“One day, some people came to the camp and said that they were taking us to a better place. That was how I got to Alhaji Aliyu’s house and it was there, every day, his brother forcibly slept with me.
“After that, he would beat me and one of Alhaji’s wifes too would always beat me. One day she attacked me with a knife. That was how I got the wound in my skull,
“I was happy leaving the camp, but when we got to his house, there was no wife. He raped me continuously for three nights, locked me inside his house for days and threatened me.”
