Fatima Kabir, a 15-year-old ex-wife of the factional leader of Boko Haram, Maman Nur, said she was infected with HIV/AIDS after she was forced to have marathon sex with many sect members at the group’s Sigil Huda camp, Sambisa Forest.
Kabir and her 14-year-old accomplice, Amina Shua’ibu were arrested by officers of the Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC), Borno State command on Friday night.
At the time of her arrest, she was also discovered to be two months pregnant for a sect member. Kabir told The Nation that she was introduced to the group by her brother, Ibrahim Fadagana, in 2013.
“I was married to Mamman Nur in 2013. I was 12 years old at the period. On the wedding night, Mamman Nur forced himself into me and destroyed my vagina. He infected me with Vesico Vaginal Fistulae (VVF). I was sick for a while, but I became better.
