The student, Imran Usman, had only spent one term in the school, after transferring from a school in Kaduna.
His mother, Dr Hannatu Ayuba Usman, who is an oncologist with the National Hospital, Abuja, and his grandmother, Hajia Salamatu Abubakar Maina, narrated the boy’s ordeal on Brekete Family Talk Show on Human Rights Radio/Television.
Concise News understands that the story came to light four days after Imran returned home from school for holiday and reportedly informed his grandmother he would not want to return to the school.
He narrated how he and other children in the hostel were sodomised, how he was forced to watch other children slaughtered and how the corpses were roasted and the flesh forcefully shoved down the victims’ throats.
It was learned that Imran is presently in a bad shape, in need of surgery in his anus (as he could no longer control faeces) and an MRI scan because of the beating to his head.
The victim’s grandmother, Hajia Maina, gave a comprehensive account on the show.
She said: “On the day the school closed, the mother went to pick him. Normally nobody is allowed into the premises until after the PTA meeting.
“She went there at 8am and the meeting ended around 1pm. As soon as they got home, other family members were arriving for the holiday, so the house was busy.
“He tried to demonstrate something to me, but I didn’t give him enough attention. In Kaduna, his mother and I attended the lessons so we could communicate with him in sign language.
“Two days later, I washed his clothes and arranged them neatly in his school box. He likes wearing socks around the house.
“He went to take the school socks and I said, ‘no, everything here should be kept in the school box because we might travel and when we come back late, you will be returning to school and we don’t have to go about looking for your things for school.’ He said, ‘No, I will not be going back to that school.’ I asked why; he said he would die if he should return.
“He started demonstrating how when they slept at night, they were woken up, tied and sodomised.
“He said they did it many times to him, that it was painful, blood came out of his anus and his back was paining him and his head too.
“He also said they took them out at night to somewhere. Only boys and men were there, no woman. He said their leader is tall and also climbs on top of something to address them. He said they kill people in his presence.
“He demonstrated three ways they kill people––they turn the head, they cut the throat or they put the head on the table and severe the head.
“Then those killed were roasted. He demonstrated how the leader wore gloves and used a knife and a big fork to cut the roasted human flesh and the boys with their hands tied to the back forcefully fed with human flesh.
“He said anytime they brought it near him, he would start vomiting and they would hit him. He counted six times.
“They tried to feed him and he kept vomiting and they kept hitting his head. Back in the school, he tried to tell the class teacher but he was threatened, they said they would kill him if he mentioned it to anyone, having witnessed how they had killed some people, he was afraid to tell anyone.
“I was personally visiting him every two weeks since we took him to that school because I was worried about his health. Imran doesn’t eat much. He doesn’t like pepper. The school didn’t feed them early.
“They serve them breakfast long after 10 am, so we provided Golden Morn cereal and milk for him. He also showed us a part of his arm that is now black.
“He went to the cupboard and brought out a syringe but he said the one used on them was bigger, that they used that to draw blood from his hand into a cup and handed it over to the leader who drank it.”
