Can you introduce yourself?
My name is Adarju Adamu Juliet. I am 28 years old. I am a trader. I am from the Askira/Uba Local Government Area of Borno State.
Are you married?
Where do you reside?
I stay in Maiduguri but I am in Damaturu, Yobe State, currently.
Why did you relocate to Damaturu?
I was no longer comfortable in Maiduguri following the incident that happened?
Can you narrate what happened?
Early in January, 2020, my mother fell ill. So, my elder sister told me to bring her to Maiduguri for treatment. On our way to Maiduguri, along Damaturu road, we heard gunshots. The people who fired the shots came out with their faces covered and stopped us. Three of us in the vehicle were women. The armed men asked for our names and religion. Those of us who identified ourselves as Christians were separated and I was the only lady among them. After that, they collected all we had and told our driver to leave with my mother because they would take me away.
Thats a Good one
