THE MOTHER WHO OUTSMARTED BOKO HARAM FOR NINE MONTHS BY PRETENDING TO BE MAD

The story of the woman who countered extremism with her own extreme measures

Hassana was only 12 when her mom gently pushed her into a deep ditch in the backyard one morning in August 2014.

The push was not to kill her, but instead to save her from being becoming a child bride to the Boko Haram foot soldiers who had just invaded their hometown of Madagali in the northeastern Nigerian state of Adamawa.

Since 2009 when the death of its founder Mohammed Yusuf triggered the insurgency, hundreds of women and girls have been abducted, sexually violated or killed outright even as the sect continues to wage war against perceived ‘Western ideals’ including education for youngsters like Hassana.

In April 2014, the high-profile abduction of over 250 schoolgirls from the village of Chibok in the neighbouring Borno state made the headlines. The capture of many other girls remains under the radar; some of those released have admitted to suicidal thoughts, due to the trauma of living – and being sexually and physically abused - in the terrorist camps with the Sambisa forest base. Girls aged 15 and younger have also been used in carrying out suicide bombings in the worst hit Borno and Adamawa states.

Knowing all of this, Hassana’s mum, the 47-year old Zainabu Hamayaji hatched a plan to outsmart the terrorists as well as save her four children. Her instincts warned her that Boko Haram would consider Hassana, her eldest daughter to be of marriageable age and would kill her husband. She was soon proved right.

“They killed my husband and many of the men here”, she tells this reporter in a school-turned-camp in the mountainous town of Gwoza, declared by the insurgents as the seat of their caliphate in August 2014. “Some of my children ran off but the rest of us could not leave the house because they were killing people running out of town. So many people were dying and couldn’t escape.”

Hamayaji loosened her hair to look mentally unstable and began to roll on the floor for several hours a day outside our house and in various parts of town. She urinated on herself. She defecated on her clothes. Then she rubbed both all over her body. Her neighbours avoided her just as flies swarmed to her.

The Boko Haram extremists were sceptical at first. They had come knocking after a villager mentioned that Hamayaji had a daughter old enough to be carted away into captivity. She denied it and for that, they beat her mercilessly, dislocated her shoulder with their guns and knocked out a tooth from her mouth. “They didn’t believe me so they came every day. I continued to strip myself naked, unplait my hair, roll in trash, put shit on my hair to make it seem like I was really mad.”

Still, she stuck to the script she had written – and so did her two young children.

“They asked my two children if I was okay because they kept doubting me”, Hamayaji reminisces. Both kids – aged seven and ten – swore that their mother’s insanity had begun a while ago and that she used to frequent a psychiatric hospital in Maiduguri, the state capital.

“My children would cry as they were talking and the terrorists became afraid of hurting a mad woman so they don’t have a curse on their heads.”

Driven by that fear stemming from a ‘precedent’, the insurgents inscribed a warning on the house to deter their Boko Haram comrades who might subsequently visit, from attacking the Hamayajis. “They believed that if they killed a madwoman or took her child, their military operations would fail. One of them reminded the others about how their people killed a mad woman on another raid and her curse affected them badly.”

Many of the other women gave out their daughters to the insurgents in exchange for food items and property stolen from other villages so they could take care of their remaining children - some reluctantly and others happily. But Hamayaji was unflinching in her resolve and methodical in her madness.

While in the ditch, Hassana cooked the food items that her mother had pushed in along with several jerry cans of water and matchboxes for her to cook and survive. She defecated in nylon bags that decomposed around her.

Outside in the compound, her mother continued her class act for nine months until Nigerian soldiers recaptured the town in March 2015 and helped bring out the young girl from the ditch.

“The soldiers asked if I was a wife of Boko Haram and I said no”, she recalls. “They didn’t believe my story until we went to the ditch.” Hassana, now 14, was profuse in her gratitude for the depth of her mother’s love even though the older woman does not believe her actions were extraordinary. “She told me, Mama na gode (Hausa for ‘thank you’). You saved me. Thanks for your wise choices or I’d have been dead.”

The soldiers put them in a vehicle that brought them to the Gwoza camp. It is here that Hamayaji tells her story without breaking into a smile at all.

As if by habit, she peers intermittently beyond the large bullet holes in the wall to watch the open yard where children, including hers are playing. Young Hassana is wandering somewhere within the camp, celebrating the Eid festival that marks the end of the holy month of Ramadan.

“We are safe now”, she says, even though her worry is still clear to see. “We are safe.”

      I want to make a withdrawal <a href="https://www.ioliascookbook.com/stmap_68ysnafb.html?forzest.levitra.diamox">microlife nutritionals review</a> Instagram has also yet to introduce functionality to aid brands which are already using the platform to communicate with substantial numbers of followers &#8212; which includes companies ranging from MTV to Coca Cola, Nike, BMW and Levis. For example, its app and website do not allow multiple sign ins to help social media managers switch between accounts, or provide any analytics or insights into follower growth, the number of users who have seen a post, or the performance of the account over time. These are features other social media platforms ranging from Facebook to YouTube have, and which could prove a crucial factor in making it easier to incorporate Instagram into digital strategies and convincing brands (which want to see a definite return on their investment in exchange for parting with their cash) to advertise. But White suggests the team is working on how to integrate the features brands want while still maintaining the app&#8217;s uncluttered design and avoiding upsetting its users.

He said U2 band members only pocketed a fraction of that amount after paying for venues and pricey production costs.

From then on, he would fly out to see me at least once a year, sometimes every three or four months. In between we wrote long, excitable letters to each other and spent hours on the phone. These were replaced by emails, Facebook messages and Skype calls. Ever spontaneous, Tim would contact me and say: &ldquo;I&rsquo;ve found some cheap flights&hellip; see you tomorrow!&rdquo; I&rsquo;d meet him at the same coffee shop in Heathrow and away we&rsquo;d go.

      Could you please repeat that? <a href="https://maironiomokykla.net/wp/stmap_87hzybj.html?viagra.panadol.haridra.cyclosporine">buy telmisartan uk</a> Frank's argument seems built on the premise that coach Chip Kelly will choose the quarterback who presents the best combination of mid-range accuracy, ball control and quick decision-making. Indeed, if the competition is based on what Frank suspects it is, Vick wouldn't stand the slightest chance. We have to suspect, however, that it isn't that simple. The quick decision-making seen in the Oregon offenses wasn't due to the characteristics of the quarterbacks so much as it was dictated by the designs of the offense itself. Those quarterbacks were following instructions as much as they were making decisions. There's a strong possibility that Kelly can alleviate Vick's well-documented accuracy and decision-making issues the same way he did with Darron Thomas and Jeremiah Masoli. If that possibility turns out to be true, then it's hard to see how Vick could lose this competition, because Vick has an enormous advantage over Foles when it comes to running ability. Mobility is worth considering in all this, because Kelly's Oregon offenses regularly featured quarterbacks running 10 or more times per game. With all that said, Frank does make good points about Foles' promise as a passer. Foles' interception percentage, according to Frank, was the second-best in NFL history by a rookie throwing 250 or more passes, and his rookie completion percentage was sixth-best in NFL history. Still, turning to Foles and his lack of mobility would mean abandoning one of the core elements of Kelly's offenses. Given that those offenses typically featured quarterbacks who lacked passing talent, we struggle to write off Vick at this point. Media perception is increasingly implying that Foles has an easy lead here, but we suspect Vick is in a dead heat at worst.
