FINALLY FOUND: Sick Chibok Girl Abandoned By Boko Haram

A girl believed to be one of the missing Chibok girls in Boko Haram’s captivity has been found close to the village of Kwarihi near Mubi in Borno State, where she was abandoned.

She was said to have been thrown out of a moving Volkswagen Golf car into a bush where she wandered for two days before been seen.

This was disclosed yesterday, September 24, by Hosea Tsambido, the Chairman of the Chibok community while speaking at the gathering of the #BringBackOurGirls campaigners in Abuja.

According to him, the girl who looked like she was mentally unstable gave her name as Susanna Ishaya.

She was picked up at Kwarihi village and handed over to one of the Chibok parents who took her to the hospital after which she would be properly questioned.

Tsambido said: “When she was asked, she gave her name as Susanna Ishaya but right now we are not sure if it is her real name until she is really treated because the people that saw her said she is both mentally and physically sick and has been taken to the hospital.

“We believe that she was probably abandoned by Boko Haram because of her health.”

He disclosed this on a day Borno State Government announced a scholarship of N1.4million each for 36 of the 57 Chibok school girls who managed to escape from Boko Haram captivity.

Governor Kashim Shettima said the 36 girls have been admitted into international schools in Abuja, Kaduna and Plateau States, pleading not to disclose the names of the schools.

Over 200 girls were abducted on April 14 from their school in Chibok by Boko Haram. Sadly, asied the 57 who escaped, the others are yet to be rescued.

A controversial report had come up on Tuesday that more of the girls had been released and driven to Maiduguri but Brig. Gen. Chris Olukolade, the spokesman for the Nigeria’s Defence Headquarters later disclosed that the girls spotted in the buses were not Chibok girls.

It was recently reported that the insurgents have agreed to swap all the girls for 18 key sect commanders currently in detention.
