‘Tell my parents I’m in trouble’ – Midwife sends WhatsApp message before abduction



One of the midwives abducted by Boko Haram in the wake of the attack on the Internally Displaced Persons, IDPs camp at Rann, Borno State, Thursday night, Hauwa Mohammed, said in a message via Whatsapp that her parents be informed of her kidnap by the insurgents. 
“We are under attack in Rann. They are shooting everywhere, please pray for me; please go and tell my parents that I am in trouble.” In a video message composed in Hausa in the heat of sporadic shooting by the insurgents at the military base they fled amid the shooting, Hauwa, 25, asked her friend to tell her parents that she was being taken away by her abductors.
Running and panting, the victim said: “We are under attack in Rann. They are shooting everywhere, please pray for me; please go and tell my parents that I am in trouble. Please, look for Fatima and tell her they are taking us away. They have entered here now…” It was learned that at that point, a male voice ordered her to keep quiet and not to move an inch. “That was the last that was heard from Hauwa,” the friend, Fatima said.
