Unexpected journey from Nigeria to Cameroon and back
to Nigeria again (due to Boko Haram Insurgency).

There was a boy whose name
is Nunaya; he lives in Mubi North Local government Area of Adamawa State
Nigeria. He belongs to the family of seven namely:

Father : James Andest
Mother: Magret Andest
1st Born: Murhyel Andest
2nd Born: Jeremiah Andest
3rd Born: “Nunaya Andest” (Writer of this article).
4th Born: Sidamaryhelwa Andest
5th Born: Jesse Andest
There is
only but “one girl” (4th Born:
Sidamaryhelwa Andest
) amidst four (4) boys, their father adopted his
mother’s son (The son of their grandmother), named Shadrach Anthony.
Now here
goes the story of “Nunaya Andest”:
Some time ago, in the heart of Mubi Town, something terrible happened on the 29th October 2014
when his father travelled to Yola (The capital city of Adamawa State), for his
proposal defense for his PhD. In
Mathematics science, while their first born was in the village. Since in the
night of the day 28th October
2014
, they were alerted to sleep one eye open their mother at hearing this
report she called her husband and told him what she heard that night. Her
husband (Mr. James Andest) her
husband called one of his comrade Mr. Sunday Joshua that “if anything should
happen on the long run of tomorrow, he should carry his family along (The Andest Family) and drop them in the
village”.
            On the 29th October 2014 in the
morning Nunaya and his siblings got
dressed for school whiles their mother (Magret
Andest
) went to her office. When Nunaya,
Sida
and Jerry reached their school, during the assembly, a father of
another student in the school picked his daughter. They finished the assembly
and went to their respective classrooms. After the first period lessons were
over, the school bell was rang by Mrs.
P.Z Maidugu
like that of break time which was unusual in the school, the
principal called for another assembly and told the students to go home straight,
because “the town is not that safe for the day”, so Nunaya and his siblings went home and at that moment the town
became very rowdy, immediately when their mother came back home she asked them
to pack their clothes and their things needed for an unexpected travel.
Speedily news spread over town that “Boko Haram” insurgents were in the town
and that the military do not allow people to get out of the town. So “ADSU” (Adamawa State University)
management decided to go and beg the military to allow them convey students out
of the town, Nunaya’s family decided
 to follow the University bus but
unfortunately  there was no way out
because the military were running and the boko haram insurgents were shooting
Guns at them. They returned back home and stayed for about 30minutes, which
after they went into the University they stayed there also for about 30minutes
and making phone calls to get help. Many suggested that the University was not safe,
so they went out of the University moving towards the outskirt of town, they
moved on rough roads and in the evening they arrived at a town called “Mbahuli”, were they slept there in Mrs. Rhoda’s friend’s House (Nunaya’s Sunday School Teacher’s
House).
They next morning, on 30th October 2014, Nunaya’s
family and their neighbor’s family (Mrs.
Abbas Family
)
Together with Mrs.
Napoma
started hiking (trekking), Mr.
Abbas and Mr. Sunday
were let in “Mbahuli”
because the car of Mr. Abbas
developed a problem. After the families trekked a long distance away from “Mbahuli” they sat down to have a rest
just then Mr. Sunday and Mr. Abbas arrived
with their cars carrying the children, picked the two families and precede pass
through many pedestrian and people whose cars spoiled on the way, they reached
a village where they fetched and drank water, the people in that village
started running that they heard the news that Boko Haram Insurgents were in “Mbahuli”.
            The two
families drove with Mr. Abbas being
in front, suddenly an ADSU (Adamawa State University) Staff tyre
got punctured, Mr. Sunday stopped
and helped the man untie his tyre and put another one. Mr. Abbas not seeing Mr. Sunday’s car stopped and Mrs. Napoma went back and checked on
them, Mr. Sunday told her that
nothing went wrong with them, and then she came back. After putting the tyre,
they drove and caught up with Mr. Abbas
in Cameroon boarder. There were about two thousand (2,000) people [refugees] that were present in the
Cameroon boarder that day. The military men in Cameroon boarder addressed them
and told them that soldiers were coming from the capital to be escorted the
other boarder; they spent the night there sleeping on mats as in better
position than others that have not even a single mat.
            The next
day in the morning being 31st
October 2014
, the refugees saw that the soldiers had already arrived. Nunaya’s family and Mr. Abbas family
cooked rice and plantain which they ate, and around 6:00pm that same day about
two hundred (200) cars in a convoy, they took off for the other boarder, they
travelled all day long and at night they stopped at a place with dried grasses
where they spend were they spent their night and in the morning, being the 1st of November 2014, they
woke up and stayed there for quite some hours in which they fetched drinking
water and at nine (9:00am) they continued their journey, they passed through a
town called “Hamakossou”. At about
3:00pm that evening, they stopped at a town called “Le Demsa” where they bought water then continued the journey and
at about 5:30pm same day, they arrived at the boarder of Nigeria and Cameroon.
It was a river; some of the people living there helped the refugees whose cars
stuck in the river to remove it, Mr.
Sunday’s
car also got stuck too but they were able to remove it. Then they
drove into Nigeria and arrived at Yola (The
capital city of Adamawa state
) where they met with their dad (Mr. James Andest) at about seven thirty
(7:30pm) in the evening that same day,
