We were not tied, but guns were pointed at our heads and they were beating us constantly every day.<br><br>They beat our women too. There was one useless one among them who didnt bother whether youre a woman or a man before he started beating you.<br><br>They beat us with sticks. As theyre beating us, theyre asking us to bring money.<br><br>They asked us to forgive them and we said we forgave them. We asked them to forgive us too so that we could leave the bush.<br><br>Another freed passenger, Hamza Muhammed Buhari, said: They starved us because they only gave us handful of food that was not enough.<br><br>We cooked rice with contaminated water, while about ten of us took a bottle of contaminated water. We were tortured daily. It was indeed bad and terrible.<br><br>The freed passengers had been taken to the hospital for treatment.<br><br>Meanwhile, the 27 students, three staff and family members of Government Science College, Kagara, Niger State abducted last Wednesday were still in captivity as of the time of filing this report yesterday.<br><br>Father of slain Kagara student speaks<br><br>The father of the boy killed by bandits during the Government Science College Kagaras attack, Ayuba Dansabe Bawa, said the incident would not deter him from sending his other children to school.<br><br>He spoke during a condolence visit to him by the Niger State Commissioner for Education, Hannatu Jibrin Salihu.<br><br><br>Niger is under-policedGov Bello<br><br>Niger State Governor Abubakar Sani Bello yesterday said the state was grossly under-policed.<br><br>He spoke in Minna when federal lawmakers from the state paid him a condolence/solidarity visit over bandits attacks in the state.<br><br>He said statistics within his reach showed that There are only 4,000 policemen to cover the entire Niger State.<br><br>There used to be 14,000 policemen in the state before, and by now, we should be talking above 14,000 we used to have, especially with the upsurge of all forms of criminalities in Niger State.<br><br>More importantly is that government should invest more in technology to manage security, he said.</blockquote><a href="https://dailytrust.com/we-saw-hell-in-captivity-freed-niger-passengers">https://dailytrust.com/we-saw-hell-in-captivity-freed-niger-passengers</a>
