Markus 28 years I was involved in a bad road accident in 2012, my leg was severely injured and doctors wanted to amputate it. I spent the next 18 months in and out of hospitals across the country trying to find a surgeon that could properly fix my leg. In January 2014 I was on my way to the hospital again after Christmas celebrations. While travelling Boko Haram had blocked the road, they stopped the car. I was abducted that day along with an old pastor from the south. The Boko Haram members knew we were Christians, they decided to keep us in the camp to bring us out of the darkness, and teach us the Koran. A few boko Haram members that could speak English would teach us scriptures every day. We wanted to escape, but the pastor was elderly and I could not run because I am permanently on crutches. Sometimes new captives would be brought to the camp, and killed right in front of us. Every month they would discuss whether they would release us, but the never did. The pastor and I would fast 3-5 days sometimes. There was one guard who was very vigilante through the night, so we knew we could not sneak past him. We decided we had to wait for rainy season, so that no one could trace our steps. On the 1st of October 2014 a very heavy rain came in the afternoon. We knew this was our moment so that evening we made our escape. It was a 5 day journey through the bush to get to safety. I was in captive for nine months, my family did not believe I was alive until they saw me face to face. I can no longer stay in my hometown for security reasons.
