Chibok community leaders said Amina Ali Darsha Nkeki was discovered carrying a baby in the Sambisa Forest area of Borno State, yesterday, and was rescued by a vigilante group. Nkeki’s uncle, Yakubu Nkeki, told the Associated Press that she was 17 when abducted and is now 19, and pregnant.
He said she has been reunited with her mother, but that her father died while she was held captive. Ayuba Alamson Chibok, a community leader in Chibok, said Nkeki was taken to the military base in Damboa. “I know the family very well because I have worked with them, being a spokesman for the families of the Chibok girls,” he said.
Yakubu Nkeki, head of the Abducted Chibok Girls Parents' group, also confirmed her name and said she was 17 when she was abducted. He added: "She's the daughter of my neighbour. They brought her to my house." The circumstances of her discovery have not yet be officially confirmed.
The Nigerian Army on has also confirmed the rescue which is contained in a statement issued by the acting Army spokesman, Col. Sani Usman.
``This is to confirm that one of the abducted chibok school girls, was among the rescued persons by our troops at Baale near Damboa,’’ the statement quoted Usman as saying.
On the ongoing special operation inside the Sambisa forest, Usman said troops of 7 Division on Tuesday cleared Boko Haram terrorists out of their Njimia camp in Sambisa.
