any males they found, including her 20-something next-door neighbor, who was slaughtered in front of his mother. Along with some 40 women, Falmata and her then 4-year-old daughter were taken to a camp on the fringe of Sambisa Forest. No food, clothing, or shelter was provided—the women had to make do on what they could scrounge, and the constant hunger and fatigue made it hard for Falmata even to speak. She says she was forced to have sex with three men on a rotating basis for the better part of a year. “If I refused, they would do it forcefully—this is how I became pregnant [with a second child],” Falmata says. “They are barbaric, the worst people I have ever seen.”
