DRC woman narrates how rebels abducted, raped, forced her to cook, eat human flesh

A Democratic Republic of Congo woman who was abducted twice by rebels, has narrated how the different groups raped her repeatedly and forced her to cook and eat human flesh.

The woman’s shocking ordeal was made known by human rights campaigner, Julienne Lusenge, at a meeting of the United Nations Security Council, on Wednesday, while revealing the atrocities committed by rebel groups in the eastern DRC.

The UN Security Council had convened the meeting for a regular briefing on DRC, where heavy fighting between the government and rebel groups since late May has sparked a surge in violence.

Lusenge who is the president of women’s rights group Female Solidarity for Integrated Peace and Development (SOFEPADI), told the woman’s story while addressing the 15-member council about the conflict-torn east of DRC.

Lusenge said the woman narrated how she was kidnapped by the CODECO militants when she went to pay a ransom for another kidnapped family member.

She said the woman told the rights group that she was repeatedly raped and physically abused.

“Then she said the militants slit a man’s throat. They pulled out his entrails and they asked me to cook them. They brought me two water containers to prepare the rest of the meal. They then fed all of the prisoners human flesh,” Lusenge said while recounting the woman’s story.

The rights campaigner said the woman was released after a few days, but while trying to return home, she was again kidnapped by another militia group whose members also repeatedly raped her.

“Again, I was asked to cook and eat human flesh,” she said, quoting the woman who eventually escaped from the new group after a few days.

Nigeria signs agreement with UK for deportation of illegal immigrants, ‘dangerous’ criminals

Published

Nigeria and the United Kingdom have signed an agreement that will see the deportation of illegal Nigerian immigrants and ‘dangerous’ criminals from Britain to the West African country.

After the memorandum of understanding was sealed between the two countries on Thursday, UK Home Secretary, Priti Patel, described it as a “landmark agreement,” noting that the first batch of deportees had already left the UK for Nigeria and Ghana on June 30.

The deported immigrants and criminals comprised of 13 Nigerians who were removed from the flight in Lagos and handed over to officials of the Nigerian Immigration Service, while eight Ghanaians, were then flown to Accra where they were removed.

The deported African criminals, according to a UK Home Office spokesman, had been handed combined prison sentences of more than 64 years, and will served the remaining terms in their respective countries.

The UK government has been embarking on the deportation of illegal immigrants and asylum seekers and in April, penned a deal with £120 million to deport immigrants to Rwanda.

Though the planned take off of the first flight on June 14 was stalled by the European Court of Human Rights intervention, the Boris Johnson government is still bent on removing illegal immigrants from the country.

According to a U.K. government minister, over 10,000 people had been deported from the U.K. between January 2019 and May 2022.
