Chibok Girl Found with Baby, Says Chibok Activist


One of the missing Chibok girl found by locals at the edge of Sambisa Forest was found with a child, whose age is yet to be determined.

One of the Bringbackchibokgirls# activist and founder of Girl Child Africa Bukky Shonibare told CNN in an interview the girl’s name is Amina Ali from Mbalala Community close to Chibok.

She said the girl was number 127 on the list of Bringbackchibokgirls# group 219 missing Chibok girls as Amina Ali Darsha Nkeki from Mbalala.

“Amina Ali came back with a child, whom she has been breastfeeding. The exact age of the child is not yet clear”.

Shonibare said a member of the local civilian in the Joint Task Force found her at the edge of Sambisa Forest and took her to the military in Damboa.

She said the girl is still with the military contrary to the earlier information that she had been reunited with her mother.

Asked by CNN why her account should be relied upon, she said it was given to her by her source in the Chibok Community.

Shonibare also said the girl told the military that six of her mates had died in Boko Haram captivity.

A statement issued later by Bringbackchibokgirls# group said: “One of our abducted Chibok girls, Amina Ali Darsha Nkeki from Mbalala, has been found in Kulakaisa area at the fringes of Sambisa Forest by vigilantes from Chibok on patrol yesterday night.

Her name is #127 on our list of 219 missing Chibok girls attached.

“According to the Chairman of the Chibok Girls’ Parents Association, Mr. Yakubu Nkeki, Amina Ali was found alongside her child of about a year old. She identified the vice principal of her school GSS Chibok as well as spoke with her mother.

“She provided useful information that her other classmates are still held under heavy terrorist captivity in the Sambisa forest area.

“She has been handed over by the vigilantes to Nigerian troops at Damboa who help with facilitating the verification of her identity. We await official confirmations from the military and the Nigerian government”.
