Having been kidnapped by Boko Haram, held for almost a year, and raped by several militants, 28-year-old Aisha Umar could have been forgiven for believing her ordeal was over when she escaped and returned to her hometown in northeast Nigeria last year. But the mother-of-four was forced to flee her home in the town of Gwoza a fortnight ago when a man threatened to murder her two-year-old boy Mohammad, the son of a Boko Haram fighter.Over 2,000 women and girls have been abducted by Boko Haram since 2012, many of whom have been raped, trained to fight or used as suicide bombers, the report says.Umar believes the militant to whom she was married is the father of her 2-year-old son.
