Amazing story of how a mother re-united with the son she left behind in Boko Haram camp

Margaret, a mother of 5 (pictured above) was abducted with two of her children, a son Jacob and daughter Halima from her village in Damboa Borno state late last year. She was taken to a Boko Haram camp where she met another abductee, Hauwa. Worried and unsettled about the safety and well being of her other children aged six, eight and ten she left behind when she was abducted, Margaret took the risk and fled the sect members camp with her daughter, handing over her son to Hauwa who she begged to look after him for her.


20 year old Hauwa, (pictured above) took care of the child and another child while in Boko Haram captivity, claiming the children as hers and using them to disguise that she was a married woman.
Margaret lived with the agony of not knowing where her young son and Hauwa were but as fate will have it, Hauwa and her son were among those rescued from Sambisa Forest recently and taken to an Internally Displaced Persons camp where they both met and reunited.

I thank God for both of them - Hauwa and Margaret. You wont know the depth of damages caused by this sect if you've not been to the places they've attached. I know what I'm saying. I bless God for those that have been found. And pray that peace reigns in every city and villages of this great nation-Nigeria. Amen

Boko Haram seperated and destroyed so many families. The will continue to re-unite them and heal their wounds and broken hearts and spirits. IJN.

The Lord will continue to re-unite, heal and rehabilitate these ones IJN. Every pain, grief, loss and disillusionment they have faced, the Lord will renew their strength to survive and be better.

Hmmmn! see what unrest situation in the country has resulted to, families scattered here and there without being at war. And some stupid so called leaders are more concerned about power and looting. May God help us.
