Kidnapped Chibok Girl Found in Sambisa Forest

Nigeria's abducted girls from Chibok


AFTER more than two years in search of their whereabouts, one of the Chibok schoolgirls kidnapped by the Boko Haram on April 14, 2014, has been found alive at the Sambisa Forest in Borno State.

Reports said Amina Ali Nkeki, the first of the girls to be rescued, was found on Tuesday, May 17, by vigilante fighters (Civilian Joint Task Force) near the border of Nigeria and Cameroun and was taken to her family in Chibok Town for confirmation and subsequently transferred to the military for debriefing.

She was identified and recognised by one of the fighters. The Nigerian government has not formally commented on the development. About 276 girls were kidnapped in the middle of the night from their hostel at the Chibok Secondary School in Chibok, Borno State in April 2014.
