The police then rushed her to the state specialist hospital, Maiduguri.
Sister to the Biu, Borno State indigene, Zara said her sister was an easy-going person, wondering who must have attacked her.
Zara said, “She is my younger sister and I have been sleeping at the hospital since she was admitted.

Zara urged the police to identify, arrest and punish the culprits.
The UNIMAID Public Relations Officer, Mohammed Ahmed, said he was aware of the incident, adding that he could not comment because the incident happened outside the school.

“She said along the way, one of them came down, remaining her and another passenger. She said suddenly, the passenger brought out an handkerchief which he started waiving. She said she suddenly lost consciousness.
“According to her, she was sexually assaulted. She found herself around a railway line and she managed to get a Keke Napep which took her to the Dandal Police Station. There was no physical pouring of acid.
