According to Zagazola Makama, a Counter- Insurgency Expert and Security Analyst in the Lake Chad Region, during the abduction of Bulama, the insurgents had promised his wife that they would not kill him. 

Sources said that the insurgents took Bulama and other abducted victims to the fringes of the Lake Chad where he was forced to treat wounded fighters and their families for several months.

A source said efforts of the state government and the security agencies led to the release of Mr Bulama.

Shortly after Bulama was released, he was moved to Maiduguri where he was reunited with his family.
