Chibok girls are in Gwoza, says freed Boko Haram abductee

The missing Chibok schoolgirls held captive by Boko Haram

By Samuel Malik

Over 200 girls abducted in Chibok in April 2014 are being held in Gwoza town in Borno State, a woman who was recently released by the Boko Haram sect has told the icirnigeria.org.

She said she was held in the same location as the abducted Chibok girls.

Mbutu Papka, 56, who was kidnapped in July 2014 and held by the insurgents for eight months in two locations, said confidently that the abducted girls were being held under very tight security in a house in Gwoza.

Ms. Papka said nobody is allowed near the fenced building where the abducted girls are being held under 24-hour security. Even the heavily armed guards, who keep watch over the girls round the clock, it was learnt, are only allowed to go into the house to deliver food, water and other supplies to them.

The woman was seized along with others when Boko Haram attacked Gwoza on July 4, 2014 and taken to Mdita, a remote village near the notorious Sambisa Forest, bordering Askira Uba, Damboa and Gwoza.

The abductees, who included many children, according to Ms. Papka, were kept in Mdita for five months before being transferred to Gwoza, where they were held for three months before they were finally released on March 15.

It was while in Gwoza that she learnt that the Chibok Girls, whose abduction has attracted global attention, were being housed in a compound adjacent to where she and other abducted people were kept.

Asked how she knew the girls were there, Ms. Papka said she never saw the Chibok girls, but explained that people in the area pointed at the heavily guarded flat and said the girls were inside.

Because access to the house was restricted, she said, the girls apparently did their own cooking and chores by themselves.

“In the camp at Gwoza, there were clear demarcations between where people were kept. The Chibok girls, other captives and Boko Haram members and their family members all had their separate areas secured, though the security in the area where the girls are kept is visibly different and much tighter,” she said.

Ms. Papka explained that the conditions under which the captives in Gwoza were kept were fairly tolerable and far better than the first location, as there was water supply.

She said that after they were taken to Gwoza, their living conditions improved remarkably because the town has modern facilities, as opposed to the rustic Mdita.

“When we got to Gwoza, things changed because there were facilities there and the place was 10 times better than Mdita. We had a normal life in Gwoza, except the trauma of living in captivity. Whatever we wanted to eat, they were provided. They would bring water, firewood, etc., and leave them outside,” she explained.

A few other comforts were provided.

“They even provided perfume for anyone who requested for it,” she added.

According to her, at Mdita, she met other abducted people including women and children, among whom were many under the age of seven, all living in terrible conditions.

“There was a room we used to urinate in and because of lack of water, the place stank and maggots were everywhere. We took our baths once daily, if we were lucky,” she said.

Because of the terrible conditions and absence of health care facilities in the camp, many people fell sick and some died.

“There was a Redeemed Christian Church of God pastor who was killed during the attack on our village, and his wife was abducted with us. She died at Mdita due to the condition of the place and the death of her husband,” Ms. Papka said.

The pastor’s wife, she explained, had diabetes and, before her abduction, had been on a special diet which could not be provided by the insurgents.

Ms. Papka said she and the other women were not raped or assaulted, although she could not speak for the Chibok girls because nobody was allowed to see or interact with them.

She also said that the Boko Haram men lived with their wives and children in the Gwoza camp, but kept away from others and cooked their own meals.

On March 15, 2015, after three months in Gwoza, Ms. Papka and 10 other older women were taken from the camp, herded into a vehicle and driven to Izge, a village, from where she was taken to her own village on a motorcycle because the road is bad.

The ride, however, was not free.

“I was asked to pay N8, 000 for the motorcycle ride, which I collected from my family,” she stated.

This website also learnt that a two-year old boy was given to Ms. Papka when she was released. The boy, who is reported to be sick and has rashes on his body, has since been reunited with his family, which is now seeking financial assistance to take the child to hospital.

“He was crying uncontrollably, so they (Boko Haram) handed him over to me as we were leaving,” she said.

Gwoza local government area of Borno State, which is just over 100 kilometres from Maiduguri, the state capital, is said to be one of the council areas still wholly in the hands of Boko Haram terrorists.

Gwoza town was first captured by the insurgents in August last year, following a heavy gun attack by insurgents who hoisted the sect’s flag and declared it the headquarters of the group’s Caliphate.

Over 12,000 persons were displaced from the town and repeated attempts by the military to recapture it in the past have failed largely due to the hilly terrain, which provide hiding places for the terrorists from which to operate.

This website has learnt that it is not the first time that released Boko Haram abductees have claimed to know where the Chibok girls are being held.

Emman Shehu, a founding member of the Bring Back Our Girls group, told our reporter during the week that a young girl who was released last week and an elderly woman had previously claimed that the Chibok girls were being kept in Damboa and Sambisa area.

Mr. Shehu, who is also director of the International Institute of Journalism, Abuja, said: “Two people, a young girl and an elderly lady have said in the past that they know where the Chibok girls were being kept, the girl saying that only last week.

“We have heard people say in the past that they know where they are. We heard before that some of them were in Damboa, but the military has reclaimed Damboa and they did not say the girls are there,” he said.

The whereabouts of the Chibok girls has been a mystery since April last year when they were kidnapped while writing exams in their school.

Mr. Shehu, who lambasted the military for the manner it handled the abduction of the girls, said that since April when they were kidnapped, the military has made no attempt to rescue them.

If there had been any rescue mission, he observed, the military would have been giving regular updates about the progress being made in that effort.

“There has never been a rescue mission by the Nigerian military to free the Chibok girls,” he said, adding that the federal government and defence headquarters have not shown seriousness or the political will to rescue the girls.

For example, Mr. Shehu said, the #BringBackOurGirls group learnt during the visit of Yousafzai Malala, the Pakistani girl-child education activist, to Nigeria, that the 57 girls who escaped from the insurgents had not been debriefed either by the military or any other security agency.

More than 200 young girls were abducted by Boko Haram gunmen at the Government Girls Secondary School, GGSS, Chibok, on April 14, 2014, the same day that suicide bombers wreaked havoc in Nyanya, on the outskirts of Abuja, the Nigerian capital.

It was reported that the 276 girls who were writing their final West African School Certificate, WASC, exams were kidnapped when the insurgents attacked the town pretending to be security guards and asked the girls to come with them.

What followed, particularly the reaction from the Nigerian government, caused a lot of outrage that eventually changed the dynamics in the fight against the sect.

Less than 48 hours after the abduction and Abuja bomb blast, President Goodluck Jonathan was pictured dancing at a rally in Kano, and it took him almost three weeks to publicly speak about the incident, saying government was doing all it could to free the girls.

It was also reported that the Nigerian military had four hours intelligence prior to the kidnapping, something the military later admitted, but said its over-stretched forces could not immediately send in reinforcements.

The government’s attitude drew widespread criticism and protests grew against its response, which was viewed as tepid. Protests were also held in major Western cities, including Los Angeles and London.

At the same time, the popular movement for the release of the girls, the Bring Back Our Girls group, was formed. The movement’s hashtag, #BringBackOurGirls, attracted more than two million tweets within its first week.

The Chief of Defence Staff, Air Marshal Alex Badeh, once said that the military had located the girls, but ruled out a forceful rescue mission for fear of harming the abducted girls.

On July 23 and 24, 2014, vigils and protests to mark 100 days of the abduction were held in Nigeria, Pakistan, India, Bangladesh, Togo, the United Kingdom, the United State, Canada, and Portugal and following global attention brought by the abduction, the UK, US, France, China, Canada, Israel and the European Union all offered support to Nigeria.

But despite all efforts by Nigeria and other nations, the abducted girls have remained in captivity, with no clue about their fate.

If Ms. Papka’s present condition is anything to go by, even if the girls have not suffered any physical abuse, the emotional and psychological trauma inflicted by their experience would be, indeed, enormous.

ICIR reporter learnt that Ms. Papka’s experience appears to have left a permanent impact on her. Her children say she is like a stranger to them. She is easily scared by sounds and approaching footsteps and prefers to stay alone, not talking to anyone.

These are apparently effects of her abduction and detention by the insurgents. Sadly, there is no mechanism put in place either by the state or federal government, or even civil society organisations, to provide any kind of counselling or medical care and assistance for her.

It was learnt that the Borno State government is aware of the release of the 11 women by Boko Haram as their return home was widely celebrated in many villages, but as at Wednesday morning, 10 days after, no state official has visited any of them or offered any kind of assistance.

On Wednesday, when our reporter talked to one of her relatives, she said the family was planning to take her to see a psychologist.

Attempts by the icirnigeria.org to share information about the girls’ whereabouts with the military and get its reaction were not successful, as the Director of Defence Information, Major-General Chris Olukolade, said in a telephone conversation that he was out of town.

Although it was agreed that the information was too sensitive to be shared on the telephone and that a face-to-face meeting was necessary, Mr. Olukolade, who said he was returning to Abuja on Tuesday, has not reverted to us at the time of publishing this report.

    This man is a terrible person! 6 years! Hes now doing everything in 2 weeks just because of elections? And see how recklessly hes spending money. Not his money but money he and his friends stole from Nigeria.

    God have mercy! I dont blame GEJ , GEJ is just a guy on a hustle who found a deal fell on his lap when Yar’Adua died.

    The real mumu that i blame are the hateful Nigerians who are against Buhari because hes a Muslim man from the North,

    GEJ is not Buhari’s mate in anyway! How can you reelect this man called Jonathan for another 4 years?

    When people misbehave, you punish them. Jonathan should not be rewarded with another 4 years!

    Shettima and buhari must be spending a lot of money to provide 24 hours security for the chibok girls, just so they can continue to use them for political campaigns against Jonathan.

      Mr. evil, it is better to keep quiet and pretend to be sane than talk in public and remove all doubt !!!
      Ask Dumbo to release the girls 24hrs to the election as planned; they have suffered enough.

      • evi

        Useless drug addict accusing someone of not being sane, you think sniffing cocaine like tinubu will help your life. Shettima should tell us where the chibok girls are, because he is the one that insisted they be in school for waec exams even when waec advised against conducting exams in chibok . Tell shettima and buhari to release the girls and stop using them to campaign against Jonathan.

        • progress

          Shetima is holding the girls and your uncle the imbecile is doing nothing about it abi? More reason why we should vote GMB because it shows he has enough balls to lead Nigeria. Sai Buhari Joor!

          • evi

            An imbecile, yet he is your president,democratically elected, by the way, not a coup plotter like your own imbecile terrorist uncle, who has contested three different times, under three different political parties, against three different candidates ,and lost all three elections, about to lose the fourth one, their is a reason nigerians rejected him three times, the same reason nigerians will reject him a fourth time. The only balls buhari has is to marry a nine year old girl and sponsor boko haram to achieve his selfish ambition, even as head of state, idiagbon was in charge.Buhari will release the girls whether he likes it or not and he will pay for his atrocities, sooner than later .

        • tundemash

          Mr. evil, you just buttressed our point; Dumbo is a weakling!
          You claim Shettima is holding the girls and a cl0wn who claim to be C-in-C of the armed forces is doing what about it ?

          Only four sets of people
          can vote and support Goodluck Jonathan 2015:

          (1) those who are intellectually blind.
          (2) those who are blinded by ethnicity.
          (3) those who are blinded by corruption and therefore afraid
          of the unknown, should power change hands.
          (4) those who are suffering from a combination of all the
          above terminal sicknesses.

          Mr.evil, you are clearly terminally sick !

          • evi

            Stop rehashing other people’s comments,it shows you are mentally challenged and incapable of forming and articulating your tholughts, be original in your contribution, illiterate and your drug addiction problem
            is not helping. Today GEJ is a weakling, tommorow he is Hitler, next tomorrow he is gbagbo. You idiots can’t seem to make up your damned minds . I am not buhari that is terminally sick and suffering from prostrate cancer, that is why he had to go for medical check-up in the UK and has not been visible in apc campaigns after his return, stop projecting buhari’s illness into others, pray for him to be alive to go to jail for pejury so he can die in prison peacefully,bcos that is the most befitting place for him to die. And stop sniffing that cocaine, av warned you before.

            Can you tell us how buhari got credit in hausa language in his result when university of cambridge does not offer hausa language, then or now? As if you will recognise or comprehend thesis. Is phd the minimum qualification to vie for presidency? Is it not wasc? Tell buhari to show us ordinary wasc cert before you start asking for thesis that is too much for your illiterate mind to handle.

          • Gbemi

            oh my Gosh, you this small yahoo yahoo rat? I asked you simple question about “Dr.” Goodluck Jonathan’s “Phd” thesis because I want to read it. You just confirmed by your answer that “Dr. Goodluck Jonathan does not have a Phd. Thank you

          • evi

            Believe what you like, go and ask buhari for his cert before you start looking for thesis, Uniport confirmed Jonathan’s phd, let university of cambridge confirm buhari’s wasc cert, not the oluwole statement of result ,a school principal signed for him with his 50 years old pix attached. The minimum qualification to vie for presidency is wasc not phd, If you want to read any thesis, go and write your own. Moron.

          • General Buhari had shown his WASC and many more certifications to INEC and anyone who matters. Show me why he should show you who are inconsequential, when you will not believe those who matter?

    “There has never been a rescue mission by the Nigerian military to free the Chibok
    girls,” he [Mr. Shehu] said, adding that the federal government and defence headquarters
    have not shown seriousness or the political will to rescue the girls.

    “We have heard people say in the past that they know where they are. We heard
    before that some of them were in Damboa, but the military has reclaimed Damboa
    and they did not say the girls are there,” he [Mr. Shehu] said”

    Come now! Mr. Shehu. How can the army rescue the girls if they don’t know where
    to look?

    But why is everyone blaming the army when the mediocre DSS should be the one
    responsible for providing the army with the intelligence and movements of the girls.
    One would expect any intelligence agencies to have moles, informers, and spies
    amongst the boko haram members.

    With 200+ girls, boko harm would need to buy food in large quantity. Trace any
    large purchase of food, soap, etc and it will lead you to the girls whereabouts.

    The useless DSS failed to nip boko haram in the bud and allowed it to flourish and
    become a menace. And what is the DSS now doing, in terms of building networks
    of informers in the army liberated villages and town? I would imagine, nothing!
    They are all sitting with the oversized bums in air-condition offices in Abuja.

      Nigerian company, ACT.Technologies Limited, owned by Tinubu was awarded a N2.6 billion contract by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) to produce the PVCs, which was in turn sub-contracted to a Chinese firm.

      Based on the electronic payments exclusively obtained from INEC by THISDAY, the transfers showed that over N2.6 billion was paid to the Nigerian company where Bola Tinubu has substantial interest, for the production and supply of over 68.8 million PVCs within a period of seven months.

      It was further gathered that the PVCs were expected to be produced at a unit cost of N65.

      THISDAY gathered that the electronic payment mandate for the production of the PVCs was routed through two banks, an Islamic Bank – JAIZ Bank – and the First City Monument Bank (FCMB) Limited between 2013 and 2014, which showed that ACT.Technologies charged with the production of the PVCs had been fully paid, but is yet to supply all the PVCs for the elections.

      A breakdown of the payment mandate showed that INEC on February 14, 2013 paid the sum of N489,937,500 to ACT.Technologies, being part payment for the production of the PVCs. The money was paid through JAIZ Bank.
      Another transfer of N585 million was made on July 16, 2013 to the company via FCMB; on June 11, 2013, N293,962,500 was effected through JAIZ Bank; while on August 13, 2013, INEC paid N130 million.
      In addition, N234 million was paid to ACT.Technologies for the supply of 40 million PVCs through JAIZ Bank on January 24, 2014, while the last transfer of N590,871,418 was made on February 19, 2014.

    Concerned Nigerian gender activists have called on the women of Edo State to forgive BUT NOT TO FORGET the unguarded comments recently credited to Mrs. Aisha Buhari, wife of the APC Presidential Candidate, General Muhammadu Buhari.
    Mrs. Buhari had in a campaign rally for her husband’s presidential bid in Edo State over the weekend had described the women of Edo State, as “prostitutes” claiming her husband’s administration will stop the prostitution by Edo women abroad.
    In a swift response to Mrs. Buhari on Monday in Benin, Sarah Obozuwa, Founder of the Edo Women for Change (EWC) called on Edo women to forgive Mrs. Buhari. “Aisha Buhari was born on September 29, 1979. As of today, Mrs. Buhari is only 35 years of age. She was married to Buhari in August 13, 1989, at the age of 9. This means that Buhari at age 47, in 1989 was having sex with Aisha Buhari at the tender age of 9, an underage according to the constitution of Nigeria. So Mrs. Buhari is a victim of sustained childhood rape and her outbursts are understandable”, she said.
    Speaking further, Mrs. Obozuwa said: “How Buhari got Aisha Buhari pregnant at age 13 is a chilling story of a Buhari who defiled Aisha as a little child while she was visiting Zulai, Buhari’s eldest daughter who was her playmate. It is ironic how such a traumatized woman now stands at the vanguard of stigmatizing fellow women.”

    • Getting married with the consent of one’s parents is culturally acceptable. But being picked up in a brothel and TRANSFORMED TO A FIRST LADY is not any better. Can Jonathan show his marriage certificate? OR is this another of Jonathan’s TRANSFORMATION AGENDA?

        U mean at 9—————is acceptable in the human society–its even better for one to pick a woman from the brother than rape an innocent 9 year old gal——–may that be yr portion in life—-if that is yr only ambition——– to rape a 9 yr old gals-

        • Show Jonathan’s marriage certificate awarded from a BROTHEL in the creeks of murderous egbesu criminal cult dens. Buhari, if your false allegation is ever true, which I doubt, married according to his culture, not yours, long throat slanderer.

    Nigerians are quick in pointing out errors about things we know very little about.Now that information is emerging about the possible location of the Chibok girls,it is only proper for us to pray for the girls,their captors,our government and personnel that might be involved in the rescue of these girls.All these talk about government knowing the location of the girls is most unfair and is a sign of not being nationalistic.
    If our desire is to see our government rescue these girls without making adequate arrangements and planning,lets please remember the Belsan school hostage crises of September 2004 when a group of armed Islamic separatist militants, mostly Ingush and Chechen, occupied a school in the town of Beslan.Russian security forces stormed the school building with the use of tanks, incendiary rockets and other heavy weapons. At least 385 hostages were killed, including 186 children,with a significant number of people injured and reported missing.Rather than have more of the terrorist’s killed,more of the hostages were killed.I am sure this is not want we would want to happen to the Chibok girls.
    The Belsan event led to security and political repercussions in Russia.Rather than stampede our government into taking an approach like the Russians did,we should know that “… God sits on His Holy throne”-Psalm 47:8.Lets pray for the hostages,not only the Chibok girls,but lets also remember the 100 Syrians that were kidnapped by Isil.Scripture calls us to “remember those who are in prison,as though in prison with them”-Heb13:3.Lets ask God to intervene on behalf of those held captive.Lets pray for their miraculous release and safety.
    God’s angel released Peter from Herod’s prison in answer to intercessory prayers.Let’s pray for our leaders.Psalm 82:4 commands us to “rescue the weak and needy;deliver them out of the hand of the wicked” .God’s word calls us to pray for our leaders-1 Tim 2:1-2.Lets pray for our president as he searches for effective options in tackling BH.Lets pray for our soldiers that are in harms way in Borno.Pray for their families at home.
    Let’s remember the kind of faith that empowered the 21 Coptic Christians who refused to renounce their faith and gave their lives for Christ.May these Chibok girls be granted same faith.

    Aisha Buhari was born on September 29, 1979. As of today, Mrs. Buhari is only 35 years of age. She was married to Buhari in August 13, 1989, at the age of 9. This means that Buhari at age 47, in 1989 was having sex with Aisha Buhari at the tender age of 9, an underage kid according to the constitution of Nigeria. So Mrs. Buhari is a victim of sustained childhood rape and her outbursts are understandable”, she said.
    Speaking further, Mrs. Obozuwa said: “How Buhari got Aisha Buhari pregnant at age 13 is a chilling story of a Buhari who defiled Aisha as a little child while she was visiting Zulai, Buhari’s eldest daughter who was her playmate. It is ironic how such a traumatized woman now stands at the vanguard of stigmatizing fellow women.” Buhari should be in jail and not talking about the Chibok girls–

      Islamic Fundamentalist Bokohari is also a pervert, a paedophile who “married” a baby at the age of 8 (Born September 29, 1979 and “married” by Bokohari on August 13, 1989). This perv should be in jail. Is this victim the one that will go around the world as Nigeria’s first lady? Where are the freedom, human right, and sundry fighters of Nigeria?

        What do you think of a President-Jona-who sleep with his poppy eye minister -Madam Oil Diez AM? That is the FIRST MAN-the President himself sleeping with his minister! Diaris God ooooo!

        • Bala

          Sleeping with one of your ministers is not a crime, though not very honorable. Sleeping with an underage girl, however, is a crime.

          • Mohammed Abubakar

            Sleeping with one of your ministers and sleeping with the sister of your minister at the same time when the three are aware, and when the “husband” of your minister is looking and the President’s “wife” Mama Peace is also looking? I go laafu taya! And who be di “Mama” of Oga Jona shildren, sef-I mean di “FIRST” “Shildren”?

    • Zarto Ali

      All in the name of politics. ? You appear so mean and low. If you have nothing positive to contribute better keep mute. For all what you said can not change the fact that GEJ is clueless and dumbo under whose watch corruption and impunity of unimaginable proportion persists. Now you better say something about mama pissss. As it is the only thing you are good at.

    • burning spear, no wonder nobody can stand you because of your terrible slanders and character assassination of responsible honorable individuals. Prove your slanders, bo.

        DO U WANT TO FORGE ANOTHER AGE DECLARATION CERTIFICATE FOR US AGAIN–HAVE WE NOT HAD ENOUGH–FORGERY FROM TINUBU ATI BUHARI–ALREADY

  • Kola Adekola

    This news is false. The woman never mentioned the word “Chibok” in any interview.
    This is just a sad reflection of the state of our press.

    • Olufemi Aboaba

      But as part of the President Goodluck Jonathan electoral Nollywood Film and Dance where he-Jonathan suddenly MORPHED into a “caring” Commander in Chief, when will our Chibok “caring” Commander in Chief (Jonathan) ORDER the release of the Chibok Girls? Does the “caring” and “winning” Commander in Chief-Goodluck Jonathan want to ORDER the release of the Chibok girls a day before election-FOR EFFECT TO SHOW HOW “CARING” HE IS SO THAT HE ALSO “CARES” FOR OUR VOTES!!! ? I dey laaafu for our “hardworking” “commander” who even puts on Military uniform these days to show how “serious” he is!!! You guys in Goodluck Jonathan govt and presidency including Jonathan himself are jokers but mean and wicked.

      • Kola Adekola

        You sound mad, bro.
        What has any of what you said got to do with my allegations of an irresponsible press?
        Somebody asks you about Sokoto, then you start misfiring about Abeokuta.

        • Olufemi Aboaba

          Are you this annoyed because we caught you in the act? I beg no vex. Just say Hi to our “winning” and “caring” Commander. Just as our “caring” Commander suddenly “remembered” that soldiers died in the Boko Haram war front for the past six years, I guess the D-Day for the coming of the Chibok girls is the eve of the election to make a “point’- eh eh eh I dey laaaafu ooo”Kola”.

    • sawston

      It’s called deductive reasoning.

    • adelabu

      Agree. Even the woman’s name is not Nigerian at all. What is Mbuta Papka? What state or ethnic group in Nigeria bears that name? The whole thing is fictional. Sahara Reporters and Premium Times have been fabricating lots of false news to influence the election. Recently Sahara Reporters reported that 500 more children had been abducted by BH from a town recently liberated by Niger and Chad. But the truth was that after the town was handed over to Nigerian military some that had survived told them over 500 women and children had been taken away during BH occupation of the town, and that was not something that happened just a few days ago.

  • richkid

    NW = President Mohammed/Mohammadu Buhari
    NE = President Ndume
    NC = President Jonah Jang
    SW = President Bola Tinubu

  • favourtalk

  • Hembe Hembe

    Who is fooling who? Nigerians have gone beyond the deceptions told by abductees.
    Nigeria Military will get chibok girls very soon. In a matter of weeks to come.

  • Anene Mercy

    By His Grace, Gwoza will fall soon.

  • Mosope Oni

    The new wave of APC lies : proper slander under a fake Nigerian looking name. This is there last call since GEJ fended off all their previous lies. They kept this one in store so he wouldn’t have tome to prove it wrong.

  • Dozie Nzewi

    Set up a special squad to look for the Chibok girls. To work behind enemy lines if necessary. Its a pity that the security forces have not infiltrated Boko Haram whereas the reverse may be true. Nigerian leaders do not know best practices. After Jonathan a person with sufficient international exposure should lead Nigeria.

  • President Jonathan once said that Boko Haram members had infiltrated his government. How so very true!

  • The CHIBOK girls will be happy to learn the well researched statistical projection of the coming elections.

    My COMPUTATIONS For Nigeria’s March 28, 2015 Elections

    I have my computations below for a free, fair, creditable and verifiable election. I may revise it Friday day before elections.

    2015 Elections

    SW = 70% of registered voters x 70% Voters Turnout = 50% x 9M = 4.5M

    NW = 80% of registered voters x 80% Voters Turnout = 64% x 16M =10.2

    NE = 80% of registered voters x 80% Voters Turnout = 65% x 8 M = 5.2M

    NC = 80% of registered voters x 80% Voters Turnout = 65% x 7.5M = 5M

    (NC voters may be split 50:50 between PDP and APC)

    SS = 90% of registered voters x 90% Voters Turnout
    = 80% x 8M = 6.4M

    SE = 90% of registered voters x 90% Voters Turnout = 80% x 6M = 4.8M

    So, the Voters Pool for APC is 4.5+10.2+5.2+2.5 = 22.4 million votes

    The Voters Pool for PDP is 2.5+6.4+4.8 = 13.7 million

    APC in a free, fair, verifiable election wins by about 9,000,000 voters pool.

    The victory margin of APC will be (22.4/36.1) x 9M or about 5,600,000 votes.

    Sooner or later we will find those girls. Just wait till BH have their back to the wall. It’s a matter ok weeks now before there are cornered in. They won’t bother hiding their victims, then. They will run away and try to hide.
